Siena, Chianti, Florence Self-guided Cycling Tour 

The landscape of Tuscany is one of the most beautiful and evocative in Europe, with rolling hills laced with verdant vineyards and cypress trees lining the roads. You’ll pedal from one incredible view to the next, getting to know the lands of many great artists of the past, such as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo. You’ll have the chance to visit the superb medieval town of Siena, as well as to admire Florence, the cradle of Renaissance. Last but not least, in this tour you’ll discover also picturesque villages where you’ll be tempted by the excellent Tuscan cuisine.

Tour character: Level 3

Heavy, with sloping landscapes dotted with steeper inclines, but not overwhelmingly so. The daily distance is about 40km. Though the daily routes are not too long, they can be strenuous, so we do recommend being in reasonably food physical condition for this tour.
