Established routes will allow you to rely on accurate services and facilities that will ensure safety and quality. You may choose among several themed routes with roads suitable for bicycles rides such as nature, art, food and wine just to name a few.

Those who love the beauty of natural landscapes and wish to discover the essence of Tuscany, will choose the tours of the Siena region. Over 40 miles that unwind across the province of Siena alternating moments of solitude, in contact with nature, with visits to unique villages and medieval squares of great historic value and beauty. The ride is intense, with frequent changes of slope and altitude. This route is suitable for experienced cyclists as it goes through several challenging areas and the riding is fast-paced. However, if approached at a more relaxed pace, taking some long and overnight breaks, even the little-trained cyclists can enjoy this scenic and impressive route. The ride in Terre di Siena is ideal for those who want to enjoy a meditative journey, immersed in pristine nature, in the outdoor. Ideally, you should ride this route in stages; take the time to enjoy the region from sunrise to sunset, “save energy”, without “attacking” the slopes pedaling too hard.

Forests, hills, wheat fields, olive groves and vineyards will accompany you along fascinating paths, punctuated by short breaks, in small restaurants, or longer stops spent visiting ancient medieval villages, the local farms or the old buildings that line the crops on the hilly regions. Indulge in the pleasure of tasting the intense flavors of this land with its typical products, renowned in the world for their authenticity and genuineness. Cheese, meats, vegetables and a glass of local wine in the vineyards of the Vernaccia di San Gimignano, the Nobile di Montepulciano, the Brunello di Montalcino and the Chianti Classico, will accompany you in this journey through beauty and nature.
