Luxury cycling vacation Italy

This is The Luxurious Cicloposse Bike tour in Tuscany the land of yearning. Since centuries the former European cultural center holds its many visitors spellbound.
Most tourists however, visit only the famous and much traveled region between Florence and Siena. We would like offer a bike tour to let you enjoy both treasures of southern Tuscany as Montalcino and Pienza and then ride into a vastly unknown, wild and remote tuscan region: Maremma, the Wild West of Tuscany. Do not forget the importance of wine: the famous Brunello and the Morellino, his little brother.

1

Welcome to Pienza

Meet at Chiusi-Chianciano train station (a stop on all major Florence-Rome lines). Transfer to Pienza, the most perfect Renaissance town in the world. Check into your rooms at our hotel. Meet your guides during a bike-fitting session. Get to know the rest of the group at dinner having a good supertuscan wine at La Bandita Townhouse restaurant

Montalcino & Brunello Wine

Today we'll start out on a long descent into the rolling green pastures of the Val d'Orcia, followed by a hearty uphill stretch that takes us to our reward: picturesque Bagno Vignoni. It's probably the only town you've ever seen where the main square is actually a thermal pool! Refreshed, we continue on to a secluded country Sant’Antimo Abbey, where we might be in time to hear the monks sing vespers. Five miles later we'll be pedaling through the fortress walls into Montalcino. Afterwards we'll have plenty of time to visit the town before come back via San Quirico d’orcia, another little jewel. Dinner at la foce Dopolavoro
Special Event: Brunello wine tasting
Total distance: 70 km/43 miles (shorter option 45 km/28 miles)

Orcia Valley & San Casciano dei Bagni Hot Springs

Today is a completely country ride: for the first 15 km you will ride downhill and after easy gentle rolling hills. You will see Radicofani medieval and enchanting village with a 1200 dating Rocca. After lunch at the hill town continue to Celle sul Rigo and San Casciano Bagni hot spring. The spa is very old and in town there is impressive town hall of renaissance time. Dinner at local resturant ”da Daniela”
Total Distance: 53 km/ 33 miles

Sorano & Sovana

Nice bike ride crossing minuscule villages and borgos. Highlight is Sorano, barely more than a handful of ancient homes gathered around the fortress which is partly occupied by La Fortezza. Erected in the 16th century by the Orsini family, the castle is one of the best surviving examples of Tuscan military architecture. As we all know, the main function of any fortress is to protect against marauding invaders - because of this, we can see for miles from any window in the hotel, across the valley of the Etruscans. After we will reach Sovana and enjoy the very comfortable hotel. Dinner in town.
Total Distance: 51 km/31,5 miles

Scansano & Pitigliano

Soon you will arrive at Pitigliano: a pristine warren of elegant palaces and surprisingly broad cobble stoned streets, it is nicknamed Tuscany's Little Jerusalem in honor of extremely active Jewish community that lived here for centuries. Two of the town's most interesting attractions are its wonderfully restored Synagogue. Back on saddle ride to Scansano. Set in a strategic position between Saturnia and the sea owes its fame to the breeze that blows in summer, making it a wonderfully cool and comfortable spot, as well as to the famous Morellino, a ruby red wine with a full bodied bouquet. Let’s enjoy the wine tasting and visit cellars at Erik Banti winery. Back in Sovana for our farewell dinner
Special event: Morellino wine tasting
Total Distance 45km/28 miles

Hi Giuliana and Marco Thank you for a fantastic holiday. We were really impressed with the organisation and thoroughly enjoyed the cycling. We had a lot of fun. We will definitely recommend you to others! Keep in touch with any new ideas you have for other trips. Many thanks and well done

Hi Giuliana: I just wanted to let you know that I enjoyed the bike trip in Maremma. As usual in Tuscany, there was good weather, good food and good people. I liked that part of Tuscany because there was less tourists and less traffic. The Tuscan countryside was beautiful. The best ride was on the last day from Scansano to Talamone, mostly downhill with good views of the landscape. So take care and maybe I will try another ride in the future.
