San Gimignano to Siena bike tour | bikeinflorence.com

Our San Gimignano to Siena bike tour starts with your pick-up downtown Florence. With our air-conditioned shuttle, we head first to San Gimignano for an early morning visit (before the throngs of tourists arrive) to this UNESCO World Heritage Site with free time to walk around the city walls.

The pedaling starts downhill from here, where we will follow some of the most beautiful, and absolutely tranquil, back-roads. We start off using panoramic pieces of the famous “Via Francigena” which, in the Middle Ages, was used by pilgrims making their trek towards Rome for a blessing from the Pope.

You too get to be a “Pilgrim for a day“, following their footsteps, and in many cases gaze upon the same untouched landscape that they too saw as they moved further south. The typical white roads will guide us through vineyards, and sunflower fields with a few surprises along the way.

Biking at your own pace following gentle, soft rolling hills famous for their beauty, we will head to Monteriggioni. A stop to this village is mandatory! The castle, almost untouched by time, the church, the square walls, and the small specialty shops are just asking for photos!

After this second fascinating Medieval break we will head for  Siena on a gently curving road, through the typical Tuscan landscape with churches, castles, villages and beautiful fields.

We will deliver you to the ancient walls of Siena – another UNESCO World Heritage Site – in the early afternoon, with just the right amount of time for a light lunch. Spend your free time strolling the cobbled stone roads and amazing architecture in the city of the Palio and — why not? — have a delicious gelato downtown! Elena and Piero will provide you with a city map as well as the best recommendations for lunch: there are several delicious and affordable local options to choose from.

The San Gimignano to Siena bike tour concludes with us taking you back into Florence with our air-conditioned shuttle. You can just sit back and relax, while we navigate the road back to the city, where you will have time to tour the historic center or grab (another) gelato before dinner.
