The Crossing Chianti to Siena one day bike tour guides you through some of the most stunning scenery, vineyards and panoramic views that Tuscany has to offer while pedaling through back roads and small towns before ending at its final destination: Siena.
After the morning pick-up by our guide and support van you will be heading out of the city towards the open spaces of the Chianti landscape wherein only minutes you are far away from the busy historic center. Immersed in the colors, fragrances and natural beauty of Tuscany, your day of adventure begins.
Elena & Piero whisk you off to the picture-perfect small town of San Donato in Poggio, where you can wander the pretty streets, get a cappuccino at the local coffee bar and take a few photos.
Then quick van transfer to Castellina in Chianti. Explore the town square, the arched passages from the medieval times, hidden boutiques, art galleries, and wine shops before being fitted for you quality touring bike and safety equipment. The pedaling portion starts with a breathtaking view of the hills covered in rows of vineyards, olive groves, cypress trees and when in season, poppies and wildflowers in the spring and sunflowers in July.
Coasting along a gentle, scenic road, we cycle thru Fonterutoli, a small antique hamlet owned by the same noble family since 1435 and more than 23 generations! We continue to pedal, passing vineyards and olive groves till we come to Lornano, the home to one of Siena's bishops in the 14 century - a true piece of history! We will stop here to visit the wine cellar in the villa, follow your host as they explain the various steps to producing great wine and then savor their extra virgin olive oil as well as their wine production in a guided tasting.
After this wonderfully satisfying tasting experience, we venture forth for the last leg of the biking tour through the famous Siena hills of Chianti. There are several photo opportunities along the way where you can stop, admire and capture the essence of Tuscany, its traditions, history, and charm.
