You are sitting in a cozy tavern, letting the bike day ease to a close. You honestly deserve the spaghetti al pesto, and with it you are enjoying a smooth glass of Chianti. These are sure signs you're on your way through Tuscany - the Italian jewel of landscape and the culture. Often surprisingly a wonderful castle or a stylish villa emerges from behind the woods surrounded by silvery green olive groves and the violet of the lilies. Tuscany has always been a magic place for people all around the world.

To experience this landscape with its immense cultural heritage by bike is an unforgettable sensation. Again and again the biking tourist is confronted with wonderful historical monuments as well as a typical Tuscan landscape that offers an ambiance where you can enjoy seclusion.
