From Florence to Orvieto.

A cycling poetry between Tuscany and Umbria, Chianti and Val d'Orcia.

From Florence to Orvieto.

Best Tuscany bike tour / From the Chianti hills of Florence to the poetry of Val d'Orcia, the heart of Tuscany, and one of the world's most beloved landscapes. The magic of San Casciano de Bagni and the tuff cliffs of Orvieto and its Duomo. One last little digression to Civita di Bagnoregio with its crumbling cliffs.

Steps&stops of our Tuscany bike tours: Florence, Greve in Chianti, Siena, Asciano, San Giovanni d’Asso, Pienza, Sarteano, San Casciano de Bagni, Allerona, Orvieto, Civita di Bagnoregio

Travel Highlights / The trip retraces the surprising Italian Pilgrimage that Joseph and Elizabeth Pennel made in 1884. From Florence to Rome they pedaled, pushing the tandem tricycle that they'd brought by train from England. They chose this route because they considered it a "sure guarantee of beauty". And that's still the case! Four days of travel by bike, from the Chianti Hills of Florence to Siena; from Chianti Classico in Pienza, and from Val d’Orcia to Umbria, stopping in Orvieto, the city standing on cliffs of tuff; moving on from Civita di Bagnoregio, and then to Alviano lake.
