If you like cycling and admiring beautiful landscapes we will take you from the most famous wine area in Tuscany to the fantastic hilltop town known as the “Manhattan of the middle ages”. You will ride between vineyards and olive groves with beautiful views of the rolling Tuscan hills. Plenty of breathtaking photo stops will allow you to take in the incredible historic villages. When you think it’s all over, the best part is still to come: a 45-minute stroll in the famous 14 towered town - a UNESCO world heritage site. At the end of the tour a wine tasting will complete the best day of your vacation in Italy.
