Know More about this tour
Feel the cool breeze on your face. Smell the sweet scents of pure nature through vineyards and olive groves. Relax to the quiet sounds of this ancient land. Taste the exciting flavors of Tuscan wines.
Discover the world of wine, riding a bike through the Tuscan countryside.
A once-in-a-lifetime experience that will let you enjoy a small-group exclusive wine tour in the most nature-oriented way: riding a bike through the gentle hills of Chianti wine region.
This professionally guided wine tour and fully supported bike ride in the Tuscan countryside begins with a comfortable shuttle transportation out of the busy city center. In about 25 minutes youll reach the starting point for your bike ride, immersed in the Chianti wine region.
Riding the bicycles, we will lead you along scenic countryroads hemmed in ancient olive groves and vineyards.
Tuscan hilltops and hillside villa estates are all part of the breathtaking panoramic views you will see as you ride your bike through the heart of Tuscany.
Stops for photo opportunities will be made along the way.
Half-way, a break will give you the opportunity to relax and enjoy a delicious picnic surrounded by nature: under the shades of cypresses, olive trees and oaks you will taste croissants and discover the magical flavor of one of Tuscan culinary treasures: bread with salt and extra-virgin olive oil, simplicity turned into a masterpiece for the senses.
You will visit two wineries, completely different in their settings and approach: a famous winery with its spectacular cellar, producing some of the most renowned Chianti wines, and a small fascinating boutique winery.
Learn the techniques of production, ageing, storing and bottling wine and olive oil.
Once back at the ride starting point, you will enjoy a typical Tuscan lunch in a restaurant, immersed in nature, tasting the incredible wines of the wineries you just visited (both wineries boast international recognitions and awards), and learning wine pairing.
The bike itinerary includes flat, downhill and uphill sections, to give you a complete variety of views and biking experiences.
Having a van always following the group, you can decide yourself how you want to approach the biking part of this experience. If you feel fit enough, you can join it as an intermediate level bike ride, with some interesting uphill sections. If you want to join it in a more relaxed mode, you can still enjoy most of the biking itinerary (just the flat and downhill sections), relying on the van assistance for the couple of short uphill parts.
Mileage: 10 miles round-trip (about 15 kms)
Terrain: Mostly paved back roads with little traffic, some white roads
Difficulty: INTERMEDIATE (can be done in EASY MODE, mostly downhill, using the minivan support to help in the few short uphill sections)

This was one of the highlights of our 10 day trip to Italy! If you are an active person and like being outside, you will love this! The landscape is everything you have seen in the pictures of Tuscany. If you are a novice bike rider or not in shape, you might have a hard time as it was very rigorous (for a 53 year old woman in fair/good shape). You can ride in the van if it gets to hard. The hills are very challenging! The meal afterwards was farm-fresh and absolutely delicious!
The Tuscany Bike Tour from Florence was fun. The shuttle bus took us to a location where we picked up our bikes and helmets. From here we left with our guide. The majority of the trip on was paved roads. There were some hills along the way, but the guide always waited for us. Toward the end of our trip, we did some off road trails to get to the winery. These trails were a little challenging as some of them were washed out. You always had the option to walk your bike, or hop in the van before the off road trails began. The wine tour was interesting. The snacks and countryside were wonderful. A short trip back into town for wine tasting and a delicious meal.
Despite it being 42 degrees, we had an amazing time on this bike ride through Tuscany. The actual ride is just a couple of hours, with the van helping to get you to on additional winery. The guides were helpful and friendly and shared lots of knowledge about Tuscany and wine. A great way to see Italy! Just a note, there is a section of the ride that's about 15 minutes of gradual uphill cycling, as well as about 15 minutes of off-road biking over rocks.
My family of 4 were looking forward for a day outside of Florence in Tuscany. It was beautiful and the Vineyard tour was amazing. We did have a great time. We wish we knew the biking was more OFF road on rock paths vs on road or grass/gravel paths!! FYI, The Bikes were run down.and 3 bikes on our tour had problems breaking down. One bike could not be fixed in the field so it was taken away in the van with my husband! The water bottles were used and not new so bring your own!. We still had lots of fun but my husband was in the van more than on his bike, Bummer
Fantastic way to experience Tuscany!
This experience was well worth the money. We landed up being the only people on this tour which made it even better.
The weather was amazing and our guide was very knowledgeable. The wine and the food were amazing!!! The views spectacular.
Good trip, I was expecting to see more than one vineyard but it was only one The food at the end was good, nothing exceptional.
The road was easy, with few stops to take some pictures.
Great guide called Johnny. Lovely to see the countryside from a bicycle enthusiast who had lots of local knowledge. Loved the explanation of the wines and food. My only recommendation would be that the bicycles could have more comfortable seats.
Really disappointed by this tour. Bike issues - tires not inflated, brakes not adjusted. Route was rough road or busy road - could have been much better given the options in Tuscany. A few people wouldn't ride on the busy road because they were uncomfortable.
The guide got in the van because she didn't want to do the uphill. Lunch was OK but not exceptional. Sorry to say - I can't recommend this trip.
Great tour with Olimpia as our knowledgeable and friendly tour guide! She was extremely helpful and friendly, and did not judge us when we were struggling up some hills hahaha. The tour was just slightly strenuous but it felt good to be active. The tour of the vineyard/winery was interesting and beautiful. The buffet lunch that followed the bike tour was delicious.
Thank you for a great day, Olimpia!
