Discover Tuscany Bike Tour
Tuscany offers an ideal scenario for cycling enthusiasts of all levels, from amateur cyclists to anyone just wishing to pedal calmly while enjoying the beauty of the region. Tuscany is typically a hilly region. For cycling fans, this means pushing yourself on the same hills many cycling legends trained, including Bartali, Cipollini and Bettini. Tuscany is in fact a land of cyclists and wherever you choose to go pedal you're likely to cross paths with many two-wheel aficionados.
