The riding is spectacular, with rolling terrain, gorgeous views and some advanced hills … all a breeze on an e-bike. This tour has been refined over more than 15 years and offers you the full pleasures of the enchanting Tuscan countryside and a delightful collection of small villages and towns.
You travel through vineyards, past olive groves, and along narrow ancient roads lined with cypress. 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 you stroll the grounds of Santa Anna in Caprena; delight in a visit to the elegant Castello Banfi Estate and vineyards; and spoil yourself on your last night … at the 5-star spa hotel, Fonteverde.
Abundant regional produce, wild game, local mushrooms, olive oil, pecorino cheese, local truffles, and homemade pastas, all complemented with the finest local wines (and a superb wine tasting event!) assures that you will be treated to the finest regional cuisine imaginable.
The hotels are quite exquisite. Each was carefully selected … not only for its superior quality but also to ensure that you are always staying within the city walls so you can stroll the narrow streets, visit the shops, see the sights at your leisure, and immerse yourself in all the day-to-day Italian experiences that make this a true adventure.
