When two families came to us to explore Tuscany, we created an itinerary that gave them the adventure they were looking for.

Easy daily riding with plenty of time for seeing the sights, experiencing the history and spending time immersed in the local culture.

We added some extraordinarily good restaurants for amazing food and wine.
With comfy hotels at the end of the day to relax and spend time together.

Tuscany, here they come. Andiamo!

HOW MUCH RIDING DO I HAVE TO DO?

As much or as little as you want. It’s your holiday.  You determine how much you want to ride. You can, on any day, choose to cut a ride short, miss a climb, only do the downhills, have a rest day or ask for more!  The van is always handy if you choose not to ride, and a guide is always willing to do some extra distance if you wish. You just need to ask.

DO YOU REWARD REGULAR GUESTS?
