Join us for a unique tour exploring the beautiful Chianti region of Tuscany by electric bike. These bikes make biking in Tuscany, one of the world’s most famous cycling areas, accessible to all!

Meet your authorized English speaking guide and fellow travelers for this small group bike tour at the Siena Train station at 9:00am (in front of the pharmacy). Before heading off, familiarize yourself with the E-Bikes and equipment. Easily set the difficulty of your ride and decide whether you would like the bike to do most of the work, or do the workout yourself. The silent electric motor, allows you to enjoy the smells, sounds and tranquility of the Tuscan countryside.

Finally begin your ride on quiet roads away from traffic for a 20km long cycle. During the 3 hour ride, cross neat rows of vineyards, pretty olive groves, dense and shaded forests, and sleepy villages. Be surprised here and there by modern art installations along the way, adding a touch of modernity to an otherwise very traditional and unchanged Chianti landscape. Throughout the morning, stop frequently to take in the views, breathe the clean countryside air and stretch your legs.

Before sitting down to a traditional Tuscan lunch, stop to visit a beautifully restored ex-monastery dating back to the XV century. Enjoy a leisurely walk in the cloisters, see the neat Renaissance gardens and admire the stunningly beautifully chapel rich in frescoes, known as the 'little Sistine'. Jump on your bikes one last time for a short ride to a family-run winery where you will tour the estate's cellars and vineyards and learn about the wine making process. Sit down to a delicious tasting of the farms' Chianti Classico wines and olive oil accompanied by platters of tasty local products. After lunch, return to the Siena train station after an intensive day experiencing some of the best that Tuscany has to offer.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS Find answers to the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
  • How many days are enough for Europe?

    You can spend a couple of months exploring Europe and still feel like you have not seen everything. Generally speaking, a two-week Europe trip should be just enough if you are looking to cover its major highlights. However, if you want a comprehensive travel experience within this duration, it is better that you focus on a region or a few countries rather than traveling all over the continent. 

    Choose a single country or schedule your trip around a handful of cities in different countries. While larger European cities may require three to four days to explore, you can get around smaller destinations in a day or two. Planning your trip around a particular region will cut down your travel time and save your time in transit.

  • What is the best month to visit Italy?

    The best time to visit Italy is between the months of April and June as well as from September to October. The weather on the Italian Peninsula during these months is ideal for going out on sightseeing tours, hiking, and exploring treasures stretching from Palermo to the lagoons of Venice. Traveling to Italy during July and August is avoided by many because of the summer heat and crowds, while the period between November to March sees the fewest visitors in big cities. However, these months coincide with the prime skiing season in the Alps, while southern parts of Italy, such as Sicily, remain relatively warm during this time of year. Find more information here.

  • Will I need a visa to travel to Italy?

    Citizens of the US, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK, and Japan can visit Italy (along with the free-movement zone of Schengen in the EU) for 90 days as tourists without requiring a visa.

  • Is an Italian holiday expensive? How do the ATMs work in Italy? What is the currency of Italy?

    While it is true that Italy is not an expensive destination, it is not exactly a budget destination either. Your vacation funds will go much further in Italy than they would in Scandinavia or the UK, with daily budgets of around USD150 per person sufficient for mid-range travelers who do not want to miss out on any of the country’s most important sights. Most banks have ATM machines (called bancomat) with English language options. All you need to do is look for the US or the UK flag. Plus, most machines accept both Visa and Mastercard. Please keep in mind that you will withdraw your cash in euros, with EUR1 slightly more than its USD equivalent.

  • Is English spoken in Italy? Should I learn communication phrases in Italy?

    It was not too long ago that finding anyone who spoke English in Italy was an ordeal. This is not the case anymore. Most people in the cities have some understanding of the language, although numbers decrease as you move further into the countryside. Therefore, it is better to know a few basic phrases in Italian (per favore means please and grazi means thank you) if you are heading for the country. This will not only make your stay in the country easier but also ensure that you show respect to the people and their culture.
