Tuscany Bike Tours

If you’re looking for a biking holiday in Tuscany in 2015 then GustoCycling are here to help you. There are range of biking routes passing through beautiful countryside and famous Italian cities. Bike tours have been around a long time and are generally chosen for the pleasure, sense of adventure and autonomy, rather than for sport or exercise. And while some bike tours are designed to cover an area over the span of a day, many tours take many days, or even weeks and months, and can cover a whole country or take you across the world. A bike tour of the Tuscany region is a great way to experience an area widely known for its artistic legacy, traditional history, landscapes and unchanged medieval architecture. Located in the central region of Italy, its capital, Florence, is a World Heritage site. Other World Heritage sites in this region of Italy include Siena, The Cathedral of Pisa, San Gimignano, Pienza, Val d’Orci, and Medici Villas and Gardens. Considered the birthplace of The Renaissance, Tuscany is also home to over 120 nature reserves, and known for its museums and vineyards.
