Savor a “taste” of Tuscany as we bike through the glorious heart of Italy.
Our six-day “taste” of Tuscany bike tour is the perfect introduction to Italy’s much-loved region of sublime landscapes, fine cuisine, and even finer wines! Starting on the banks of the Arno in Malva, our Tuscany cycling routes follow delightful, twisting roads, past stone-built hamlets, and through fertile landscapes warmed by the sun. We pedal through the dramatic Pratomagno mountains, famed for their myriad microclimates, passing tiny historic towns as we cruise down byways lined with cypress trees and flanked by ripening vineyards.
On the Sette Ponti (Seven Bridges) road, we’ll cross the Ponte a Buriano, renowned as the rustic backdrop to the Mona Lisa’s enigmatic smile. Along the way, you’ll get to savor the best of the region’s cuisine, attend authentic Tuscan wine tastings, and visit ancient Etruscan ruins. Our magical Tuscany cycling adventure ends in Cortona, a hill-top town gifted with spectacular views, which was brought to life in the acclaimed motion picture, “Under the Tuscan Sun!”
A myriad of treasures awaits you on this unforgettable Tuscany cycling tour.
You’ll be immersed in the history, heritage, and mystique of this alluring land, as our Tuscany bike tour winds through the region’s exquisite landscapes. Our biking route takes in medieval Loro Ciuffenna, with its elegant gorge-spanning bridge, the fortified village of Lucignano, and the Renaissance gem that is Arezzo. Known for its many artistic treasures, Arrezzo was the beautiful backdrop for the Oscar Winning Film “La Vita e’ Bella” (Life is Beautiful).
Crossing the border into Umbria, the “Green Heart of Italy,” our cycling adventures take us to the deep-blue waters of Lago Trasimeno, where we’ll see the site of the epic clash of Hannibal and his elephants with the Roman legions. Along the way, we’ll learn how Tuscan vintners create world-class wines and explore Roman ruins, Etruscan tombs, and Renaissance palaces. Each day’s biking in Tuscany will end with wining, dining, and relaxing in specially selected luxury accommodations.
