With van transfer from your hotel in Florence, we will drive to the quaint village of San Donato for a visit. At this point, you can decide whether you prefer reaching Castellina in Chianti by van or by bike, depending on your skill level.
Your eyes will be dazzled by the gorgeous images flowing before you: the sweet slopes, lines and colors of Tuscany, the medieval villages, the castles, people working the land. Your nose will be delighted by the many different Mediterranean scents coming from the vineyards, olive groves, woods, and earth.
Once in Castellina, we will make a brief stop to visit the pretty medieval village, then the biking continues.
Coasting along a gentle, scenic road, we will reach the small village of Fonterutoli. The extraordinary Fonterutoli estate in Chianti Classico has been owned by the same noble family since 1435 and has been passed down through 24 generations. We will stop there for a delicious wine tasting!
After this wonderfully satisfying tasting experience, we will continue our bike ride and plunge into the stunning Tuscan landscape, skirting cultivated fields bordered by cypress trees. In the magic backdrop of the countryside, you will find many perfect spots to take a photo and a stroll among rows of lush Sangiovese grapevines.
Before facing the final easy climb towards our final destination, Siena, the Gothic city, a good cappuccino with a slice of home-made cake at “the best local trattoria” is a welcome treat!
At the end of our last challenge, in order to avoid the busy traffic, our van will drive you directly to the ancient, medieval walls.
Your search for a place to recharge your batteries has just ended. Welcome to Siena!
It’s time to explore this enchanting and classic Tuscan city, filled with beautiful Gothic architecture.
With its narrow streets, steep alleys, a stunning Gothic cathedral, and a bounty of early Renaissance art, Siena is often described as Italy’s best-preserved medieval city. For two days a year, it’s the site of Italy’s most famous horse race: Il Palio di Siena. We will be happy to provide you with a city map as well as our best recommendations for your easy lunch&italian gelato! There are several delicious and affordable local options to choose from.
You won’t need to save energy to get back to Florence. After such a full day of excitement and emotions, our van is ready to provide you with a relaxing afternoon drive back to Florence.
