Biking through the gorgeous terrain of Tuscany, Italy, is one of life’s most magical and memorable leisure vacations any adult could take. The only thing that could make this any better is wine. Biking through Tuscany and sampling the different wines that Tuscan Wine Country has to offer is pure heaven.
Most bicycle tours allow you to bike at your own pace, taking in the sights and sounds, as well as beautiful smells in Tuscany. You’ll get to experience biking through vineyards and old winding roads, past old farm houses and majestic hills.
Along the way of the bike tour, you will be escorted to different wine tastings, where you will be able to sample the bounty of wine the land has to offer, try different delicacies and foods that your palate can only imagine, and enjoy a panoramic, scenic view of Tuscany while you enjoy your pairings. You will also be able to sample the different and various authentic Italian Olive oils the wineries have on hand.
Tuscan bike tours can be expensive or cost effective depending on which tour you choose to take. There are many, and with a simple Google search, you can find many different websites that detail various bike and wine tours. Most tour companies also offer safety equipment along with the bikes, such as helmets.
Biking through the countryside of Tuscany is well worth the expense you will pay to get there, and to enjoy. Be sure to bring a camera for photographic opportunities, which are around just about every wind in the road. Some tours allow one day tours, while others allow multi day and several day tours. These of course vary in price.
