Tuscany

Cycling enthusiasts, Tuscany is yours for the taking. As soft as its light, as elegant as its cypresses, as refined as its olive oil — it’s all about seduction. And the wheels of your bicycle are the perfect match for the rolling Tuscan landscapes. Grace—be it Botticelli’s Venus or Raphael’s madonnas—is ever present. Feast your eyes on enchanting Florence and Siena, where the fieldwork reveals reds and browns in all their glory. Finally, what could be more seductive than a slow passeggiata followed by a delicate Chianti? Who could say no to that? Consider yourself warned: Tuscany is truly irresistible!
