Tuscany Family Bike Tours

Experience Tuscany

With lush rolling hills, medieval towns and nary a costumed character for miles, Tuscany is our kind of theme park. Explore hilltop towns that have stood watch since the Middle Ages. Bike the famed Crete Senesi along carefully-selected routes suitable for all ages, stay at top-notch hotels that welcome rather than just tolerate children. Take part in hands-on pasta making workshops and sample Chianti with an expert (that last one is, of course, just for the folks). Welcome to the Italy of your dreams.

*The activities on our Tuscany Family Biking trip are recommended for children age 12 years and older.

Signature

We use premium hotels that are unique expressions of the region. Often they’ve had a previous life as a monastery or a castle, but in every case they offer an exceptionally comfortable stay.

Bistro

These are stylish 4-star properties that offer a casual and comfortable stay. Often without a 24-hour concierge or room service, they tend to be smaller family-run hotels that are perfect for the region.

Locanda dell’Amorosa, Sinalunga

When Carlo Citterio set out to restore the property that has been in his family for centuries, his first step was to convert the stables into a superb restaurant. Soon other buildings were refurbished: your bedroom may well have been a clock tower or the hunting lodge. Literally translated as “lodging of romance,” the Locanda exudes just that, and has long been a favourite B&R retreat. View hotel website »

Accolades

“Guides were friendly, approachable, and always willing to cater to any/every need. Rides were challenging and picturesque, and for those of us that wanted more kilometers and sites route suggestions were plentiful. Children were spoiled with all of the positive attention, bravo!"

In Tuscany, Home is Where the Hospitality Is

I met Sara on one of my first trips as a guide in 2001. Her kindness and hospitality stuck with me. So much so that when I found myself making batch upon batch of Christmas cookies to share with my friends in Florence that year, I decided it would be fun to takes some to Sara and the family.
