This is our most time-tested tour: Since the 90’s many come back for it!
Spend a full day outside Florence riding through little towns and the Tuscany hills, accompanied by a friendly and experienced guide.
A family-run Chianti winery visit is included. Here you will visit the cellars and learn about wine and Extra Virgin Olive Oil making. We will then be more than ready for a Tuscan traditional lunch paired with a tasting of olive oil and wine!
With the departure right from our office in Florence, this is what we like to call our “green” tour, with no carbon footprint – just you, your bike, and your guide.
You will get the opportunity to witness the Tuscany atmosphere, as we pass by some local towns, to then immerse in the countryside.
On the return trip back to Florence, we stop at a local family-run Chianti winery to see where their wine is made and stored, and take a look at their personal stash of olive oil. Your guide will talk about the way wine is produced in Chianti and the secrets of extra virgin olive oil.
The return ride to Florence is mostly downhill, passing through a forest with castles and small wine producers.
You will be back at our office no later than 4.30 pm, ready for an aperitivo or a gelato, we’ll point you the right way for a special one!
