Tuscany Biker

Days 1-2: Chianti Classico Farm Stay:
From a beautifully restored Tuscan farmhouse/winery, bike along quiet roads to the three villages that formed the Chianti Alliance centuries ago. Visit the forgotten abbeys and hamlets then enjoy a private winery tour and taste their supple reds, fresh honeys and rich olive oil then relax by the vanishing edge pool spilling into the countryside of endless vineyards.

Days 3-5: Abbeys, Saffron & Pilgrim Trails:
Soft, colorful, rolling hills of vineyards and sunflowers provide the backdrop to pre-Roman Etruscan remnants on your route to San Gimignano’s Medieval Skyscrapers.
