Florence to Rome Bicycling - Trip Overview
"Renaissance to Empire "

In the region between these two magnificent cities numerous tales abound. You cycle point-to-point along quiet roads and off the beaten track, yet you are still ensured of seeing or staying in the most fascinating desitinations along the way. Follow this road that leads you through the unfolding of its layered history. Travel from Florence to Rome in a way most only dream of experiencing.




Days 1-2: Chianti & Siena:
Ride into the heart of Tuscany along the "Strada Chianti," lined by oak groves, vineyards and quaint villages leading to Siena and its beautiful "II Campo" Square.

Days 3-4: Surreal Landscapes & Medieval Spa Towns:
The Etruscans lived splendidly well before the Romans. See how, then end the day in an ancient spa and sample the peccorino cheese of Pienza.

Days 5-6: Orvieto and the Papal Empire:
Explore medieval villages, gothic architecture and Italy's largest volcanic lake as you glide along paths lined by chestnut trees and past remote towns precariously spilling from the cliffside.

Days 7-8: Old World Hospitality and Roma:
The castle-laden countryside varies: rolling hills, extinct volcanoes, high tufa cliffs and dense forest lead us to the core of Ancient and Papal Rome where we leave you to explore on your own.
