Tuscany awaits you with one of the most impressive landscapes in Europe, thanks to its hills with picturesque vineyards, olive slopes and cypress avenues.
While cycling you will enjoy diverse views and admire Renaissance art and architecture. Tuscany is also the land of numerous artists, such as Leonardo da Vinci or Giacomo Puccini. Cities like Pisa or Florence need no further presentation, but you will also discover beautiful castles and villages where you can taste Tuscan cuisine.
Please note: Compared to most of our other tours, this one goes more through cultural than natural landscapes. The Pisa – Florence region is beautiful, highly praised and immensely interesting. However, it is also relatively densely built-up. Are you looking for history and culture in free nature – you are exactly right here. Are you looking for rest and relaxation? Maybe take a look at our trip from Venice along the Adriatic?
