There is nothing as unique and romantic as enjoying the sunset among vineyards and olive groves. Our sunset bike tour is the perfect way to experience the Tuscan countryside and to escape the Florence crowds. All our participants are supplied and fitted with bikes and safety helmets and our guide will tend to your every need. Before taking to the bike there will be a bicycle orientation and tour safety talk. Your experience will begin with a wine tasting in a castle located in the heart of Chianti Colli Fiorentini. The bike ride will be mainly downhill except for one 1.2km (0.6 miles) steep uphill where optional van support is available. Riding your bicycle through old Tuscan villages and admiring the famous rolling hills with the warm light of the sunset is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
