Rich traditions and vineyards

Rich traditions and vineyards

Tuscany bike tours.

Tuscany is known for its beautiful landscapes, artistic history and cultural influence. The cultural heritage, which predates the Middle Ages, is expressed in Tuscany’s numerous churches, palaces, galleries, museums, and villages.

The mild climate, lush vineyards, and welcoming warmth of the Tuscan people are just a few reasons cyclists love to take their holidays in Tuscany. Cycling routes in Tuscany are diverse and are good for cyclists of most levels—from healthy novices to advanced riding.

The routes traverse plains along the rivers and coasts, rolling countryside and steep terrain in the mountains. The best time to plan your visit is from March to June and from September to October.

Change of pace on Florence stay. We enjoyed this trip as one day of our stay in Florence for our honeymoon. After days of sleeping in, walking around sight seeing and eating, we needed a change of pace and some real exercise. It was great to get out into the countryside and fresh air. Even the short and sudden rain storm was a fun part of the ride. And if you aren't looking to push yourself at all, then you can skip the hill climb and ride the van to the top. About half the group opted for this. Lunch was delicious and the castle tour with wine and olive oil tastings were the icing on the cake. I highly recommend this.

Highlight of my trip. What an amazing experience and exceeded my expectations hugely. Started off with a castle tour where our guide Alex/ Alessio told us about the history of wine production. Followed by wine tasting. I found this very interesting and you can really tell that Alessio knows his stuff. This was followed by a challenging but incredibly enjoyable bike ride around 25km. We managed to stop at the best view point to take pictures. I think what really made the difference was our tour guide. Alex went out of his way to reccomend the best places to eat in Florence and was very hospitable. This definitely the highlight of my trip I’m Florence.

Friendly staff, love adventure. Had a great day biking around the Tuscan hills and visiting a castle with great wine and olive oil tasting. The staff were very friendly and mindful of safety measures on the road. Highly recommend this tour

Mario was a great host! A brilliant was to see the city :-) I was the only person on the bike tour, but Mario was a great host and tour guide! We did the city bike tour through the streets of Florence and he was very knowledgeable and able to answer all my questions. I'm so glad the tour went ahead even though it was just me! A brilliant way to see the city. I was also able to reschedule to a different day at short notice :-) Thank you, Mario!

Wonderful Bike Tour in the Hills of Chianti. This tour was absolutely amazing. In the morning hours we did a nice bike tour along the streets of the Chianti region. The lunch was very tasty as well as the wine later in the castle. Our guide Alessio told us about the history of wine production and was very entertaining and fun to spend time with. If you want to experience the countryside of Toscana and the wine, we can definitely recommend this tour! Grazie mille Alessio, alla prossima Sven and Alessia.

Put the fun between your legs! I really enjoy wine and even more so, I love cycling! What better place to do so, than Tuscany! And what better group to do it with than Tuscany Bike Tours! Not only are the guides knowledgeable and safe but fun! All the guides brought their own unique and enjoyable personality to the day. They were keen to provide additional information about the area and didn’t hesitate to answer questions. Try it and make sure you do the hill climb! Wine will fuel you for it! Thanks for the fun day to all the boys at Tuscany Bike Tours! And a shout out to Tom for leading the peloton! Grazie! Miranda from Canada!

An absolute MUST! We had an absolute blast riding Vespas through Tuscany! The moment we walked in the door we were met with the guides' charming and witty personalities. The scenery was absolutely breathtaking, exactly how you would imagine it. I was nervous about driving a Vespa for the first time, but it was incredibly easy and the guides make sure you know what you are doing before they put you out on the road. The castle was stunning! There were only two of us on the Vespa Tour that day, so we had Angus all to ourselves. He was so fun and super knowledgeable. We loved his British accent:) Jacopo was our driver and guide through the castle. He was amazing and so fun! We enjoyed hearing him sing along to "nostalgic" American music and teaching him American slang (Bye, Felicia!) He was such a good sport! Definitely one of, if not the highlight of our 2 weeks in Italy.

Best day of our entire Italy trip! Book this Vespa tour!!! My husband and I will never forget the experience. We had a blast and we both agree it was the absolute highlight of our entire Italy vacation! The guides are fantastic... knowledgeable and funny! They also made me feel extremely comfortable and safe on the Vespa. I had never been on one before (or on anything similar) but they teach you how to ride it in a parking lot before hitting the road. I caught on quickly! The day was just such a blast. The castle/winery tour complete with a wine and olive oil tasting was wonderful. Lunch was delicious. And the ride itself through the Tuscan countryside was something I’ll never forget. Will recommend to anyone I know traveling to Italy!

Can't say enough. The vespa tour was the highlight of our trip. The guides were both knowledgeable, friendly and easy to talk to. The castle and the scenery were awesome. They quickly rearranged the tour due to impending rain. Lunch h was incredible. Best pasta I had in our entire stay. Highly recommend this tour, thanks to our guides and their attention to our safety.

WHAT OUR GUESTS SAY

One of the great experiences I’ve had…ever!

My wife and I did the “Downhill to Florence” bike tour this week with Piero (riding along along in van) and Elena leading the bike pack. Start 2,600 feet up in a remote monastery and ride 22 miles down into the center of Florence through back roads and trails with just the most amazing vistas

Fantastic Family bike tour

I have nothing but good things to say about Bike Florence&Tuscany. Four of us did a day trip ride San Gimignano to Siena on November the 2nd. Piero treated us as a private group so we could enjoy the entire day as a family trip! Elena led the group and the ride was fabulous. The roads and scenery were beautiful, colors were typical of Tuscan fall and traffic was light. We always felt safe and Piero did a good job supporting us with the van. The day starts with a good hour for visiting San Gimignano, the so-called Medieval Manhattan. The first part of the ride ends in Monteriggioni, the small, well-preserved medieval village we met biking towards Siena. After a brief stop to see the village the ride continued, ending near Siena. The guys took us to the city entrance by van to avoid us having to face the busy traffic and.. for a little rest before the long walk around Siena. The whole BF&T team was extremely accommodating, kind, and knowledgable. The bikes themselves were top notch. I would recommend Bike Florence&Tuscany to everyone: this was one of the highlights of our whole Italian vacation for my family, who had come to Florence to see me after a long absence! Thank you Piero&Elena for making all this come true!

San Gimignano to Siena Exceeded our expectations!

It all started with a convenient pick up by our fabulous hosts Elena and Piero in Florence. From there we had a pleasant (and informative) drive to the historic town of San Gimignano — amazing! Our family of four then enjoyed a bike ride though the Tuscan countryside. We rode at our own pace, stopping for photographs and snacks. The riding was all done on quiet (almost no traffic), picturesque country roads. After completing our ride, we were treated to a wine and cheese tasting in the walled village of Monteriggioni. From there we were driven a short distance to Siena (in the super comfortable support van) where we were able to spend some time exploring this incredibly beautiful Tuscan city. Things to note: We completed our tour in December and despite it being winter, it was very pleasant. Thanks again to Elena and Piero for a memorable experience. Craig, Myf and Family

Best day of our holiday, the only way to see Florence!

We were 2 families (4adults and 5 kids). Piero and Elena (our guides) were perfect! They prepared everything perfectly in advance, created a custom route for family with kids – adjusted the trip based on all of our ability, and overall created a perfect day. We were able to see all of the major sites of Florence without the feeling of fighting crowds, waiting in line…..

Great tour and excellent way to see Tuscany

Our bike tour from San Gimignano to Siena, led by Elena and Simone was over way to quickly. 6 of us, ranging from 75 to 17 years of age, enjoyed a wonderful day with beautiful sights, great gelato and wine tasting. Our guides were very informative and very sensitive and accommodated everyone’s abilities. They were very friendly and professional too. We loved it all! Thank you for a fun-filled day! Linda

Relaxing break from city sight seeing

I would highly recommend this experience. You not only get to see the beautiful countryside, but you really get a real taste of the Chianti region of Tuscany.

Even better the second time! – Bike Florence & Tuscany

Last year, I did the San Gimignano to Siena bike tour with the beautiful and amazing Elena. I had such a wonderful time that i immediately planned to do it again this year, on my birthday, as I couldn’t think of a better way to spend the day than on this wonderful trip! Well let me just say it was even better than I remembered! Not only is the scenery absolutely breathtaking, and the towns visited (San Gimignano, Monteriggioni and Siena) absolutely beautiful, but the hospitality, generosity and kindness of your hosts, Elena and Piero, are nothing short of unforgettable. I had not mentioned to Elena that it was my birthday, however she realised and so planned a few extra surprises for me – one, that the bike tour would be just myself and my sister (amazing considering it was June, high season!) and secondly, organising an amazing wine tasting for us in Monteriggioni (not normally an inclusion in this ride)!! This was such a wonderful and completely unexpected surprise to us, and I was so touched at her caring and generosity! I was completely blown away and really couldn’t thank her enough. Needless to say, I had an absolutely wonderful and unforgettable birthday thanks to Elena. The scenery on this ride is unbeatable, and you have ample time in each town to explore, buy souvenirs and have a coffee or gelato (or lunch) as you wish. Elena provides maps and great information on what to see and do in each place, and also plenty of water and snacks as you bike. This is just such a great way to see and experience Tuscany with locals who love Tuscany and love to bike!! The bikes themselves are fabulous – super light but sturdy – and with full van support there is no issue if you become tired. As should be obvious, I absolutely love this company and am planning on many more rides with them in the future. Thank you so much Elena and Piero for yet more amazing and unforgettable memories, and for the best birthday ever! Rosalinde

A perfect day in Tuscany

Buona sera Piero, I just wanted to thank you for a “perfect” day in Tuscany. The whole family enjoyed the biking and wine tasting immensely! The choices of villages, roads, wineries and the fantastic restaurant in Monterrigioni could not have been better. You and your staff, Elena and Simone made everyone feel at ease which enhanced the experience even more…

An amazing day and memories for a lifetime!

My family and I just returned from our 2 week Italy holiday and can say that our day spent with Piero, Elena and Costa was by far our most amazing experience! My review starts at the beginning…

Good food, good wine & all whilst cycling through the amazing scenery of Tuscany!

We were really looking forward to our ride out into the Tuscan hills having never been to the area and spending much of the later part of our trip in cities, and we were far from disappointed! Piero & Elena were warm & welcoming, kept in regular contact upto the day and ensured we knew exactly where we going and what we were doing on the morning of our ride. We got to see the wonderful countryside of the Chianti region, on a gentle September Sunday whilst drinking fabulous wine, eating wonderful local produce & meeting new people…….what more could you ask for? It was defiantly one of the highlights of our Italian adventure and would recommend it.

Great way to see parts of Floreonce and Tuscany that you would never see otherwise!

We went on 2 trips with Piero (second with his wife Elena). 1. Day trip of Florence. Saw Florence in whole new light- allowed us to explore Florence from 1 end to the other, avoiding the usual “tourist” areas (Duomo, Palazzo Signoria, Ponte Vecchio) that we had already done on foot. Only the 3 of us, yet Piero still did tour, incredibly infromative, adapted tour to our needs (stopped when we felt need), great lunch at hidden restaurant below Piazzale Michelangelo. Had a geat time! 2. Tuscany wine tour. This time did with son as well (initally not very enthusiastic, but even he admitted worth every penny). I am a regular cyclist, but others in group (total 6) “weekend warriors”. Tuscany can be challenging cycling, but Piero selcted route that everyone in group could do (picked us up at local drop off, since we were stayig in San Gimignano), drove to start of route, mostly downhill thereafter- abslolutely incredible countryside. Wine tasting incredible, espcially at Monteriggioni where we had wine tasting with matched food for lunch- informative. Shown how diferent local wines complement diferent foods. My wife (not usually a wine lover) “never going to drink cheap wine again”. Again Piero + Elena adapted tour to our needs. Again had great time- worth every Euro! Only downside- being from Canada, not practical to ship a case home!

Downhill to Florence – A day to remember!

Our family of 4 enjoyed a great ride through the Tuscan country side, into the beautiful city of Florence. The pick up and drop off service was great; the bikes were in top shape and rode easily. Our guide, Elena, was helpful, informative and ever so friendly. We had a great lunch in Fiesole, stopped for many pictures of the countryside and city below, and just had a wonderful time. It was truly a day to remember. Thank you Bike Florence&Tuscany! When we come back, we will look you up again!

Chianti bike tasting tour – Bike Florence&Tuscany

My husband and I choose the Chianti bike tasting ride October 3rd 2017…I must say it was hard to choose, they all look so good! We were delighted to have Elena as our host and guide. She is BEYOND engaging, so informative and the best guide and expert on Tuscan towns and Italy. The day was gorgeous and the stops delightful. There were just the two of us on the ride and we felt so special. I would highly recommend that you use this company…Italians running an Italian company that are expert riders themselves. We will definitely ride with them next year, can’t wait!

It is more than a bike tour, it’s an experience for all involved!

Best biking tour in Italy. Piero and his team took us on 2 tours one in Chianti and one in Valdarno region. We had the best time ever and will never forget. It is more than a bike tour it’s an experience for all involved! The support team and van help all levels of bikers to enjoy. Run don’t walk to this experience! Brian and Maree

Thank you Piero and Elena, great trip

We booked for the “Downhill to Florence”. It was late in the season, November, so many others had closed their bike tours. We lucked out and found Pierro and Elana. Others have described the trip really well.. It is a well thought out perfect itinerary. My husband and I had a great…

Most amazing day!!

My fiancé and I did the bike tour for wine lovers! It was gorgeous!! Piero and Elena were very fun and helpful and focused on what they could do so we would have a great time.

Biking experience in Florence

If you are remotely fit and want a unique experience biking around the unconventional Florence (or an escape day from crowds), then I strongly recommend the Bike in Florence&Tuscany city tour…

One of the top highlights of our Tuscany trip!

My husband and I are active and were looking for a more adventurous way to explore Tuscany. Bike Florence was the perfect fit to satisfy my hubby (a cyclist) and me a wino. It was the best of both worlds! We selected the Chianti bike tasting and enjoyed a half day of wonderful cycling in the beautiful Tuscan hillside. I cannot say enough about Piero and Eleana and their wonderful hospitality. From booking the tour to helping with directions and selecting excellent wineries, we felt extremely taken care of. Both were gracious, witty and focused on safety. We had an amazing experience that we’ll treasure for a long time to come. If you’re looking to explore Tuscany on bike, you simply can’t go wrong with Bike Florence! Thanks again Piero and Elena for taking such good care of us. We’ll spread the word about our great experience to all our Texas friends! Grazie mille!

Excellent tour of beautiful Tuscany!

My partner and I did the full day San Gimignano to Siena bike tour yesterday with Elena and we had a great day! Elena picked us up near to where we are staying and she was wonderfully friendly and chatty, pointing out interesting things to us as we drove to pick up the other couple doing the tour. We drove to San Gimignano and reached it before the crowds – it is a beautiful old town on top of a hill with amazing views of the surrounding area. Elena also recommended a delicious gelato place to us ? We then drove a little further and started the bike tour. The bikes were light weight and had lots of gear choices so riding them was very easy, there are also helmets provided. Elena drove ahead of us so we knew the route and we could catch up at our own pace. We were lucky to have beautiful sunshine and the scenery was very picturesque ? I don’t cycle a lot so I did struggle a bit with the hills – please be aware that as it is Tuscany there are some hills on the ride, but the hills are great as you get the best views on top and coming down. If the hills are too much you can always hop in the van with Elena for a while to rest ? We really enjoyed the stop at the wine tasting and the afternoon in Siena, Elena recommended a great place for lunch. We really enjoyed our day as we felt we saw some lovely little towns, amazing views and Tuscan countryside. Thank you! Read more on TripAdvisor

ITALY BIKE TOURS In Picturesque Tuscany

TOUR TUSCANY Private and Group Tours

Your Tuscany Bike Tour Specialist

If there is ONE thing you should do while on vacation Italy that is to ride through the Tuscan countryside off the beaten path and ON a bicycle!  Tuscany bike tours  are the ultimate adventure to complete any trip to this beautiful area of Italy. Just think how exciting it is to ride through Chianti vineyards and secular olive groves, viewing first hand the secrets behind the harvest and world renowned wines and olive oil.  Enjoy pedaling around medieval castles and quaint stone hamlets dating back to the middle ages, stopping along the way for a well-deserved gelato.  A perfect way to truly enjoy magnificent Tuscan countryside and spend a day in the great outdoors.

Any time of year is great for a bike tour of Tuscany , the scenery you will experience on a Tuscany bike tour is always postcard perfect.  Great master painters like Botticelli, Caravaggio, and da Vinci himself painted the Tuscan landscape, defining it as a universal icon for beauty, and a bike tour in Tuscany will give you first hand vistas of what they were seeing and transferring to canvas.  The Etruscan countryside has remained unchanged for centuries so all of the backdrops you will see are just the way they were back in the renaissance.  Stone buildings and elegant villas blend perfectly with the greenery as a prime example of how humankind and nature can live together.  The seasons speak to visitors through fragrances that change four times a year: spring welcomes abundant wisteria and fluffy lavender bushes; summer sun shines on sunflowers and sweet fruits like figs and blackberries; fall is harvest, the most festive time of year when the air is inundated with the scent of san giovese grapes – the primary berry for Chianti wine – and later on, olives; winter brings colder temperatures and well-needed rain, but it doesn’t stop Tuscany bike tours!

Cycling Tuscany

Gusto Cycling logo

Tuscany is one of Italy’s most beautiful regions, so it’s no surprise that cycling in Tuscany is  extremely popular. With its rolling hills, medieval towns, and UNESCO protected countryside, cycling holidays in Tuscany have all the ingredients needed for a unique and unforgettable cycling experience.

Tuscany boasts many fantastic cycling routes. From the rolling hills of Chianti and the Val d’Orcia, to the stunning views from some of the best hill towns in Tuscany, like Siena, Montalcino and San Gimignano, each area has something unique to offer. And that’s before we mention world famous centre of art, Florence.

In this article we speak to Marco who runs Gusto Cycling . He’s originally from Montecatini Terme in Tuscany and has been running bike tours in Tuscany for 12 years. He shares his tips for the best parts of Tuscany for cyclists, Tuscany bike tours and bike routes, information on where to stay, when to visit, bike rentals in Tuscany and more.

What’s special about cycling in Tuscany?

Biking in Tuscany has it all: great roads, nature, history, art, culture, amazing gastronomy and wine! Tuscany is, quite simply, perfect for a holiday and cycling is the best way to discover it.

Cyclists relaxing in Piazzo del Campo Siena, Tuscany

Tuscany is home to some of the most beautiful landscapes in Italy, including the Chianti wine region, the rolling hills of Val d’Orcia, and the rugged Tuscan coastline of the Maremma. The region is known for its agricultural heritage, with olive groves, vineyards, and fields of sunflowers covering the hillsides.

History and culture

Tuscany is steeped in history and culture, and a cycling trip through Tuscany allows you to explore the region’s many historic towns and landmarks, many of which have hardly changed for over 600 years. There are famous historical towns like San Gimignano, Lucca, Montalcino, Pienza, Montepulciano and the stunning Piazza Del Campo in Siena, as well as lesser-known towns and villages with many architecturally important and well-preserved build ings and museums provide a rich history to enjoy.

It’s also worth noting that in Tuscany the towns and villages are all quite close together, which means there’s lots of potential for coffee and lunch stops!

If art is your thing, one of the best things to do in Tuscany is learn about the region’s rich artistic heritage, from the Renaissance masterpieces of Florence to the intricate glasswork of Murano.

Food and wine

Another big draw is the food and wine. From fresh pasta dishes to hearty stews and soups, there’s something for everyone to enjoy. And of course, you can’t visit Tuscany without trying some of the local wines, such as Chianti and Brunello di Montalcino.

What you soon realise as you travel or cycle within Tuscany, is the food is different in every local province of Tuscany. For example, the pasta dishes (mostly freshly prepared that day) and the sauces vary a lot, from rabbit, to wild boar to venison. More examples: Livorno is famous for fish soup, Florence is famous for the Bistecca Forentian steak.

The wine regions within Tuscany are also superb. From Chianti, which is located between Florence and Siena, to Brunello di Montalcino, to Vermentino from Montecarlo near Montecatini Terme, or to Bolgheri where the super Tuscan wines of Tiganello and Sassacaia are found.

As such, it’s no surprise that holidays and cycling tours in Tuscany are so popular!

Overview of Tuscany for cyclists

Where is tuscany.

Tuscany is located in central Italy. It’s bordered by the regions of Liguria to the northwest, Emilia-Romagna to the north, Marche to the east, Umbria to the southeast, and Lazio to the south.

The region covers an area of approximately 23,000 square kilometres and has a population of around 3.8 million people.

Tuscany is divided into ten provinces: Florence, Arezzo, Grosseto, Livorno, Lucca, Massa-Carrara, Pisa, Pistoia, Prato, and Siena. Each of these provinces has its own unique culture, history, and attractions, making Tuscany a diverse and fascinating region to explore.

Florence is the capital of Tuscany and one of the most famous cities in Italy, known for its art, architecture, and history. The city is located in the heart of Tuscany, surrounded by rolling hills and vineyards. Other notable cities in Tuscany include Pisa, home of the iconic Leaning Tower, and Siena, known for its mediaeval architecture and of course the Strade Bianche.

Map of Tuscany within Italy

Layout of Tuscany (from a cyclist’s perspective)

When cycling Tuscany, bear in mind that the region is divided into

  • Northern mountain region stretching from Carrara in the north heading eastwards in a line towards the north of Florence. From Montecatini Terme you can head north and visit the ski resort of Abetone at 1700m.
  • Below the mountain range you have places like Lucca, Montecatini Terme, Vinci, Pistoia and then Florence. These offer flatter routes; heading south from any one of these towns you find more lightly undulating, but still iconic, scenery.
  • South of Florence you enter the famous Chianti region which offers stunning countryside views of the many vineyards made famous by Chianti. Nearby is Siena which is famous for the Strada Bianche pro race in early March and a perfect stepping stone to visit Chianti.
  • The west side coastline facing the Mediterranean is mainly a flat coastal region all the way south to Lazio.

Best towns in Tuscany (for cyclists)

When considering your cycling holidays, Tuscany can appear very large; it can be difficult to know which area to focus on and what the best cycling base in Tuscany is for your trip.

In this section I share a range of the best places to stay in Tuscany, based on my experience and knowledge of cycling in Tuscany.

Northern Tuscany

Lucca and Montecatini Terme are two of the best towns to stay in Tuscany. They offer great bases for cycling north into the mountain range. Head west towards the Tuscan coast for flatter coastal roads or south for undulating routes towards San Miniato, Vinci (birthplace of Leonardo) or San Gimignano UNESCO world heritage town.

Lucca is a beautiful Tuscan town surrounded by thick 16th Century walls. The walls are 4km long and you can walk or cycle along them. Lucca is also home to some of Italy’s finest mediaeval and Renaissance architecture, superb dining, antique markets, and summer music festivals. It provides easy access to stunning nearby villas and surrounding hills. There are also some great beaches close at hand! Unlike many towns in Tuscany, it isn’t a hilltop town, so it is ideal for anyone looking for flatter riding options.

Montecatini Terme

Montecatini Terme is famous for being one of the best preserved spa towns in Italy, with its elegant art deco buildings, shops, al fresco bars and restaurants. Its leafy parks and laidback atmosphere give it a feeling of tranquility. It’s also less congested than many other towns in Tuscany. It’s a peaceful place to return to after a day riding your bike. In addition, there’s the unique chance to take the old wooden funicular railway built in 1889 up to Montecatini Alto. It offers stunning views of a wide panorama towards Lucca and within the medieval square there are many restaurants and bars to enjoy the local cuisine.

Mid Tuscany

Siena is a city rather than a town, but it’s perhaps the best city in Tuscany (Florence might have something to say about that but I prefer Siena). Gobsmackingly beautiful, it’s also a base that allows you to head in all directions with varying degrees of changes to the scenery. To the north is San Gimignano, to the west is Volterra, to the north east you find Chianti and in the south is the Crete Senesi region

Siena is one of the jewels in Tuscany’s crown, famous for its beautiful architecture and role in the Strade Bianche. Siena’s heart is its central piazza known as Il Campo, known worldwide for the famous Palio run here, a horse race run around the piazza every summer.

Siena also forms an excellent base for exploring the nearby Chianti countryside, which is famous for its gentle hills and characteristic combination of vineyards, olive groves and forests, dotted with red-tiled farmhouses, mediaeval churches and towers, abbeys, castles and magnificent villas.

Riding here, you’ll experience the beautiful forested Chianti hills as well as the iconic vineyards and olive groves. Chianti is dotted with interesting rural parish churches, monasteries, abbeys, villas and castles, often accessed via ancient dirt roads known here as strade bianche , “white roads”, which are lightly travelled and suitable not only for cars but also for bicycles. The Chianti farm houses themselves are often extremely attractive, often built around the remains of a mediaeval watch tower or even a castle.

Crete Senesi

Crete Senesi means the “clays of Siena”. The distinctive grey colouration of the soil gives the landscape an appearance often described as lunar. The landscape is characterised by barren and gently undulating hills, solitary oaks and cypresses, isolated farms at the top of the heights, stretches of wood and ponds of rainwater (commonly referred as fontoni, literally “big springs”) in the valleys .

Southern Tuscany

Pienza is another popular base for cyclists to stay in. It’s located in the heart of the Val d’Orcia UNESCO world heritage area. Here you have rolling hills and country roads with a mix of tarmac and gravel roads which give the distinctive look of huge open agricultural fields.

Val d’Orcia

Val d’Orcia is an incredible destination in rural Tuscany. This area was declared a UNESCO heritage region in 2004 and it has maintained its beauty for centuries. The rolling hills and beautiful villages in Tuscany have been the subject of many Renaissance paintings. It is full of mediaeval castles, vineyards, and olive groves as well as gorgeous farmhouses, isolated homesteads, roads lined with cypress trees, and golden fields of grain and sunflowers.

On the west side you have the famous Brunello wine region.

To the east you have Montepulciano, another famous historical town also made famous by its many vineyards.

The food is also exceptional, with high-quality items like pecorino cheese, extra virgin olive oil, and delicious wine. Cycling in the Val d’Orcia is an unforgettable journey through amazing panoramas and flavours. This paradise is where many of the most beautiful photos of Tuscany come from.

The routes in the south of Tuscany are a mixture of tarmac and gravel; of course, gravel is what makes southern Tuscany iconic. Here there is less traffic than in the north of Tuscany as it’s mainly agricultural. Scenes used in the English Patient and Gladiator scenes were filmed near Pienza.

Tuscany cycling routes

Below I share some of the best Tuscany cycle rides. They’re also personal favourites of mine. Of course there’s not room here to share all the best cycling routes in Tuscany, but hopefully this provides a good start!

Northern Tuscany: Lucca and Montecatini Terme

Two bikes in front of views towards Vinci, Tuscany

Lucca to Montecarlo to Montecatini Terme GPX Download Terms of use reminder

Once you leave Lucca, you are immediately in the countryside. It’s worth stopping to take in one of the most famous of Lucca’s 16th Century villas, Villa Torregiani.

Biking along Tuscany’s many Cypress tree lined minor roads, you pass by many olive groves which produce Lucca’s famous and renowned olive oil. The route has a short climb (the only climb of the day) towards Montecarlo. One side of this small hilltop historical village is full of vineyards and the other side of the village is full of olive groves. There are great views of the countryside from this vantage point; it’s the perfect location for lunch or wine tasting.

Highlights:

  • 12km Villa Torregiani is a stunning villa and photo opportunity.
  • 24km visit the medieval village of Montecarlo for coffee or lunch in the main square. This is the only hill to climb of the whole day and there are many lunch options in the very centre of this medieval village.
  • 38km arrive into Montecatini Terme, a lovely small spa town.

Montecatini Terme to Vinci to San Miniato

GPX Download Terms of use reminder

Once you leave Monsummano behind, you’re in the countryside amongst vineyards and olive groves. The route takes in various lovely villages including Lamporecchio and the climb of San Baronto. W ith lovely views of the countryside, a lunch or coffee at the top of the San Baronto climb is perfect. From San Baronto you have a really nice gentle but panoramic descent to Vinci, the birth place of Leornardo di Vinci. After Vinci you head towards Cerruto Guidi, a well known chianti wine area, which you will cycle past on your way to the historical hilltop town of San Miniato.

San Miniato is the end of the ride and offers great views of the countryside, showing you were you have cycled from. San Miniato is part of the famous Via Francigena pilgrim walk from Canterbury to Roma during the 12th century.

  • 21km Lamporechio village was the home of Vincenzo Nibali, winner of the Tour de France (2014), Giro d’Italia (2013 and 2016) and Vuelta (2010).
  • 22km start of a 3km climb to the iconic village of San Baronto. At the top is a bar and restaurant. You can take refreshments on the balcony overlooking the view of the countryside where you have cycled from.
  • Vinci village – you can visit the museum of Leornardo di Vinci in the old battlement centre (the Museum is very interesting and brings to life the drawings into models).

Mid Tuscany: Siena and Chianti

Siena to Radda in Chianti

This is a lovely picturesque Tuscany cycling route which starts in Siena and covers vineyards and some of the best villages in Tuscany, including Castellina in Chianti and Radda in Chianti, both in the heart of the Chianti Classico region.

It also takes in Monteriggioni mediaeval walled castle. The route after leaving Monteriggioni is quiet route with a climb to Castellina in Chianti where there’s the opportunity to enjoy a wine tasting at Castello di Fonterutoli . After this you have generous panoramic views all the way to the historical village of Radda in Chianti. This is such a lovely tiny village with enormous character with one high street filled with individual crafts, wine tasting, restaurants and cafes.

  • At 14km visit the walled castle of Monteriggioni
  • At 33km visit wine estate of Fonterutoli
  • At 38km visit the historical centre of Castellina in Chianti

San Gimignano to Siena

This is one of the most panoramic routes to Siena when cycling from the north. You leave San Gimignano with two climbs, but once on top of the mountain you have a wonderful slow descent and at the same time some of the best views in Tuscany as you head towards the small historical village of Casole D’Elsa.

A gradual descent takes you towards the very small village of Badia Isola – one of the refreshment stops on the famous Via Francigena Pilgrim walk. In the 12th Century it used to be an overnight stop for pilgrims and it’s now a museum to showcase its history.

Not long after this village you come across the stunning Monteriggioni castle ; it’s a great place for a refreshment stop.

As you head into Siena it will start to get busy but as you are arriving from the north it’s a quieter route into the city.

  • At 26km visit Castle d’Elsa village – lovely views of the countryside
  • At 43km visit Abbadia Isola located on the Via Francigena, its a lovely village to explore the fortified abbey once a resting place for the pilgrims as they made there way to Rome.
  • At 47km Visit the walled castle of Monteriggioni

Southern Tuscany: Val d’Orcia and Pienza

Cyclist in the Val D’Orcia Unesco world heritage area

Pienza to Montepulciano, Montichiello and Pienza

This is an easy route, with a light, gradual climb to Montepulciano with panoramic views of the countryside. As you enter Montepulciano you can’t help feeling this town has hardly changed since the 15th century, with its narrow streets and bustling shops offering local produce and a hilly walk to the main piazza for a coffee break.

After Montepulciano, you head south, with a section of gravel roads which is typical of some roads in Southern Tuscany, towards the small but picturesque village of Montichiello. Montichiello is a perfect place for lunch. After a great descent towards Bagno Vignoni you return to Pienza via a short climb.

  • 16 km coffee break inside Montepulciano
  • 29 km Montichiello has lovely views and is a good stop for coffee or lunch. It’s worth calling in advance to make sure the Osteria is open. If it’s a nice day, ask to book a table outside on the balcony – it has stunning views.

Pienza to Montisi and Montalcino

This is a really nice rolling hill route on quiet roads cycling past the small villages of Castelmuzio, Montisi and San Giovanni d’Asso. These are all perched on hilltops offering lovely views of the countryside and are ideal places for a refreshment stop.

Torrenieri village is the start of a 5 kilometre gravel section (used in the Giro d’Italia stage 7 in 2010 – this was one of the most iconic stages on a rain fueled day won by Cadel Evans). It’s now used as part of the L’Eroica long route. L’Eroica is the vintage bike festival held in October every year.

Brunello wine is world renowned and as you head towards the climb to Montalcino you will pass by many vineyards  surrounding the town. The GPS file indicates numerous Brunello wine estates offering wine tasting and light snack options before arriving at the hilltop town of Montalcino. Here you’ll find lovely main squares with lots of cafes and restaurants to eat al fresco as well as dedicated wine shops offering Brunello wine tasting experiences.

Once you leave Montalcino you have a wonderful descent for 12km and cycle around the iconic and highest mountain in the south of Tuscany, Monte Amiata. Thankfully you (mostly) cycle around it, but there is a long climb to 600m elevation before another long descent to Bagno Vignoni. This is an original open air Roman Spring Bath; when you visit the bath you can see hot water bubbles to the surface. The water originates 1,000m below the ground.

From 8 to 20km you pass through three quaint villages, each an ideal stop for a refreshment break.

As you cycle uphill to Montalcino you will see various wines estates. Make sure you book a wine tasting as the wine estate prefer notice in advance.

At 41km arrive in Montalcino beautiful preserved historical hilltop town surrounded by vineyards and wonderful panoramic views of the countryside from many vantage points.

At 72km visit the small village and view the open air Roman spring bath.

Crete Senesi: Castelnuovo Berardenga – Strade Bianche – Bounconvento – Pienza

Here you enter a new province of Crete Sinesi which is criss crossed by Strada Bianche (see dotted red lines). The sections shown are used in the Strade Bianche Road Race

It has the famous section they call Monte Santa Maria 11.5km section as Fabian Cancellara is honour of the three times winner of the race.

  • At 26km visit the abbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore large Benedictine Monastery
  • At 35km visit historical town of Buonconvento
  • At 38 – 50km and 54 – 65km experience sections of Strada Bianche route as per the race .

Road quality in Tuscany

An important consideration for road cycling in Tuscany is – what are the roads like?!

Fortunately it’s pretty good news.

Cycling is very popular amongst both tourists and locals in Tuscany. At the weekends thousands of club riders head out in the morning to enjoy the varied riding.

Traffic is generally very considerate to cyclists, there are so many amateur cycle events and professional races in the region that motorists are used to seeing and accommodating cyclists bike riding Tuscany’s roads.

There are few traffic free cycle paths in Tuscany; there are some on the coast but in the interior, cyclists have to share the road with motorists.

In the north, I tend to find mostly smooth roads in the towns to be generally pretty good but I’d suggest staying off the main A roads due to traffic. The surfaces in the south and west are in much better condition as less people live here, there is less industry and it’s rare to see large trucks/wagons on the roads as this part of the region is the agricultural and wine-producing part of Tuscany.

Cycling events in Tuscany

Given how popular bike riding in Tuscany is, it’s not surprising that it’s also home to two major annual cycling events that attract thousands of riders each year:

  • Strade Bianche in early March
  • Tirreno – Adriatico always starts in Tuscany in mid March
  • L’Eroica in early October

Strade Bianche

Strade Bianche is Tuscany’s most famous cycling event. It’s held in Siena over the first weekend in March. It’s swiftly become one of cycling’s most famous races.

On Saturday of the Strade Bianche weekend, you have the opportunity to watch the riders sign on and mingle with spectators and watch the start of the women’s race followed by the men’s race. You have plenty of time to watch the women finish on the famous Santa Caterina climb before heading to the car and going to the 60 km point to the finish at San Martino gravel climb to see the men (and entourage). You can then head to the finish to watch the men climb San Martino.

On Sunday of the Strade Bianche weekend, you can participate with 6,000 riders in the same event with a 90 or 140 km route experiencing the same routes and finish as the pros. There is no other event quite like this that allows you to finish so spectacularly in the main Piazza del Campo. With an array of al fresco bars and restaurants, there are plenty of places to quench your thirst.

L’Eroica, Chianti

L’Eroica is an annual non-competitive vintage cycling event which has taken place since 1997. The idea of the event is to let cyclists experience vintage cycling during the golden years of Italian Cycling in the 40’s and 50’s, with participants using vintage steel bikes, accessories and vintage clothing. To participate you must have a steel bike pre-1987 and wear old fashioned woollen cycling clothes in keeping with the traditional event.

The event starts and finishes in Gaiole in Chianti with the 209 and 135 km route on Saturday and the 106, 81 and 46 km routes on Sunday.

The route is often on “strade bianche”, the white gravel roads Tuscany is famous for. It is held on the first Sunday of October every year. It showcases the stunning Chianti Classico and Crete Sinesi countryside with refreshment stops along many villages offering local specialities such as Tuscan bread dipped in wine, pig fat bruschetta, Ribolita soup, sandwiches, fruit and of course local wine.

L’Eroica is the most popular vintage bike event in the world, with riders coming from as far as America, Australia and South Africa, as well as across Europe. It’s a fun weekend with a huge cycle as well as local stall holders offering many wine and food experiences plus live music.

L’Eroica, Montalcino

This is a recently introduced vintage bike event based around Montalcino.

The organisers felt that riders on the 209km l’Eroica Chianti event in October where the only riders able to see the beauty of this southern region of Tuscany. (On the 209km route, Montalcino is the southern most part of the ride; from here, riders then turn and head towards back to Gaiole in Chianti via Buonconvento and Asciano.)

This new event allows more riders to experience the southern part of the vintage bike event. The organisers created a new event called “L’Eroica Montalcino” offering 46, 70, 96 and 135km routes on the last weekend in May.

Giro d’Italia

The Giro can often be found visiting Tuscany.

One of Italy’s road cycling heroes, the Giro’s three-time champion Gino Bartali even has a cycling museum dedicated to him in Ponte e Ema in Florence. It displays 19th-century bicycles, as well as two bikes ridden by Gino.

Giro d’Italia again visits Tuscany in 2023, with two stages on the Versilian coastline, stage 10 finishing in Viareggio and stage 11 starting in Camaiore.

Tour de France

New for 2024! The Tour de France will start in Florence in homage to the past giants of Italian Cycling, Fausto Coppi, Gino Bartali, Ricardo Nencini, Ottavio Bottecchia, Marco Pantani, Felice Gimondi and the last winner of the Tour from Italy, Vincenzo Nibali.

Hotels (and accommodation) for cyclists in Tuscany

In my experience, most accommodation welcomes cyclists; cycling is a popular sport in Tuscany and it’s a growing market, with a strong trend in demand from tour operators.

There are no specific bike hotels as such, but all hotels tend to offer facilities for bike storage and early breakfast if needed. However, don’t expect mechanical assistance as standard, as these are not bike-specific hotels.

Types of accommodation

Town centre hotels.

As Tuscany is such a popular destination, you’ll find great places to stay inside every historical town. Usually they’ll be 3 star establishments and occasionally 4 star.  The challenge is that these towns are small and demand in the summer is very high, so it’s important to book early to secure the hotel.

Italian agriturismos

Agriturismos are also popular in the Tuscan countryside but again especially in the summer demand is high, booking one or two nights is not going to be accepted. They prefer 4 night minimum stays in high season.

Wine estates

Accommodation in castles or wine estates in Chianti or Brunello region are another possibility. They are expensive but are at a level of quality way above any of the hotels in towns. They usually offer their own restaurant, swimming pools, health club and winery to provide an exceptional experience.

Bike-friendly hotels in Tuscany

Below I share some of our favourite cycling hotels in Tuscany; these tie in with the regions above.

Hotel Luna is a 3 star superior hotel that’s very much inside the mediaeval walled town of Lucca. It has characterful rooms and you are close to all facilities and amenities.

In a much quieter location is Hotel San Martino , still inside the mediaeval centre.

Hotel La Villa is a stylish 3-star modern hotel with a fantastic location in the north of the city. It’s easy to cycle to as it’s away from the very centre of Siena but within 5 minutes walk you are in the city

Hotel Minerva is a more traditional 3-star hotel located north of the city but again it’s easy to cycle to. It has a large covered and secure car park for the bikes and vehicles.

There’s not much of a range of hotels in Pienza, but I like these two very good and well located hotels. Both are three star. They are Hotel San Gregorio and Relais Chiostro di Pienza .

The San Gregorio suites are well priced and offer 1 large bedroom and a large room with sofa, table, chairs and a fridge.

The Relais Chiostro di Pienza is located inside the village. It’s a former Franciscan Monastery dating back to the 13th century and offers stunning panoramic views of the countryside as well as an outdoor swimming pool. It has an in house restaurant offering al fresco tables with great views and charming hotel rooms .

Hotel Belvedere is a newly renovated 4-start hotel that only opened in late summer 2022. It has all modern facilities and is in a nice quiet location away from the hustle and bustle of the town.

Francia Quirinale is the other 4 star hotel that’s centrally located close to cafes and bars. It’s old style design offers a nice balcony to enjoy drinks.

You can find other bike hotels in Tuscany in this article.

Bike hire in Tuscany

If you’re looking for bike hire in Tuscany, you’ll be pleased to hear that you can find it in places like Lucca, Montecatini, Siena and Montepulciano.

However many secondary towns and hilltop villages, such as Vinci, San Gimignano, Montalcino, Pienza and San Miniato do not have bicycle rental available.

There are three bike rental shops in Tuscany that I use:

Ruota a Ruota

Via S. Donato,

Colle di Val D’elsa

loc. Pian dell’Olmino, 77

53034 – Colle di Val d’Elsa (SIENA)

Cicli Maggi

Viale Ammiraglio Morin, 79

55042 – Forte dei Marmi

You can expect all Tuscany bike shops to speak English. Also, you can expect them to be open throughout the week, except Sunday. Be aware that most close for lunch from 1 – 3pm.

Bike shops in Tuscany

Occasionally you may need assistance due to a problem with your bike you can’t sort out yourself.

Most major towns have bike shops but secondary towns will not always have a bike shops so be aware to make a note of your routes and locate the nearest bike shop in case of emergency.

Big stores like Decathlon and Nencini sport are available within the region and are also a great source of bike parts and service / repair.

Remember all bike shops are closed on Sunday.

Bike tours in Tuscany

Cycling Tuscany on a self-guided trip is, in my opinion, the best way to see the region. It gives the flexibility of being able to start any day of the week and in any month of the year, with the convenience and time-saving advantages of having a local cyclist and support on hand.

Tuscany cycling tour options: self-guided or add a guide

Via my business, Gusto Cycling , I offer 7 night / 8 day self-guided Tuscany cycle tours. If requested, we can also provide a guide to accompany the clients.

There are two tours, one is Tuscany South and the other is Tuscany North.

These tours give you the opportunity to really immerse yourself in Tuscany via the backroads of the countryside, quaint villages, wine estates, olive groves and enjoy stopping for a cappuccino or lunch with lovely views during the day.

Prices include luggage transfers and routes I’ve personally created along many of the best roads in Tuscany, with distances to suit your group.

Tuscany North (Lucca to Siena or Siena to Lucca)

  • Visit the Leaning Tower of Pisa
  • Stay overnight in beautiful Lucca, the preserved 15th-century walled town
  • Stay overnight in Montecatini Terme, a lovely small Baroque spa town and visit Montecatini Alto with its stunning views and mediaeval setting.
  • Visit Vinci the birthplace of Leornarado di Vinci
  • Stay in quality accommodation, with warm hospitality, all hand-picked by me.
  • Visit and stay overnight in San Gimignano and Siena, both stunning mediaeval towns.
  • I will provide each day a list of places to enjoy a coffee break and lunch so you can maximise your Tuscan experience.

Tuscany South (Siena to Montalcino or Montalcino to Siena)

  • Visit the famous towns of San Gimignano, Radda In Chianti, Pienza, Montepulciano and Montalcino.
  • Bike ride through stunning landscapes, wide-open fields, cypress-lined Tuscan hills, and many of the best wineries in Tuscany.
  • Cycle through the historic wine regions of Tuscany, sampling the best wines of Chianti, Montepulciano, and Montalcino.
  • Stay in quality accommodation, with warm hospitality, all handpicked by me.
  • Visit the wine and the renowned cheese of Pecorino in Montepulciano and Pienza.
  • Cycle along the rolling hills of Chianti and Crete Sinesi, plus cycling through Tuscany’s stunning UNESCO heritage region of Val d’Orcia.
  • I will provide each day a list of places to enjoy a coffee break and lunch so you can maximise your experience.

Distances can vary each day from 35 – 50km. With the odd exception, elevations usually vary from 500 – 1000m elevation. Usually it’s not mountainous but it does tend to get more hilly the further south you go. The reward from these hills is the spectacular views of the countryside.

Bespoke routes

I am always happy to tailor the routes on our Tuscany cycling tours for groups, couples, families – and even this year a couple on their honeymoon who are staying in some of the most spectacular properties in Italy!

We also cater for family cycling holidays in Tuscany. I tend to direct theses type of enquiries to Tuscany south as we can route the tour via much more gravel sections off road allowing to cycle between smaller towns. Also accommodation options means we can provide shorter distances each day.

Rental bikes for the tour

We can supply many different kinds of bikes, depending what our clients are looking for: hybrid, electric hybrid, gravel bikes, carbon racing bikes, electric racing bikes and even tandems!

The bikes are always serviced before delivery to the client’s hotel and we ensure all is well with it.

Mechanical assistance

All bikes are provided with a puncture kit (one inner tube, tyre leavers and Co2 Valve) and we expect all customers to be able to change an inner tube.

In the very rare case there is a need for a mechanic we can dispatch one within a reasonable time frame.

When to visit Tuscany

The ideal season to cycle Tuscany is April (average temperatures around 19 degrees), May (average temperatures around 23 degrees) and June (average temperatures around 28 degrees).

Early Autumn in Tuscany is also a good time to visit, from September (26 degrees) to October (21 degrees). During these months, temperatures are great for cycling and al fresco dining. There are also many festivities throughout the May and June period.

The weather is really hot between the end of June to the end of August, and temperatures can reach anything from an average of 32 to 38 degrees with a high humidity factor. During these months, e-bikes can be your best friend.

Even if you come at one of the optimal times of year, I’d still suggest bringing a light rain jacket and possibly a wind jacket if you are cycling down the higher mountains. However, it’s very rare that there is significant wind as the northern mountains of Tuscany block the wind coming from the northern part of Italy.

If you prefer riding in a short sleeve jersey, bring some arm warmers as well as they can be useful for cool early morning starts and are easy to place in your back pocket after an early start in the morning.

Tips for cycling in Tuscany

I always suggest clients try all the food as it’s so varied from town to town. Every part of Tuscany has their own style of ragu, cheese, wine and bread.

For example, in Lucca you would not be offered pappardelle with wild boar meat: that is offered in the south of Siena and Pienza. Also pici pasta and a local speciality dish called cacio e pepe (huge spaghetti with Pecorino cheese) are found in Siena but not elsewhere. Siena is also known for its panforte Christmas dessert.

Meanwhile Pienza is well known for all types of Pecorino cheese. Lucca is well known for olive oil. Florence is known for its ribollita soups.

You get the picture!

Every town has a fountain for access to fresh cold water.

Wine regions include Cerruta Guidi, Chianti, Brunello, Montepulciao and more.

There are now many wine estates in most parts of Tuscany. Many are internationally known like Chianti and Brunello but there are also more regional estates catering for the Italian market.

When visiting wine estates it’s important to book a time slot. Wine tasting and wine tours are becoming more and more popular and invariably they will not be able to add another booking if you just turn up, as staff levels limit more bookings.

Also many wine estates offer light or full lunch with wine tasting again. As before, you need to book in advance if you wish to enjoy a food experience with the wine.

Restaurants

Every restaurant closes one day a week. It’s important if you have a restaurant in mind to check they are open on the day you plan to visit.

Weekends are very busy in the restaurant trade. Sunday is as busy as Saturday so I’d always suggest booking at weekends.

Also a small but important detail! Steaks are always cooked rare to medium rare. If you want it better cooked make sure you advise the waiter taking the order.

Remember shops close for lunch from 13.00 – 15.00. However most cafe bars generally open all day.

If you are wondering what to buy from convenience stores, for the perfect sandwich, you could consider buying fresh cut parma ham, Toscano salami, fennel salami and pecorino cheese from the deli.

If there is a group of you heading to Tuscany and you’re planning to bring your own bikes then I’d recommend booking early and getting a minibus. For example our minibus vans can carry five people and five bikes. Any more than this number and you would need two mini buses. Alternatively, take the easier option and do a self guided tour of Tuscany and arrange for luggage to be transferred each day.

However if you are staying in one location then you can skip the car rental market completely. I’d suggest hiring the racing bikes you need, booking a private transfer to your first night’s destination and have the bikes delivered to your hotel. On the last day take a private transfer back to the airport.

Bike choice

Choosing the right bike for your bicycle tour of Tuscany is important as it depends how comfortable you would be for a week’s cycling.

If you’re looking for a leisure holiday, whilst an aluminium hybrid bike has a great range of gears which give you comfort to cycle and give you the scope to cycle up any hills on your tour, it will be heavy. You can expect front suspension, wide tyres, disc brakes and rear panniers.

For those hiring road bikes in Tuscany, I’d suggest a minimum of 25mm sized tyres. If you plan to cycle on strada bianche roads please advise the bike shop so that gravel bikes are offered. These come with 28- 34mm tyres, giving you much more scope for comfort.

Touring Editore Toscana is a great book – but be aware it’s in Italian!

David Cleveland, author of Bicycle Touring in Tuscany

Public transport

Railway travel in Italy is one of the cheapest in Europe. Bikes are allowed on regional trains; you have to pay extra but it’s not expensive and there are special rail carriages for bike storage. It’s definitely worth booking in advance as otherwise bike tickets are sold on a first come, first served basis so space is not guaranteed.

Useful vocabulary

English is not always spoken outside the main historic and cultural centres of Tuscany, so it’s useful to know a few words of Italian for your Tuscany bike trip:

  • Dove E – where is?
  • Biciclettaio – bike shop
  • Forato – puncture
  • Dove si puo mangiare – where can we eat?

bike tours tuscany

How to get to Tuscany

Pisa and Florence Airport are the two airports in Tuscany. Pisa has many more flights then Florence as Florence has a short runway and so is only allowed to have smaller aircraft.

Alternatively, you can fly into Rome and take the fast Trenitalia or Italo train from Rome to Florence in 90 minutes. There are often four trains an hour to and from Rome to Florence. If you book online it will be cheaper based on set departure times. However, on these fast trains there is no room for bike boxes.

Trains are the best and cheapest option to travel from the airport – www.trenitalia.it offers you the fast intercity trains and the local train services with timings and prices to book online.

Marco Mori

Marco runs Gusto Cycling. He says “I have always been interested in cycling, ever since my uncle took me to see a cycle race in Tuscany when I was 11 years old. This opened my eyes to a new sport and experience. I have been a cyclist ever since, both here in the UK and in Tuscany.

I have spent my whole career in the travel business, working with international tour operators. This gave me a full grounding in managing tours.

I started Gusto Cycling 12 years ago to capitalise on my huge knowledge of Tuscany (all my family is from Montecatini Terme). We offer a unique and a more authentic perspective on cycling in Tuscany via two different tours: Tuscany North and Tuscany South.

We Bike Tuscany offers small group, family and private fully-guided multi day bike tours in Tuscany, Emilia Romagna, Sicily, the Dolomites and beyond. Though now based in the US, we were "born" in Italy (as I Bike Tuscany ), and pride ourselves on remaining one of the few truly "boutique" bike tour companies of the region. And as the term implies, that means personalized service and attention to detail, as well as an experience that, we think, is just a little more special, a little more authentic and definitely different from the others.

WBT co-owner, Jodie Scholz Vignoli, heads up the Los Angeles office, ready to answer all your questions and help you choose and book the perfect trip. Once in Italy, "Super Tuscan" Marco Vignoli and team continue to lead the way -- to the most spectacular scenery, the most charming villages and off the beaten path experiences, and of course the best restaurants and wineries (we are buongustai here - AKA "foodies" - after all). Together it is our mission to make your days biking in Italy some of the most memorable and pleasurable of your life.

We invite you to take a look at our trips , and if you see something you like (we have a feeling you may), drop us an email . We'll be happy to get back to you (via phone or email as you wish) and help you start planning what we promise will be an extraordinary adventure.

WE BIKE TUSCANY is recommended in Lonely Planet Italy guidebook for 2018. You'll find us under "Best Outdoor Experiences." Plus Travel + Leisure magazine: "Best Bike Trips in Tuscany" and Get Lost magazine: "13 Not So Average Honeymoons."

Testimonials

Nydia hinckley & jorge berrios with lucy mclean, usa/canada, val d'orcia dream 2015.

Marco and Jodie: Thanks for the wonderful experience of Val d’Orcia Dream. Now back in my office I can tell that it was really a dream. I will recommend the tour to other people and maybe we will see you again. Jorge Berrios. Marco, thank you again for the great time you gave us. Jorge's dream was completely fulfilled and you had a lot to do with that. Seeing the beautiful scenery and riding hard when I needed to was really good for me. The sound of the sheep walking with the bells around their collars is something I will never forget. Take care, and know that you both have a friend in San Antonio, Texas. Nydia Hinckley

Tuscany bike tour reviews.

Trip of a lifetime. Could not have been any better. Would recommend to others.
Had a fantastic time cycling around Tuscany. It was extremely challenging for me, but rewarding. I was well supported throughout the ride. The scenery, food, wine and small villages were amazing ?
We enjoyed excellent bikes, accommodations, and an informative guidebook as we biked routes with little traffic through gorgeous country. The regional architecture, art, agriculture and food was extraordinary, as was communication with our Cycle Europe contact, Sarah. She went out of her way to ease the planning and execution of our trip, including Rome Covid testing-related logistics.

The rides were phenomenal. Great conditions, great views, great challenges, all very rewarding. Even with selecting the long option ride, I still found the balance of down time to be great. There's enough flexibility within to make the trip YOUR OWN trip. Excellent job.

An amazing trip. We were married in Florence the day before our Trek trip started. It was the best way to spend our honeymoon. We were able to spend time together cycling which is an activity that brought us together and that we are both very passionate about!

Additional Arrival Information

We suggest that you arrive at least one day prior to the trip start, which will enable you to adjust to the time zone and minimize the risk of missing the trip start due to flight-related delays. We recommend that you fly into Florence’s Amerigo Vespucci Airport (FLR) and rent a car for the duration of the trip. Most major rental car companies are available at FLR. Advance booking is recommended. If you are not renting a car, the Florence airport is about three miles from the town center. You can take a taxi (approximately €20) to the centre of town, or a bus which departs hourly. From Florence (Santa Maria Novella train station) there are frequent direct trains to Siena. The trip takes about 90 minutes and a one-way ticket costs about ten euros. Italian train schedules can be found on www.TrenItalia.com .

The trip takes place in the Tuscan countryside that is not well served by public transportation. For this reason, if you have not rented a car, we suggest you take a taxi ride from Siena to San Quirico d'Orcia. A private transfer from Siena to San Quirico takes about one hour and costs approximately €150. We suggest you contact our local driver ahead of time to arrange the transfer. Our Trip Consultant can provide you with our recommended local contact information.

Your Trek Travel host will meet you at your trip hotel Villa Liberty (Via Dante Alighieri 119, 53027 San Quirico D'orcia SI) at 11:00 AM on the first day of the trip. Depending on the number of guests booked for your departure date, it is possible we will ask you to shift your meeting time by approximately 30 minutes. Please have your riding gear readily accessible to avoid having to unpack your luggage. After a trip overview, you may change into your cycling gear where you will then be fitted to your Trek bike ensuring you will be comfortable for the week. Following a safety talk and a review of the details of the route, you'll begin the day's ride through the Tuscan countryside.

If you will be late for the meeting or are going to miss it altogether, please inform your host. If you cannot reach them, please call our hotel, Villa Liberty (+39 0577 899028) and leave a message with your expected arrival time and contact details.

Additional Departure Information

Your Trek Travel host will meet you at 11:00 AM at the trip hotel to take your bike and equipment before your departure. The hotel staff will be happy to reserve a taxi for you for Florence or other destinations. The trip to the airport in Florence takes approximately two hours. Please allow adequate connection time for any ongoing travel to accommodate possible traffic delays.

Then, it's off on your self-guided bike tour in the enchanting landscape of the Val d’Orcia, famous for its unique and pristine views. Your first stop is the tiny medieval spa town of Bagno Vignoni, where you can dip your toes in the historic thermal springs and take pictures of the Roman baths located right at its center. Continue this scenic loop with a gentle climb up to Pienza, a UNESCO heritage site renowned for its pecorino cheese and considered one of the symbols of the Italian Renaissance. Wander through its streets and grab the best gelato in town at “Buon Gusto” before cycling back to your hotel at your leisure. Take some time to relax perhaps with a glass of wine in the garden and afterwards we suggest you walk to one of our favorite restaurants in the heart of San Quirico to enjoy your first Tuscan dinner!

Today you’ll head north following winding ribbons of road into gently undulating terrain into one of Italy’s most dramatic regions, the Crete Senesi. Here vineyards and olive trees give way to cultivated fields crossed occasionally by rows of cypress trees and a few solitary farmhouses. Riding here gives you a feeling of peace and, if you feel like adding some more mileage and elevation, take the avid route to Asciano, pedaling through meandering roads overlooking the surrounding ridges on an other-worldly route. We highly recommend you stop for lunch at our favourite restaurant in the tiny village of Montisi, Taverna da Roberto (please, make a reservation ahead of time). You'll be amazed by the passion and love he puts into preparing a delicious farm to table lunch for his guests!

  • Expect slower service in restaurants and cafés in Tuscany. Be aware that meals usually take a little longer and are traditionally multiple courses.

Before and After Your Trip

Siena, Italy

One of Italy's medieval jewels, Siena is a labryinth of rambling red-brick lanes. Siena's heart is its central piazza known as Il Campo, a shell-shaped square dominated by the red Palazzo Pubblico and its tower, Torre del Mangia. Admire it from below or climb over 500 steps to the top to enjoy a wonderful view—this is one stop you don't want to miss in Siena. Piazza del Campo is known worldwide for its architectural beauty and its particular "shell" form. Another unmissable highlight is the stunning Gothic Duomo full of treasures, including its marble pavement, Piccolomini library frescoes, and incredibly ornate interiors. We recommend the following accommodations for your pre-trip hotel:

Florence, Italy

Florence is the majestic heart of Renaissance art and intellect. Several days can be spent wandering the streets in the shadow of Brunelleschi’s Duomo and strolling beside the Arno. Along with the Duomo and Ponte Vecchio, the Uffizi gallery, a pillar of the Renaissance and Medici eras, merits a visit. Michelangelo's David in the Galleria dell'Accademia is not to be missed. Keep in mind while exploring Florence that opening hours vary and are quite often inconsistent. Different museums are open on different days and lines can be very long. It’s worthwhile to pay a few extra euros and pre-book your tickets—this will enable you to bypass long lines of visitors at the entrances.

Tour de France

Where’s quinn simmons why one of america’s top stars missed the tour de france, former us champion hasn't raced since strade bianche. lidl-trek officials tell velo 'there is light at the end of the tunnel' for a simmons comeback this summer..

Don't miss a moment of the 2024 Tour de France! Get recaps, insights, and exclusive takes with Velo's daily newsletter. >","name":"in-content-cta","type":"link"}}'>Sign up today! .

BOLOGNA, Italy (Velo) — Where’s Quinn Simmons ? That’s a question that many U.S. fans have been asking at this year’s Tour de France .

The 2023 U.S. national champion hasn’t raced since crashing out of Strade Bianch e in March, and did not defend his national title in May .

Without race days, he was not a candidate for Lidl-Trek ’s Tour de France selection.

Speaking to Velo , a team spokesperson said Simmons was suffering fatigue and needed a full stop to re-set for the second half of 2024, and said expectations are that he should return to racing in August.

“Quinn had to take some time off due to over-training,” the spokesperson said. “He’s been going through a lot of health checks, and there is light at the end of the tunnel.”

Simmons last raced at Strade Bianche after starting the 2024 season at the Santos Tour Down Under. Simmons packed high hopes for the spring classics, with a particular focus on the white roads of Tuscany, but did not finish the race after crashing heavily.

The 2019 junior world champion has not raced since and returned to his home base in Colorado to rest and hit the re-start button.

Lidl-Trek officials did not elaborate on whether other issues are involved.

Speaking to Velo at the beginning of the season, Simmons admitted that the horrific high-speed crash that claimed the life of Gino Mäder during last year’s Tour de Suisse made him reconsider his professional racing career .

“After the Tour de Suisse, I flew home and I was pretty convinced I was never going to race a bike again,” Simmons told Velo in January .

Mäder crashed on a harrowing descent in the Swiss Alps last June, and was airlifted to a local hospital where he later died from his injuries. Simmons was trailing behind Mäder and the emotional jolt of the tragedy made him think twice about racing.

“I was like ‘screw this, I am out’,” Simmons told Velo in January. “I spent the week before nationals with my family. I made the deal with myself I would go all-in and win the race, and dedicate it to [Mäder].”

Simmons later won and dedicated his U.S. title in 2023 to Mäder and started the 2023 Tour in the national champion’s jersey. He later abandoned the Tour, and did not finish two later starts at the end of last season.

Simmons debuted in Australia with optimism, and raced the Faun Drôme and the Faun-Ardèche Classic one-days in France before heading to the Italian one-day classic over the gravel roads of Tuscany.

There are no specific calendar dates yet for Simmons, but team officials are hopeful he would return to racing this summer.

“He started high-intensity training again and everything is on track with all the testing he’s been doing,” the team said Sunday. “He should resume racing in August.”

Simmons recently posted a message on Instagram suggesting he’s ready to race, writing, “Can’t keep a [horse] in its stall forever.”

Tour de France TV channel, start time and how to watch stage one online today

The Tour de France promises plenty of intriguing with a peloton packed with storylines battles across three weeks of racing.

For the first time, the Grand Tour will begin in Italy, with Florence hosting the Grand Depart and San Marino becoming the 14th country to be visited by a stage.

The finish to the race will look rather different, too, as a time trial in Nice replaces the traditional Champs-Elysees sprint due to the ongoing preparations for Paris 2024.

The individual time trial will be the first to conclude the Tour since 1989, when Greg LeMond memorably pipped Laurent Fignon in the closest edition in history.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the 2024 Tour de France.

When is the Tour de France?

The 2024 Tour de France will be held between June 29 and July 21 and consist of 21 stages, with two rest days included in the itinerary. The race will not finish in (or near) Paris for the first time since its inception as Nice is instead utilised — the French capital is out of action due to the Olympics later this summer.

Where is the Grand Depart?

The Grand Depart will be held in Italy for the first time, with Florence in Tuscany selected to begin the route. Stage 1 will finish in the coastal resort of Rimini, while the next three stages will also begin in Italy before the race crosses the border.

How long is the Tour?

In all, the peloton will cover 3,492km (2,170 miles) across 21 days of racing. Stage 3 (Piacenza to Turin) is the longest stage at 229km (142 miles), while the 133 km (83 miles) route on Stage 20 (Nice to Col de La Couillole) is the shortest road stage. There are two individual time trials: Stage 7 is 25km (16 miles), and the final stage from Monaco to Nice will be contested over 34km (21 miles).

How can I watch it?

Viewers in the United Kingdom will again have the choice of two broadcasters. ITV will provide free coverage on ITV4 and ITVX, while the Tour de France will also be available to subscribers on Eurosport and discovery+.

Eurosport’s coverage of the opening stage begins at 10.30am BST on Saturday 29 June, while ITV viewers can tune in from 10.45am.

If you’re travelling abroad and want to watch major sporting events, you might need a VPN to unblock your streaming app. Our VPN round-up is here to help and includes deals on VPNs in the market. Viewers using a VPN need to make sure that they comply with any local regulations where they are, and also with the terms of their service provider.

Who are the favourites for victory?

There are set to be four main contenders for general classification victory, though each of the quartet arrives with significant questions about their readiness for the year’s second Grand Tour. Defending champion Jonas Vingegaard (Visma-Lease a Bike) will seek a three-peat but has not raced since sustaining a broken collarborne and other injuries in a serious crash at the Tour of the Basque Country in April.

Primoz Roglic (Bora-Hansgrohe) and Remco Evenepoel (Soudal-QuickStep) were also injured in the incident, though the pair returned to racing at the recent Criterium du Dauphine as Roglic took overall victory.

Tadej Pogacar (UAE Team Emirates) meanwhile enters attempting a Giro-Tour double having secured the maglia rosa in Italy earlier this year — no male rider has won both races in a single season this century.
