We take a classic route along the famous Strada in Chianti (Road in Chianti).

Explore the Piazza of Impruneta, (the “Citta di Cotto”) where the tiles for Florence’s Cathedral were created. Leaving Impruneta on bike we access Strada in Chianti and its rolling hills, passing vineyards and olive groves. We arrive in Greve in Chianti with a lunch stop with our good friend Tina (top local wine and cheese gourmet) at Café Le Logge. After lunch we offer an optional ride or van transfer to Radda in Chianti. Of course your bags will be transferred ahead and waiting in your room. Free night for dinner. Overnight Radda in Chianti.

Wine and olive oil tasting included on this day as we make our way back into Florence. Today you will ride a dramatic ridge route often included in the Giro D’Italia professional tour okay so maybe not at the same speed but at least you will have time to take in the breath taking panoramas.
