Pisa to Siena along Via Francigena Self-guided Cycling Tour

From Pisa, with its imposing tower and its magnificent baptistery, you start cycling along the so called Via Francigena, an ancient road and pilgrim route for all those people who wished to visit the holy city of Rome. Following the steps of the medieval pilgrims, you will go through extraordinary places in the middle of rolling hills, scattered with castles, fortresses and abbeys. After crossing San Miniato, a place much beloved by emperors and popes, located in the Arno Valley, you will finally reach Siena, with its wonderful square.

  • Day 1

    Pisa.

    Individual arrival. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1987, Pisa is one of Italy’s top university towns and boasts a vibrant and colourful cultural scene, along with a host of other historical sites.

  • Day 2

    Pisa – Lucca (30/45 km).

    Cycling through Pisa’s countryside, you join the Serchio river as far as Lucca. Today’s stage can be extended by taking the alternative route, skirting Lake Massaciuccoli and taking in the Chiarone Nature Reserve.

  • Day 3

    Lucca – San Miniato (50 km).

    Starting from Piazza An teatro in the heart of Lucca, we join the Via Francigena proper. Along the route, the ancient abbey of Pozzeveri, south of the Serchio, rises along a stretch which was notori- ously challenging for the early pilgrim, its dense forest swamped in marshland.

  • Day 4

    San Miniato – Colle Val d’Elsa (55/60 km).

    Continue along the valleys and banks of the Elsa river, past the castles that once ensured safe passage to the pilgrims of the Via Francigena. Shortly before reaching Colle Val d’Elsa, you look forward to the appearance in the distance of San Gimignano, the medieval burgh celebrated for its timeless skyline of towers.

  • Day 5

    Colle Val d’Elsa – Siena (30 km)

    Head for Montagnola Senese, home to the historic clifftop castle of Monteriggioni, which once defended the Republic of Siena. The heart of Siena, Piazza del Campo, is a short ride away now. Here the historic bareback horse race takes place twice a year: the Palio di Siena.

  • Day 6

    Siena – Monteroni d’Arbia – Siena (45 km).

    The Via Francigena continues south following the ancient Cassian Way – the Roman route that once linked Florence and Rome – traversing one of the most picturesque stretches of Tuscany: the Crete Senesi. From Monteroni d’Alba you can return to Siena by bus or train, or simply cycle on and up through the gentle “Clays”, their moonscape lined with cypress trees and dotted with solitary shepherds’ huts.

  • Day 7

    Siena.

    After breakfast, end of tour.

    Due to organisational reasons, weather conditions or provisions issued by local authorities, the itinerary may be subject to some changes before and/or during the holiday. Along the way you may find temporary deviations (for example road works) which cannot be foreseen: in this case each rider can decide autonomously how to deal with these stretches.
