What we will do

We will meet the guide in Florence at 9:15 am. We will proceed to hand over the bikes, hold an introductory briefing and be ready to saddle up for our tour of the Chianti hills and Fiesole.

After passing through the historical centre of Florence, we will ride along the Arno River until we reach the foot of Monte Ceceri, at the top of which lies the beautiful town of Fiesole, surrounded by lush woods and ancient villas, which also offers one of the best views of Florence.

We will make a stop in the piazza and then continue in an easterly direction to reach the Chianti wine area. After a ride through the vineyards, we will stop at a local trattoria where we will enjoy a mouth-watering lunch!

The next stop will be aChianti winery. Here we will have a guided tour to discover the secrets of processing grapes to make wine, which we can taste and perhaps buy to take home as a nice souvenir of the day.

The route back to Florence will be mostly downhill, through woods, fields, farms and castles. By 4.30 p.m. we will be back at the base and the guide will greet us, giving us advice on the best places to enjoy an ice cream or an aperitif in Florence.

The total duration of the activity will be about 7 hours during which we will cover a distance of 35 km.
