An unforgettable experience

Cycling is undoubtedly the best way to discover the wonders of Chianti: no noise, no smog, only you and the wind in your hair. And rows of vineyards, olive trees, country churches, wheat fields, small villages.

Even better if the tour is done with e-bikes and therefore you will not last any effort!

The tour, accompanied by a professional tour leader, will start from Florence city center and the first stop will be the amazing panoramic point of view, Piazzale Michelangelo, a large square with a spectacular terrace overlooking the city, its river and its bridges.

Then the tour will lead you outside the city through the wonders of the Chianti countryside, world-known for its beauties and flavours. This unique experience will take you to the centre of the nature. You will discover everything about the production of the two most precious treasures of this area: olive oil and wine.

In fact you will visit an ancient olive oil mill and also a cellar of a boutique winery and in both places you will have the chance to taste their products.

Crown your experience by enjoying a relaxing and savory typical Tuscan lunch with fresh products and of course more Chianti wine!

During your bike ride back to Florence, you will have the opportunity to take beautiful pictures that you will show to your friends once you return home.

Giving yourself a moment of pause, you'll be able to make a stop at an old aristocratic estate and have a look at their olive oil mill. There, you'll be accompanied on a tour of the grounds where a mixture of the old and new come together perfectly. You'll learn everything there is to know about creating olive oil. After that, a sample of their high quality olive oil will show you the amazing flavors that arise from their dedication and hard work.
