Full description

Immerse yourself in the beauty of the Tuscan countryside, a unique environment famous for its laughing nature, the tranquillity of its rolling hills and theexcellence of its food and wine, sought after all over the world.

Enjoy an e-bike tour together with an environmental guide, starting in the Chianti hills around Florence and arriving in the splendid village of San Gimignano, aUNESCO heritage site for its medieval architecture.

In between, you will ride along sections of the Via Francigena, on an itinerary that combines history, nature and tradition. The experience will culminate with an excellent tasting of locally produced wine and extra virgin olive oil.

E-bikes, pedal-assisted bikes, will make the 40 km route suitable also for those who are not particularly well trained.

What we will do

We will meet in the centre of Florence at around 8.30 a.m. (scheduled departure at 9 a.m.). We will meet the guides and the rest of the group (2 to 7 participants) and move by van to the starting point. There we will be handed our e-bikes, and after a briefing on their use and the route, we will be ready to set off.

We will immerse ourselves in the Tuscan countryside, enjoying the gentle slopes of its hills and the view of the many vineyards and olive groves we will encounter along the way. We will admire noble residences, typical farms and incredible views, stopping often to take photographs.

The 40 km route will be mostly away from traffic, in the green of nature and the countryside, and will take us to San Gimignano, the ancient UNESCO heritage town. The last stretch will be uphill, but perfectly manageable for everyone, thanks to the aid of pedal assistance. Once in the village, we will have 45 minutes to visit the historical centre and stop for lunch (not included in the price) or in one of its renowned ice-cream parlours.

Afterwards, we will re-board the van to return to Castello di Poppiano, where the Guicciardini family will welcome us for a tour of the estate and a wine and extra-virgin olive oil tasting. The guide will take us back to Florence by 5 pm.

Who it is aimed at

This activity is at an intermediate level. It is suitable for families, couples, groups of friends, individuals and anyone who is able to tackle a 40 km route by bike, considering that pedalling is facilitated by the electric motor of the e-bikes. The minimum recommended age is 10 years.
