Overview

Home to some of Italy’s all-time greatest cyclists such as Bartali, Bettini and Cipollini, Tuscany is one of our favorite European cycling destinations in Italy.

Our trip starts in Radda-in-Chianti, in the heart of the world famous Chianti wine region. From Chianti we head over to the remote western edge of Tuscany and the medieval hill-top towns of Volterra and San Gimignano.

The trip ends in the quintessential Tuscan town of Pienza and includes a ride to Monte Amiata, the highest point in Tuscany at 1700m!
