Cycling holidays in Florence and Chianti
Florence – the city of the Tuscany region, widely known and appreciated for its incredible beauty, rich cultural and historical heritage, but also amazing and picturesque landscapes, making it one of the most desirable destinations in the world. Strolling along the streets and alleys where once walked Dante, Michelangelo, Donatello and Leonardo can’t makes you see why this gorgeous city is often called the world capital of art.

You get picked up at your accommodation and spend about half of the day visiting attractions like Cascine park, Piazza Signoria, Palazzo Vecchio, Michelangelo's David and many more , something that would take you about 3 times longer if you were on foot. You will also have time to relax or get a cup of coffee.
For those who want to experience more than just the city itself and make off to the countryside, there is the Chianti Mountain Bike Tour. Located only a few kilometers from Florence is the wonderful Chianti, a place of breath-taking landscapes’, green hills, vineyards and narrow country roads. It is a real little oasis away from the city buzz, where you can try local food and extraordinary Chianti wine; a perfect place to relax and take some of the most beautiful pictures.
There is also Tuscany Bike Tour that includes biking through the Tuscany countryside, visiting the Chianti castle Castiglionhio, guided wine tasting, relaxing by the swimming pool and having a lunch made of some the best food specialties of the area.
