  • Day by Day

    1. Siena

    Individual arrival in Siena, superb medieval town. Easily distinguish it by old brick buildings and the crown of the city tower Torre del Mangia.

     

    2. Siena – Radda in Chianti (40 km)

    From Siena head north towards the beautiful village of Radda in Chianti. The remains of its ancient walls show the significance that this town had in the competition between Florence and Siena.  

     

    3. Radda in Chianti – Greve (30 km)

    Today you will discover Tuscany’s “road of wines”, where the famous Chianti Classico wine is produced. The route brings you to Greve pedalling through a lush green district with a countryside charm.

     

    4. Greve – Florence (45 km)

    You will cycle to Florence, Tuscany's capital known for its wealth in culture, architecture and art. This bustling metropolis is considered the birthplace of the Renaissance and upon your arrival you can immediately see hints of artisan decor embellished upon buildings and squares.

      Vacanza bella! Un susseguirsi di salite (alcune ripide) ed altrettante discese (allenante). Consigliata un po' di preparazione fisica o in assenza di questa bici elettrica .
      È superfluo aggiungere che gli scenari del Chianti sono fantastici per non parlare di Siena e Firenze.

      Vielen Dank für Deine nette Betreuung, das kompetente Service.
