Florence: Cycling Activity Holiday
City of Stone
It is possible to book an arranged and fully escorted biking holiday in Tuscany, of which there is a variation of routes that you can choose from. Most are seven-day tours that stop off in different locations, where you can stay in an array of lovely quaint hotels while you relax after a long day’s cycling. Cycle tours in Florence take different routes, but Tuscany to Umbria is popular as the rolling hills of the wine regions, ancient little towns and sweeping countryside offer some of the best views in all of Europe.
You can visit Monteriggiono, a stunning little walled town, and then you can travel on to Siena, a delightful place built over three ridges and encased by a high wall. The countryside of Le Crete is perfect for bike lovers, as is Pienza, as well as the wine towns of Montalcino and the famous Chianti itself. Some bike tours in Florence (Tuscany) offer wine tasting days out also. A week’s cycling holiday in Florence and its surrounding countryside start at around 1600 euros but there are extras on top, such as room costs and transfers. Tuscany is known for being expensive but it doesn’t put practiced cyclists off; people return here year after year as the scenery is utterly compelling.
