In the countryside south of Florence, visiting the agri-tourism farms in the Chianti Colli Fiorentini Consortium. An unforgettable Chianti bike tour experience exploring the world's most famous vineyards, enjoying tastings of local wines and Tuscan dinners.
Florence, San Polo in Chianti, Figline Val d’Arno, Strada in Chianti, Impruneta, Montebuoni, San Casciano Val di Pesa, San Pancrazio, Certaldo, Tavarnelle, Montespertoli, Montelupo Fiorentino.
The powerful bond between the Renaissance city and its wine has held sway since the days when vineyards reached right up to the city gates. And it is right from the gates of Dante's city that this Italian VeloTour departs. A loop of over 200 kilometers that lets you set off from wherever you'd like. We'll do according to the Medici Villa of Lilliano, with daily excursions of varying lenght and difficulty.
Roads sketched out by the landscape, in places left unpaved to leave the natural harmony intact. Pedaling through these places, you become part of nature – there is a shift in your relationship with time and space, with the things and people you encounter. Pedaling among Sangiovese as it grows, in an alternating cycle of climbs and descents, but the loveliness of the places helps you shake off any fatigue. There's no shortage of chances to stop and visit a farm or small parish church, or to contemplate the profile of this magical slice of the planet that, allow us to brag, the rest of the world envies. This is our charming Chianti bike tour.
