The Heart of Tuscany 3 Night

If your time in Tuscany is limited, but you still want to taste some of the best the region has to offer, consider our three-night tour.  Even with just a few days to spare, you will find yourself pedaling along some of the most beautiful and scenic roads in the world, sipping cappuccino in the mornings, sampling fine Chianti in the afternoon, and savoring sumptuous regional foods by night.  The lauded natural beauty and romantic scenes of Tuscany have not been overstated. Come and discover them for yourself!

We love customizations, and if you would like to modify the below itinerary please ask us.

Day 1:  Florence to Panzano – 49km
Our guide will meet you in the morning at our bike rental shop in the heart of Florence.  After being fitted properly, you will hit the road!  Navigate the busy Florence streets during the early hours of your tour; once you leave the city, enjoy a lovely 49km to ride Panzano. After checking in to your hotel, you will have time to relax, refresh yourself, and explore the town.  Your luggage will be there when you arrive, so feel free to enjoy the pool and try the local Chianti before dinner.  Dinner is included tonight.

Day 2: Panzano to San Gimignano – 41km
Your second day in Tuscany centers around a ride along small, rolling back roads to San Gimignano, the city of towers.  Add on an additional 20km if you want a bit more time in the saddle.  Our historic hotel is right in the middle of the old town.  Dinner is included tonight.

Day 3:  San Gimignano to Siena – 59km
A glorious ride of traffic-free backcountry roads is in store for you today, with your journey culminating in Siena.  A beautiful, small city, Siena is at the heart of the region.  Dinner is on your own tonight, so enjoy exploring the old city in search of all the culinary delights Siena can offer.  Our hotel is inside the town gates and perfectly situated for easy exploration of Siena and the surrounding areas.

Day 4:  Siena to Florence or Rome
Sleep late, have a leisurely breakfast, and enjoy your final morning in Siena. You may depart for either Florence or Rome via train**.
