Tuscany Cycling Holidays

On our Tuscany cycling tour, we'll spend plenty of time in rural Tuscany, exploring Chianti, the Val D'Orcia and Le Crete.  But we'll also visit spectacular medieval towns and villages like Siena, Montalcino and San Gimignano.

The food in Tuscany is wonderful, lots of herbs, local olive oil and local specialities.  The wines are delicious and fascinating, and we'll explore wines from Chianti, the Brunellos of Montalcino and the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano.

Tuscany also boasts beautiful Abbeys and Duomos and evokes the atmosphere of Dante, Machiavelli and Renaisaance Italy.  Some of the highlights of the cycling holiday include the frescos at the Abbay of Monte Olivetto, and Montepulciano, the highest of all the Tuscan hilltop Cities.

Tour dates

Our guide led us expertly on each day's ride of 30 miles or so, selecting quiet roads and tasty lunch stops and, at the end of every afternoon, a comfortable hotel with a menu to do justice to the region's rich gastronomy. He carried a repair outfit, a first aid kit and a sense of humour, which coped with almost every eventuality.
