Holiday Information

An easy paced road cycling holiday in Italy that explores one of the country's premier cycling destinations. Tuscany - the word itself is evocative, conjuring images of classic Italian landscapes, rolling hills, cypress trees and medieval hilltop towns.
The region also offers superb cycling and is an international training ground, attracting riders from all over the world. Cycling is a way of life here and is taken seriously. We spend our first evening in the charming medieval town of Casciana Terme, a spa town retreat scattered with great restaurants.
The following morning we head south through the olive groves to the atmospheric twin castled hilltop town of San Gimignano a fascinating 'town of towers' and one of the best preserved medieval settlements in Italy.
Moving onwards we ride into the Parco della Val d’Orcia, a World Heritage site with a distinctive landscape of conical hills rising from the flat chalk plains. Wine lovers will be in their element as the tour progresses and we’ll be spending evenings in both Chianti region and Montalcino where we will set time aside for a glass or two of Classico and Brunello. Travelling north again through the land which lays between Siena and Florence we head for the atmospheric twin castled hilltop town of Volterra. On our final day on the bikes we return to Casciana Terme in good time to take advantage of the town's soothing thermal waters.
