What you'll do

Recommended for the ones who want to see the best of Chianti. This is the only experience allowing you to discover by e-bike in one day all the most historical and beautiful castles/wineries in the Chianti Classico wine production area. Your bikes will roll easily on tarmac and trail, for an effortless 5 senses full immersion into nature, history and culinary traditions. I will pick you up at the meeting point or at your B&B if you ask for it, then we'll reach Gaiole in Chianti, a lovely small town in the heart of Chianti area. We'll visit the Meleto castle, outside and inside, with a proper castle guide, having a glass of their Chianti wine at the end. Then we'll visit the Brolio castle, its gardens and museum, it's a unique place where the Italian history have been made. Then we'll visit the Brolio winery and we'll try a glass of their Chianti wine. Finally we'll arrive at the Tornano Castle, visiting it inside and outside, and finally we'll have a typical Tuscan lunch, with bruschetta, extra-virgin olive oil, prosciutto, finocchiona, pecorino cheese, 3 blends of their wine and Vinsanto with cantuccini. Including: Transport, e-bikes, 3 castles visits, 3 wine tastings with typical Tuscan lunch. The itinerary will be about 20 kms on a hilly course, so we'll provide ebikes to make it affordable to anyone. Bike trailers and child seats available for kids

Hi, this is Sam, born and bread in Florence, biker and adventurer for a lifetime and guide since 2013. Because of my deep knowledge in Tuscan territory, Florence city and its backcountry, my 20 years biking and bike travelling expertise, I can manage extreme bike adventures, but I normally organize bike trips in Tuscany to discover the country, or daily rides in Florence and Chianti area. I leaded thousands of guests in my bike tours, through the Chianti to visit farms and have super food/wine tastings, or in Florence city center to see the iconic spots and unveiling the hidden places, telling stories about the city. I can guide you discovering Leonardo da Vinci birthplace, Medici's villas, the most ancient and beautiful castles, the National Parks, climbing the highest peaks on the Great Apennine Excursion route, camping into the wild.
