Tuscany is the heart of Italy, from where its culture and character derives. This bike tour will visit the best of the region, from the medieval towers of San Gimingano, to the endless vineyards of the Chianti wine region, and into the center of Florence. Our accommodations will vary, but each night you will have a comfortable bed to sleep in, at times in 18th century buildings with windows overlooking the town. Riding will range from from 20 to 40 miles with transit options and support vehicle along the way to aid our ride. We will cover a large portion of the region and you will experience the best that Tuscany has to offer. The region's wine, its pecorino cheeses, and the finest olive oil in the world will all be available to you as you dine each night, and stop along the way. Our final destination will bring us to the Mediterranean port of Follonica, a chance to bask in the sun and relax before our return to Florence. This is an enjoyable trip for anyone who would love to visit Italy, and experience it to the fullest.
Hiking option in Cinque Terre
The Cinque Terre is a remote chunk of the Italian Riviera that is a required visit for any trip to Italy. The hike follows an old footpath along the Mediterranean, crossing through the five medieval towns, to the final destination of Monterosso al Mare (where the sandy beaches await). Each town exudes it own charm, and a short visit in each will leave you with fond remembrances of its character. If possible, do not miss this short addition to the trip, it is not often that you are able to visit an Italian paradise.
