Chianti e-bike tour – Info

This bike tour is a mix of bike adventure, art&history, and food. It has been designed to be safe and to allow you to enjoy an unforgettable experience. The e-bike tour does not only provide a workout; it’s an effective way to get around and to discover Chianti off the beaten tracks.

The itinerary is away from the traffic, on country roads. 50% unpaved, it connects Tuscan gems like Greve in Chianti,  Montefioralle and Badia a Passignano.

The starting point of the Chianti e-bike tour is Greve in Chianti, after a brief visit to the picturesque main square, we will take an uphill road that will lead us to Montefioralle. Interestingly a house in the main street of Montefioralle belonged to the family of Amerigo Vespucci. The door is identified by the Vespa (wasp) and by the V of the Vespucci family.

After a few kilometers of white roa0d, we will get to Badia a Passignano, a historic Benedictine abbey built in 890. This place is a “must see”. If you are keen to learn more on this, please take a look at my post specifically dedicated to this place. I really love it; every single corner is rich in history and the monks that are still living there are like friends!

The bike tour is a loop; on our way back to Greve in Chianti, we stop to Pieve di San Cresci to visit the residence for artists. This is a unique reality, in which the artists/guests who come from all over the world stop to work on their projects, taking full advantage of the rich cultural background offered by the ancient place and its surroundings. For us, this is an extraordinary opportunity to see artists at work, willing to share their stories and the ideas they are working on. Very inspiring.
