Your cycling trip in Tuscany :

The landscape of Tuscany is one of the most beautiful and evocative in Europe, with rolling hills laced with verdant vineyards and cypress trees lining the roads.
You will pedal from one incredible view to the next, admiring Renaissance art and architecture and getting to know the lands of many great artists of the past, such as Leonardo da Vinci and the composer Giacomo Puccini. The towns of Pisa and Florence do not need any further presentation, but in this tour you will discover also picturesque villages where you will be tempted by the excellent Tuscan cuisine.

Day 1 : Arrival in Pisa


The city is famous all over the world for its magic Piazza dei Miracoli with the characteristic leaning tower, the bell tower of the city cathedral.
Part of the UNESCO World Heritage list since 1987, besides a large number of monuments it also offers the friendly and lively atmosphere of a university city.

Day 2 : Pisa - Lucca | 30 / 45 km


Today you are pedalling northwards along the Serchio river for an easy stage. For those who wish a slightly longer itinerary, there is the option of going towards
Massaciuccoli Lake before reaching Lucca.

Day 3 : Lucca - Montecatini | 45 km


Through a panoramic road you reach the little village of Collodi and the town of Pescia. In Collodi, where the author of Pinocchio spent his childhood, you can
visit the famous Pinocchio’s Park (created in 1962) and the aristocratic Villa Garzoni. In Pescia you can enjoy a quiet stroll among churches, palaces, Renaissance mansions and the local flower street market.

Day 4 : Montecatini roundtour | 60 km


Today’s route offers you again two possibilities. You can relax in one of the most famous thermal cities in Europe and stroll down the narrow lanes of the old city,
which is situated on a hill and can be reached by a characteristic cable-railway.
Otherwise a picturesque itinerary will lead you among villas of the Medicis family, olive groves, vineyards and beautiful historical farms, going past Vinci, Leonardo’s birthplace (visit to the museum possible).

Day 5 : Montecatini - Florence | 50 / 65 km


Today you have to choose either to start pedalling directly from Montecatini or to shorten the trip through a short train transfer to Pistoia, rich in Romanesque and
Renaissance monuments (in particular churches) and having one of the most evocative squares in Italy: Piazza del Duomo (Cathedral Square). From here back
onto the saddle, to reach Florence.

Day 6 : Florence | 50 km


It will be up to you to decide how to spend your time in one of the world’s most beautiful cities! Tuscany’s capital is known for its wealth in culture, architecture and art and is considered the birthplace of the Renaissance.

Day 7 : Florence - Empoli - Pisa | 40 / 65 km by bike + 40 / 65 km by train


Today you can choose if either starting pedalling directly from Florence and reaching Pisa through a train transfer from Empoli or taking a train to Empoli and
riding to Pisa along the river Arno.

Your journey

Tuscany has a wonderful but also hilly landscape. The itinerary runs mostly on a flat area with some hilly parts which do not requireparticular athletic skills.
You will cycle on quiet minor roads and sometimes even on country lanes from one famous city to another (88% tarmac, 12% unpaved). Close to bigger cities, traffic is unfortunately unavoidable.

Pisa train station.

> By plane :
 Pisa and Florence airport.
