Cycle from the iconic leaning tower of Pisa to the Ponte Vecchio in Florence, passing through beautiful Tuscan landscape that inspired artists and composers such as Leonardo da Vinci and Puccini. The gentle cycling is mainly along riverside paths and quiet roads, and there are the opportunities to lengthen the rides, or take the train at some stages to spend extra time at your destinations. Enjoy a free day in the romantic city of Florence and take some time to visit the sights in one of the world's most stunning cities!

Day 1: Arrive in Pisa

Make your own way to Pisa. This UNESCO World Heritage city is known all over the world for the iconic leaning tower, but it is also home to beautiful Renaissance piazze, Romanesque buildings and renowned art galleries.

Day 2: Pisa to Lucca 30km/19mi or 45km 28mi

Pedal northwards along the beautiful River Serchio. If you want to extend your route, cycle towards Lake Massaciuccoli before reaching the Renaissance town of Lucca. Encircled by its perfectly preserved city walls, the town is also the birthplace of the great composer, Puccini and concerts are held here every night in his honour.
Breakfast included

Day 3: Lucca to Montecatini Terme 45km/28mi

Cycle towards Collodi and the own of Pescia. In Collodi, where the author of Pinocchio spent his childhood, you can visit the famous Pinocchio's Park and the aristocratic Villa Garzoni. In Pescia, stroll around the town, discovering churches, mansions and its quiant local flower market, before heading to Montecatini Terme.
Breakfast included

Day 4: At Montecatini Terme (Optional 60km/38mi)

Enjoy a free day to explore one of the most famous spa towns in Europe. Take the cable-railway to the top of the hill or stroll around the Old Town.

Breakfast included

Day 5: Montecatini Terme to Florence 50km/31mi or 65km/40mi

You have two choices today; either cycle directly from Montecatini, or take a short train transfer to Pistoia, a city rich in Romanesque and Renaissance monuments, boasting one of the most evocative squares in Italy: Piazza del Duomo. From here, cycle through the Tuscan flatland to Florence.
Breakfast included

Hotels , Pisa to Florence

We use 3 star hotels throughout, all en suite. The hotels are chosen for their excellent facilities and proximity to the relevant local sites. All rooms have en suite facilities and air conditioning. Please specify whether you would prefer a double or twin room when booking.

Eating & Drinking

All breakfasts are included. However, please note that the typical Italian breakfast is light and often consists of a cup of coffee and a cream-filled or jam-filled croissant. It is always advisable to visit a local shop or supermarket before riding to pick up water and snacks for the day. Suggestions of what to do for lunch and dinner are given in the information material provided. Tuscan food is based around the notion of cucina povera, or 'poor cooking'. Simple, inexpensive meals are made using fresh, high-quality, local ingredients to bring out the natural flavours. Dishes are traditionally hearty and you will find mouth-watering soups and stews made with beans and local meats appearing on all menus, paired with a glass of the local Chianti of course! Tuscany is famous for its truffles, mushrooms and homegrown olive oil, and you will also find a variety of delicious breads as an accompaniment to most meals. It is impossible to offer an exhaustive list of suggestions for 'must-try' dishes, but here are a few recommendations: Panzanella - a cold bread salad made using the simple ingredients of unsalted bread, tomatoes, red onions, basil, olive oil, vinegar and salt Lardo di Colonnata - cured meat generally served as a starter Cacciucco - fish stew, or soup Lampredotto - a stew using the fourth stomach of a cow, cooked in a broth and often found served as street food Castagnaccio - a traditional cake made with chestnut flour Wine lovers will be spoilt for choice, and each town generally has its own wine, so if the choice becomes overwhelming, it is simple enough to go for the vino della casa (house wine) which will likely be a delicious Tuscan table wine.
