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!
