Countryside bike tour in Mugello with tasting


Explore the authentic Tuscan countryside off the beaten track and discover a true corner of paradise

by  mugellove

Experience the natural beauty of the Tuscan countryside around Vicchio in the best way possible: by bicycle! 

After a brief stroll through the medieval village, where renowned artists such as Giotto and Beato Angelico spent their youth, and around the picturesque lake, we'll embark on our cycling journey along the tranquil country roads of Mugello. This region holds significance as the birthplace of the Medici family. Along our route, we'll visit a Romanesque parish church, a villa from the Medici era, and we will pass by the hill where Giotto's birthplace stands. Throughout the trip, you'll be surrounded by nature and the typical Tuscan landscape. 

We'll make stops to taste local products, allowing you to discover the uniqueness of the crops, livestock, and local cuisine, offering insights into the peasant culture that has characterized this area for centuries.
