We can’t say it enough time: “Complete your Tuscany holiday with our VIP treatments and experiences!” Followed by: “We have personally experienced everything we offer.”
Today we are testing one of our Tuscany bike tours. A mountain bike tour through the valley called “Val d’Elsa.” These beautiful green hills belong to the Florence area. We bike between the Chianti area and the Tuscan coast. Our starting point is from Villa Roxana where we slept like royals last night. We woke up with this beautiful view and after a good breakfast we are on our bikes in this early morning!
Start – Montaione Florence
We leave early, it is still a bit chilly. For now, later on for sure we will be sweating!
Biking our way through Tucany
On our way to our first stop we have to face some serious hills and forest trails!
Day tour break 1 – panorama & culture
The panorama point and our visit to the monastery of San Vivaldo makes it all worthwhile!

As we pedal on
Pedali, pedali! Pedal, pedal! We go at a good pace, because we know what’s waiting for us…
Day tour break 2 – a well-deserved wine tasting in Tuscany
Celebrating the end of a great Tuscany bike tour experience with a wine tasting in the heart of Tuscany. It seemed most logical to us! We are at winery Tognetti, an important wine producer in this region of Tuscany. We taste their deep red Vigna Olmo wine. This deep red wine is a mix of Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. The fruity taste with spicy undertone is delicious in combination with the served Tuscan cheeses, salami mix, raw ham and bruschettas. Cin-cin to this wonderful day!
