Siena Bike Tour
Siena Bike Tour offers a quicker, wider and more enjoyable approach to visiting the city and it’s territory: Chianti, Crete Senesi, Val di Merse, Val d'Orcia, Val d'Arbia outside of the usual places that are found on picture postcards.
With our assisted pedaling bicycles it is possible to reach sites of scenic and cultural interest that would be too difficult, or too distant, to access on foot.
We have also created ad hoc routes that you can follow independently or by taking advantage of our Tour Leaders.
Our bicycle tour philosophy is designed to offer a pleasant mix of relative physical effort and enjoyment of culinary delights together with a comprehensive visit to Siena, Unesco World Heritage Site, and its surrounding territory.
We would like everyone to enjoy the attractions of the architecture, history, culture, scenery and gastronomy of this area so that at the end of the holiday you don’t remember just "that wine", "that climb", "that Church", but remember "the wine drunk at the farm next to the wonderful church that made the effort to get there worthwhile".
Our guided tours in the lands of Siena have been carefully planned and drawn up to offer tours which visit typical and important ancient monuments such as the Cistercian Abbey of San Galgano with nearby Montesiepi and it’s Sword in the Stone; Montalcino and the Abbey of Sant'Antimo founded by Charlemagne; Pienza, the ideal city built by Pope Pius II Piccolomini; the Archicenobio of Monteoliveto Maggiore built in the desert of Crete or the hidden gems of the Hermitage of San Leonardo al Lago, the Parish Church of San Polo in Rosso or the Romanesque cloister of Torri.
The roadways that we travel are the Eroica and the Via Francigena, the Lauretana and the Cassia. The places we meet along the routes are among the oldest and most renowned in the area (some equipped for the comfort of the rider) and the food and wine is either home or locally produced.
Our itineraries are carefully studied to bring together the best that our region offers to the traveler: Landscape, History, Art, Culture and Wine & Food.
