Pisa to Florence Slow Paced Cycling in Tuscany

If you are looking for an introductory cycle tour through Tuscany, then you are on the right track between Pisa and Florence. The route includes all the interesting places in Tuscany while not being too demanding. You have enough time to visit Pisa, Lucca Vinci and Florence. So it is easy to succumb to the charms to Italy.

Details of the tour:

The route from the beautiful city of Pisa in the west, to Florence in the centre of Tuscany will take you seven enjoyable days. In betwee? Lots of sights, scents, taste sensations and memories to be made. For example, the romantic spa town of Montecatini, a class of fine wine or the typical Tuscan scent of olive trees. You can look forward to 210km of cycling, which you will remember fondly for a very long time.

  • Tuscany, the easy way: Always hilly – that’s how you know Tuscany. This route will surprise you however, because it will cause no problems to hobby cyclists.

  • Day 1

    Arrival in Pisa

    In the evening welcome briefing and bike fitting. We recommend an initial visit of the magnificent old part of town that day.

  • Day 2

    Pisa – Lucca approx. 35km

    From the square Piazza dei Miracoli, home of the ‚leaning tower’, you cycle on lovely paths towards lake Massaciuccoli. Here, you can enjoy the amazing views from a panorama road onto the lake and the Tyrrhenian Sea. Past countless olive groves until the river Serchio and continue along its cycle path to the centre of Lucca. You will not only enjoy the historic old part of town but also a circular cycle ride on top of the city wall.

  • Day 3

    Lucca – Montecatini Terme approx. 40km

    Several Baroque villas are situated directly along the cycle route to Montecarlo. Located on top of a hill, this village is well-known for its excellent white wine – there is only a limited number of places in Tuscany for this grape to grow in such outstanding quality. Sampling a glass in one of the charming Enotecas is a must. Finally, you cycle through the Valdinievole valley where you will reach the famous spa resort of Montecatini.

  • Day 4

    Day Trip to Vinci approx. 55km

    Cycle through olive groves on small paths from Montecatini to Vinci, Leonardo’s birthplace. Most impressive is the da Vinci museum capturing the genius of all his inventions. To get back to your accommodation, you cycle past rolling hills across the pretty landscape of Montalbano. A ride on the funicular to Montecatini Alto could be the crowning glory of this day.

  • Day 5

    Montecatini Terme – Pistoia approx. 30km

    Soon after heading off the biggest and most challenging ascent for the week. As reward afterwards, you get a short break in the small Medieal village of Montevettolini as well as fantastic views on to the Arno valley during the rest of the tour. Then onwards to Pistoia, which is not so well-known by tourists and called 'Little Florence’. With its charming squares and impressive churches one is indeed reminded of the neighbouring town Florence.

  • Day 6

    Pistoia – Florence approx. 50km

    Today’s tour takes you through the shallow alluvial land between the rivers Arno and Ombrone. This fertile plain is the basis for the amazing plant variety with its especially well-known garden centres. In Poggio a Caiano, directly on your route you find one of the famous Medici villas. Onwards past cypressus alamedas to the Arno riverbanks and finally along the cycle path all the way to the Ponte Vecchio bridge in Florence.

  • Day 7
