Siena: Half-day Guided Hike to Monteriggioni

1. Siena: Half-day Guided Hike to Monteriggioni

Give your mind a rest from the noise of the crowded towns, follow your expert guide on a pleasant walk along the Via Francigena, an ancient pilgrim route for the first time plotted down by the Arcbishop ‘Sigeric the serious’ of Cantebury on his return from Rome in the 9th century and considered the main artery to Rome throughout the middle ages. This route, that has for centuries been a highway of men and emotions, a spiritual pilgrimage and a wealthy trade route, has been forgotten and almost entirely relegated to history by the modern paved car roads. Only recently the route has been brought back from the grip of modernity and is today enjoyed by many pilgrims and hikers alike. Experience the beauty of the mixture between the Tuscan countryside and the glory of its medieval past, still present in it's wonderfully preserved castles, villages and ruins.  See the Tuscany you would never want to miss before returning home, pass through forests and fields, vineyards and olive groves from Siena to the imposing fortress of Monteriggioni. A medieval walled town located on a natural hillock, built by the Sienese in the thirteenth century as a bastion of defense in their wars against Florence.  Once in Monteriggioni, enjoy a guided tasting of local organic wines before saying goodbye to your guide for the end of the tour. Feel free to explore the village and the surrounding area at your own pace. You will be given a bus ticket to return to Siena.

From Siena: Small Group E-Bike Tour with Winery Lunch

2. From Siena: Small Group E-Bike Tour with Winery Lunch

Enjoy the first sights of the Chianti hills. At the starting point and before heading off on your biking route, familiarize yourself with the bike and equipment and make the necessary adjustments to fulfil your heart's desire! Then experience a closer feel for the region through a leisurely, small-group bike tour on sophisticated and easy-to-use e-bikes.  Tuscany with its historic Eroica race has rendered itself as one of the world's most famous cycling areas. E-bikes now make this area accessible to all, even those with very little biking experience. Set and modify the level of difficulty at any time, whether uphill or down the valley and give the Chianti biking experience a new flavor. The silent electric motor allows you to take in the sounds and smells that the people driving through the area inevitably miss. Enjoy the tranquility of this beautiful countryside through a route of quiet roads away from the main traffic. Enjoy an easy-paced, 20km (12mile) ride of approximately 3 hours that will allow you to explore the neat rows of vineyards, pretty olive groves, dense and shaded forests.  As well as the quaint and picturesque villages for which the Chianti has become known. Be surprised by the occasional modern art installations among the vegetation, adding a touch of quirky modernity to an otherwise traditional landscape that has otherwise remained unchanged. Take some unforgettable pictures throughout the morning, during the frequent stops to take in the sights and views, breathe in the fresh, countryside air. Explore a beautifully restored Monastery dating back to the 15 century, including its neat Renaissance gardens and silent cloisters. Admire the stunning chapel fresco, known as the "Little Sistine". Having replenished your senses, jump on your bikes for one last, short ride to the family-run winery that will welcome you to learn about the long-standing art of making wine, from the vineyards to the cellars. Then sit down to a delicious tasting of the winery's wine and olive oil, accompanied a full lunch including platters of tasty local products.

A wonderful tour! We had a lot of fun and joy with our guide Kiko. Kiko went to great lengths to bring the country and the people closer to us. It was very exciting to learn things from the past and from the present time. Wild herbs along our hike on the pilgrimage route and anecdotes from the past made the hike very entertaining. The path was very pleasant to walk. In Monteriggioni we had a very nice wine tasting. We really liked the wine, so we even ordered delivery to our home. Afterwards we had a very good meal in the nice little place. We would have loved to have stayed there. I highly recommend this tour! Thank you dear Kiko!

We were very lucky with the weather and with our guide Ricardo. And the only two of us were on the road with him. The tour is not without, many meters in altitude and about 45 km. But it's easy to do with a solid eMTB if you're used to German low mountain ranges. A few breaks and great views of the Tuscan landscape around Siena later you come to a winery, with incredibly good food and very good wine. We would do the tour again ANYTIME. Price is absolutely justified.

An experience to do. I recommend it to everyone. I who have problems with my knees the next day did not suffer. The assistant Domenico excellent guide and attentive to people's needs. Thank you thank you thank you The assisted bicycle is fantastic, there is almost no fatigue. Beautiful places visited and dolcius found the wine tasting with excellent lunch. I repeat highly recommend the experience.

Great 3 hour morning hike with personable and naturalist oriented guide. Lovely lovely scenery. We would have preferred a bit more background on the Via Francigena. Winery to end with was great - we bought the winery’s artisan cheese to go along with the bread and Chianti. Overall, an excellent experience and great value!

Very nice easy hike with many beautiful views of the countryside. Very good hiking guide, who also gave the participants a lot of information about nature, the country and the landscape.
