A bicycle tour of Tuscany: cycle along back roads lined with stone walls, passing medieval castles, vineyards, and hillside villa estates, while the sun streams through leaves and branches leaving the road ahead dappled in sunlight and shade. Miles of open roads weave through ancient hillside towns leading to the final destination – a vineyard where wine tasting and strolling through the olive groves occupy a few relaxing hours before lunch at a local trattoria. Bread drizzled with olive oil, followed by fresh pasta, and wine are served and devoured before the long ride back to Florence.

Spend other Tuscan days exploring one of the many hillside towns less populated by tourists and more by old stone churches and bustling traditional market days where leisurely days can be spent walking through the hills and drinking wine from local vineyards as long days come to an end. Or a trip south to the coast which can include days spent on the beach sun bathing, sailing, or exploring the local Renaissance architecture.
