Overview

Full Day Bike Tour of Chianti Classico, a day on horseback between Chianti and Tuscany landscapes.

This professionally guided Tuscan bike tour through the famous Chianti Classico countryside outside of Florence takes you through olive groves, vineyards, medieval castles, hilltop villa estates, Italian gardens and ancient wine cellars.

This is a great day to spend away from the crowds and noise of the city, learn about local life and agriculture, and have fun with our trusted guides!

The property you will visit has been for centuries owned by an ancient Florentine noble family and is still managed by them.

The ancient cellars are located under the beautiful Villa and the Italian gardens that we will visit, as well as take a look at the Orciaiaia, a room full of giant terracotta vases where since Roman times wine and oil have been stored, and the Frantoio, the facility where the olives are pressed to produce the world-famous Tuscan extra virgin olive oil.

We are then ready for a full Tuscan lunch and tastings at the Osteria della Villa.
Lunch includes an appetizer, a first course, a dessert and a coffee!
