Holiday Information

This fantastic cycling holiday in Italy really showcases the beautiful Tuscan countryside. Rural Tuscany is synonymous with undulating green hills capped by medieval tile-roofed towns punctuated by cypresses, churches and stone farmhouses. The rolling green countryside will be the backdrop for most of our ride and we'll have the chance to explore the Crete Senesi and the Val d'Orcia which are among the most classic and beautiful areas in the whole of Tuscany.
As we cycle through Tuscany's natural beauty, we'll experience thrilling riding along steep valleys, dense forests, rivers and the legendary routes from Volterra to San Gimignano, Monteriggioni and on to Siena.
After arriving in Pisa we'll drive through the Tuscan landscape, arriving at our first accommodation in Volterra, one of the many historical towns we'll be visting throughout the week. The subsequent days will see us following quiet roads, riding past picturesque farmhouses nestled amidst olive groves, vineyards and forests on our way to the medieval towns of Abbadia Isola, Monteriggioni, Buonconvento and Siena. Towns steeped in Italian Renaissance atmosphere, scattered with great restaurants, superb gelaterias and the excellent wines of Chianti and Montalcino, what better way to visit Tuscany?
Our Taste of Tuscany holiday is run as a fully guided tour with two set departures per year. However, if you enjoy a little more freedom and flexibility then we do have a slightly gentler, self-guided version of this holiday available.
