Slow tour, very intense experience
The magnificent Tuscan hills will keep your body busy and as if by magic, you will get fresh energy for your body and your mind. You will enjoy every moment surrounded by the landscape of this magical region, which is always able to surprise.
Around you … crossing small medieval villages, where the time seems to go slower … and beautiful historical monuments, buildings, and churches are hidden here and there. Narrow streets where it is still possible to smell the aromas coming out of the kitchens.
Your mind and your eyes will be busy contemplating breathtaking sceneries; your “front-row seat” with a view of the splendid landscape that constantly changes at your speed is a privileged and exclusive point of view. The way in which history and nature have worked together creating this harmonious and ever-changing Tuscan scenario will enchant you.
Around us, the Tuscan colors that spontaneously follow the cycle of nature. From the green of the spring countryside sprinkled with the red hair of poppies to the summer yellow of sunflowers and ripe wheat, the swirling purple, red and orange mix of autumn and its vineyards. Even in winter, the colors of Tuscany will amaze you. The beauty of the medieval villages and Renaissance villas, that emerge from the smoky air of the fog and from the branches of the trees no longer laden with leaves, give magical emotions.
The prize, the peaceful atmosphere
Like the colors, even the flavors of Tuscan cuisine follow the rhythm of the seasons.
During these Tuscany cycling tours, you will find the catharsis of the right effort through which you will “purify” yourself and prepare your body to be worthy of receiving the prize of your deeds by bike. A prize made up of places that are as beautiful as they are hospitable, wines made from ancient nectars such as Chianti, banquets rich in healthy and tasty foods of our best Tuscan tradition.
Cycling, in the peaceful atmosphere of the ancient Tuscan slopes, sharing thoughts with your companions is a real pleasure, but also relaxing. It is essential to share impressions, joke but also be inspired by others. You will chat during convivial tables or during a climbing effort or, at the end of the day, while relaxing in the warm natural springs.
It’s a pampered Tuscany adventure!
Although the accommodations are wonderful, such as the historic buildings in the center of medieval cities of Siena, Lucca or San Gimignano, or a charming farmhouse immersed in the Tuscan countryside, our approach is minimalist, simple and relaxed. During our multi-day Tuscany cycling tour, every day we will ride towards the next destination and everyone needs to carry things on their bikes.
The sense of freedom and accomplishment of this approach is truly unexpected.
