We start this one-day bike tour with air-conditioned van transport from Florence through the amazing landscape of Chianti Classico, stopping for a few great photos of the tower town San Gimignano in the distance. While moving forward to our first destination we can dedicate some time to enjoying a real cappuccino made in Chianti! Our first town visit is the picturesque Castellina in Chianti. Here we will have plenty of opportunity to explore the cobbled stone streets and the castle tower of this enchanting town. Upon request, you can even indulge in a glass of Chianti & Vernaccia wine with Tuscan salami and pecorino cheese or a cup of gelato, this latter definitly must-do for kids! These are the best ways to energize before starting to cycle!
This is the perfect tour for those who really want to fully explore the tower town of San Gimignano, love the idea of biking, enjoying the flavors & scenery of Tuscany but aren't sure they are ready for too much pedaling, are travelling with children (min.age 12 y.o.), especially with our all you can eat gelato stop.
After a short introductory visit of Castellina, we begin the biking part of the tour. Our path will take us on a gorgeous, traffic-free road in Chianti. Along the road, you will be surrounded and seduced by the typical fragrances of the Mediterranean including wild rosemary and sage, pine wood, cypress, juniper and so much more. We promise a "scent"-sational experience!
We make use of a very beautiful road heading downhill through vineyards, forests, fields and little villages. This itinerary allows for plenty of time to appreciate the views and take many lovely photos. Once we come to the end of the biking portion of the tour, we put away our bikes, hop on the support van which will take you to San Gimignano, an ancient village famous for its towers, medieval atmosphere, and the much coveted UNESCO World Heritage Site nomination.
Use your free time to thoroughly visit the town and have lunch. Piero & Elena will provide a map of the village as well as the best recommendations for a delicious Tuscan lunch + best home-made gelato!
The tour ends with a van transfer back to Florence.
