Oh Chianti… vine-clad landscapes and silvery olive groves, silent country roads lined by cypresses and meadows dotted with stone farmhouses and quaint parish churches. Make the most of your Tuscan vacation traveling off-the-beaten path. How? With a fun, invigorating and enlightening Electric Bike Cycling Tour through the rolling Chianti hills !
Unique among all Chianti tours, our signature Private Cycling in Chianti blends the privilege of an exclusive private tour and the entertainment of a guided bike journey with the effortless (and sweat-free!) comfort of a delightful E-Bike ride. All with the privacy and freedom of touring with your friends and/or family party led by a dedicated private professional escort.
Ready for an engaging adventure? Mount your bikes and follow your guide through Florence’s streets and up the hill. No concerns, you’re on an E-Bike, which reduces stress and impact on your muscles and joints… so you can easily pedal uphill to your first, and memorable, destination: Piazzale Michelangelo! Catch memorable views, and take fabulous photos, before setting off again towards the countryside and marvelous Chianti.
Leave the bustling city behind and enjoy the one-of-a-kind thrill of biking right into the alluring cypress-peaked hills you saw from afar. Led by your escort you will catch mesmerizing vistas, and appreciate the fresh air and country breeze, leisurely biking down evocative Chianti country roads.
Our special E-bikes will assist you in the ups and downs, and all the members of your party will be able to ride flawlessly and for longer than they thought! Plus, a dedicated minivan will always be on standby, for anyone who’d rather take a rest for some time.
Feel the atmosphere, so peaceful and charming, and savor the pleasure of taking a break to visit a lovely ancient olive oil mill. Explore the grounds and actual mill, learn about the local tradition of olive harvesting and pressing, and taste the estate’s premium oil.
Crown your day with a tour of an exceptional boutique winery followed by a luscious typical luncheon in the winery restaurant. After lunch relax and enjoy the views before E-biking back to Florence.
Suited to all, from pros to families and wannabe bikers, our exclusive Private Cycling in Chianti tour provides you and your loved ones with a postcard-perfect day in the Tuscan hills.
(plus, added value: according to the University of Basel an E-bike ride is just as good for you as a regular bike ride, and even though E-cycling is assisted it's still excellent exercise!)
