Bike tour Cortona, bike trip Montepulciano
Easy bike ride: we start with a 6 km downhill from Montepulciano town and across the Valdichiana valley to get to the famous Cortona.
28 miles / 45 km – All flat with one final climb.
In Montepulciano, from here we start our pleasant five-mile descent through the vineyards, where the only sound is the wind in our hair. Plunge into some of the most beautiful vineyards in Tuscany. Enjoy this charmed land of rounded hilltops covered with vineyards and acres of sunflowers bathed in pastel sunlight. Relaxed and glowing, it’s time to set off on a long, slow climb towards Cortona, the delightful hilltown made famous by Frances Mayes in her bestselling novel Under the Tuscan Sun. After lunch at a local trattoria, we’ll stroll around Cortona’s pristine medieval streets….and then if we’re up for it, we’ll sail downhill – Back to Montepulcianio by van.
Carbon frame race bike, hybrid & high-end E-bike are offered… you just choose
