Bike Tour of Tuscany, Italy – August 31-September 7, 2018

$3,495.00

This tour captures the essence of the Italian experience including visits to Siena, Montalcino, Pienza, Montepulciano and Bagno Vignoni. We have selected absolutely stunning accommodations and include superb meals, wine tastings, and a personalized walking tour of Siena. You will be led by talented, engaging, and very experienced bilingual Italian guides, whose intimate knowledge of love of all things, places, and people Italian will assure that your vacation is a visual, culinary, and cultural delight.

We have taken great care to develop a tour that offers you the full pleasures of the enchanting Tuscan countryside as well as visits to a delightful collection of small villages and towns. We travel through vineyards, past olive groves, and along narrow ancient roads lined with cypress. We wander the narrow alleyways of tiny medieval villages like Murlo, Montisi, and Castlemuzio; listen as the monks chant at Sant’Antimo; relive movie scenes from “The English Patient” as we stroll the grounds of Santa Anna in Caprena; delight in a visit to the elegant Castello Banfi Estate and vineyards; and spoil ourselves on our last night at the 5-star spa hotel, Fonteverde.

*Single Travelers: A limited number of guaranteed private rooms are available on most tours at an additional cost. This cost is indicated on each tour page.

Single travelers willing to share a room will be charged an amount no greater than 50% of the guaranteed private room rate and this will be fully refunded if you end up sharing a room with another traveler. This cost is also indicated on each tour page.

The reason for these additional charges is that most of our inns charge Discovery Bicycle Tours by the room regardless of the number of occupants, but our per person tour rates are based on double occupancy. Therefore it costs Discovery Bicycle Tours substantially more to have only one occupant in a room. We do want to encourage single travelers and therefore absorb half of the additional cost to us when you end up in a private room without requesting it. You will note that on some tours there is no additional charge and this is because the inns on those tours are not charging Discovery Bicycle Tours.
