Chianti is a wine practically synonymous with Italy itself, benefiting from an unparalleled terroir that nurtures the best in Italian reds—something you’ll quickly appreciate on our Tuscany cycling adventures. We’ll pedal first to Montalcino, hometown of the most famous Tuscan red, Brunello di Montalcino. We also track through Greve and Panzano, literally immersing ourselves in Chianti along the way!

Complemented by outstanding meals, you’ll also learn from the experts about the finer points of Tuscan cuisine, and its wonderful olive oils. Visiting the homes of renowned local producers (some of whom are your Ciclismo Classico guides), you’ll take part in cooking lessons in authentic Tuscan cuisine. We’ll also visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Val d’Orcia and ride the “Crete Senesi,” one of the most beautiful Tuscany bike routes.

Guaranteed

Confirmed tours are dates that have been selected by us that have a very high probability of reaching the minimum group size for us to run the tour and for you to receive the best Ciclismo Classico experience. These tours are confirmed as much as a year in advance, compared to our regularly scheduled tours which are confirmed around 90 days prior to departure.  When you place your deposit for a confirmed tour, you have the green light to make your pre and post travel plans and even book your flight with our personal guarantee that your tour will run!

Optional Single Supplement

If you are traveling alone, this optional single supplement will guarantee you a room to yourself at each hotel. The cost of a single room is often more than half the price of a shared room, so this additional supplement reflects that increased cost for each night over the course of the trip.
