The tour "Tuscany: Cycle Siena & Chianti" starts from San Quirico d'Orcia and ends in Florence. It is a bicycle trip that takes 8 days taking you through San Gimignano, Siena, Pienza and 3 other destinations in Italy. "Tuscany: Cycle Siena & Chianti" is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation in hotels, meals and others.

The Tuscan landscape is one of the most evocative and romantic in Europe, with cypress tree-lined roads, olive groves, vineyards, ancient hilltop towns and, of course, classic Renaissance cities. Our group cycling tour is carefully planned to take in the best of Tuscany without feeling rushed: part of the joy of the Italian lifestyle is sitting and watching the world go by with a glass of wine in your hand. We ride through historically diverse areas of Tuscany, such as the Chianti hills and beautiful countryside around Montepulciano. Riding north, we discover a wonderfully scenic region, home to some of Tuscany’s most beautiful towns and villages. We then enjoy the magnificent Piazza del Campo in Siena before biking past the towers of San Gimignano and on to our final destination in Florence. Following country roads wherever possible, we mix point-to-point and circular rides to make a perfect cycling tour of this region.
