You’ll start off from Pisa and ride deep into the Tuscan hills before heading to the coast. Highlights include staying on Elba Island, most famous for harbouring Napoleon during his 1814 exile. The extraordinary richness of its landscapes, both land and marine, turns the island of Elba into a unique destination in Tuscany. Picture crystalline blue waters, golden hills and cobblestoned villages.
The tour ends in the Chianti region with rides through vineyards and afternoons filled with the very best wine.
Following a welcome at Pisa airport, you’ll be transferred to your hotel in a small village south of Pisa. Your bikes will be properly fitted before we set off on a short warm up ride across the countryside.
