Tuscany Bike Tours

Exploring Tuscany by bike

Italy’s central region of Tuscany, neighbour to Umbria, has some of the most stunning scenery for you to explore on your cycling holiday. You will find roads lined with iconic evergreen cypress, rolling hills of wheat and hectares of vines. Medieval hilltop villages, like Montalcino and San Quirico d’Orcia, invite you up to explore their well-preserved battlements. Let our newly upgraded e-bikes take the strain here, leaving you fresh to enjoy the stunning view before browsing cobbled streets where trattorias vie with gelaterias to satisfy your appetite and shops sell Tuscan olive oil, truffles, Cantuccini biscotti and lots of wine.

Our routes allow you to experience sections of Strade Bianche: chalky, gravel roads that criss-cross the countryside. You will also travel along a section of the ancient pilgrim’s route, the Via Francigena, as it winds its way down the backbone of Italy to Rome.

Food & Wine

The Tuscan cuisine is hearty! Think wild boar ragout for your pasta and roasted guineafowl for seconds or vegetarian options such as a rich Chickpea and chard stew or Panzanella salad, where ciabatta bread is infused with basil and sun-ripened tomatoes. Wine is, of course, a big part of Tuscan life with the Sangiovese grape being dominant. The most famous wines are Brunello di Montalcino and Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.  Call our cycle experts about wine-tasting add-ons.

Historical Sights

Siena is the ultimate hilltop city, the wall intact with ancient entrance gates. The Piazza del Campo, in the shape of a shell, is the city’s iconic medieval square, housing the Palazzo del Capitano del Popolo and the impressive, red brick tower, Torre del Mangia. This is the location of the biannual horse race called the Palio and is also home to numerous upmarket cafes.
