Itinerary & Tour Description

After picking you up in Florence, we move by our air-conditioned van to the starting point of your ride.
Passing through some of the most famous, charming Tuscan towns, we stop in Radda in Chianti, the ancient walled medieval village. Before beginning your adventure, you have time to visit the old village and immerse yourself in the rural atmosphere, so typical to this unique part of the world.
Once on the road, the soft rolling hills will capture your hearts and you’ll realize that cycling is truly the best way to soak up the Tuscan nature.
Here, where life is slow, you can lose yourself in the same breathtaking views that have belonged to this countryside for centuries.
A land with this spirit won’t let you conquer it too easily but all you need is a little bit of effort to enjoy pedaling along the flowing back roads following in the footsteps of Baron Bettino Ricasoli!
We’ll visit his castle and the Renaissance gardens that dominate the southern part of the Chianti Classico countryside. The gardens are stunning with their typical, geometric shaped bushes and English woods overlooking an impressive panorama of the Chianti area with Siena in the background.
And now it’s time for a bit of rest!
Your well-deserved lunch (payable locally) will complete this sensational morning and we will be glad to suggest you some of the best trattorias where you can enjoy the genuine taste of Tuscany.
The emotions don’t stop here, though. We can’t leave the castle without tasting the most historic Chianti Classico wines. The tasting room will welcome us with a warm and sophisticated ambiance.
Ready for the grand finale, you’ll hop back on the bikes and retrace the beautiful road that brought us to the castle, this time heading downhill, leading us straight to Gaiole in Chianti, the last town of our ride.
We’ll have time for a satisfying espresso before making our way back to Florence by van.
