Full description

Discover the wonders of the Chianti region on a bike tour accompanied by a local guide. Immerse yourself in the Tuscan countryside, its green vegetation and the charm of the ancient wine-making tradition.

Suitable for everyone and not too demanding, this activity is designed for those who want to spend a relaxing day in the open air. We will start at Castello di Poppiano, a medieval castle just outside Florence, admire Certaldo, birthplace of the famous poet and writer Boccaccio, and visit San Gimignano, the site of a small Etruscan village dating back to the 3rd century B.C. and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

To end on a high note, we will return to Castello di Poppiano where an oil and wine tasting will be waiting for us!

What we will do

We will meet in the historical centre of Florence at around 8:30 a .m. (scheduled departure at 9:00 a.m.). Once the group has gathered (from 2 to 7 people) the minibus will take us to Castello di Poppiano where we will be given bikes and helmets (included in the participation fee) and explained the safety rules to follow during the tour.

From Castello di Poppiano we will take the minibus to the starting point of the tour. The route is mainly downhill on asphalt roads that will allow us to enjoy the panorama of the Tuscan countryside without tiring too much. We will cycle for about 16 km surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, obviously with the necessary stops to take magnificent photographs.

For the final stretch we will board the minibus that will take us to San Gimignano, arrive around lunchtime and have an hour and a half for a meal (not included in the price) and to visit the town. Once the tour is over, the minibus will take us back to Castello di Poppiano for a tasting of local wine and olive oil.

Return to Florence is scheduled for 5 pm. The activity has a total duration of approximately 8 hours.
