Vineyards and a small village on rolling hills in Tuscany

Do you want to see classic Italy – this tour of Tuscany could not be better! The cycle tour with Eurobike offers so many highlights for fans of ‘la Dolce Vita’. Be it the picturesque landscape of the ancient culture of central Italy. This cycle tour really leaves no part of Tuscany unturned. Of course, a trip to Florence, the capital of Tuscany, is also part of the programme. In the evenings you can relax with a glass of Vino on the terrace of your feel-good hotel, feel true holiday happiness!

A bike tour in the heart of Italy is perfect from spring onwards. Tuscany, with its mild temperatures is perfect for a holiday away from the crowds of tourists. Even more so when you are travelling by bike! Take this chance for a summer cycling break until October. In total you will cover around 240 kilometres, all in the beautiful landscape of Italy’s picture perfect region.

  • Gems of Italian cities: Florence, Lucca, San Gimignano or Vinci – names that are music to the ears. Use your time in these historic cities for strolling, shopping or culture spotting.
  • 4-star Grand Hotel Croce di Malta: In Montecatini your holiday accommodation is just a few steps away from the spa and village centre. The dreamlike pool is just perfect for a cooling dip after a long bike ride.
  • Welcome shortcuts by train and bus: Trips to further away cities such as Florence, Lucca and Monte Pisani are easily shortened by bus and train. Of course the Eurobike team also organises this for you!

For casual cyclists who like to cycle in their spare time, the Tuscany tour is perfect! Everyday you spend between 40 and 55 kilometres cycling on secondary roads and country lanes. Some basic fitness is needed, because although the landscape is stunning, it is also hilly. Longer distances, such as the return trip from Lucca or Vinci, are made by bus and train. Thanks to Eurobike’s extensive travel material, you’ll know what to expect every day before you leave.
