Pin It
The warmth and beauty of Tuscany unfold before you on this thrilling itinerary.

We’ll pedal through a rich history, with natural and architectural wonders at every turn—from the gentle slopes of the glorious piedemontana route at the foot of the Apuan Alps to the splendor of the villa-lined Via delle Ville. We’ll ride atop Lucca’s medieval walls, soak in the thermals of Montecatini, delight at quaint villages, and marvel at Pisa’s Square of Miracles. Along the way, meet passionate Tuscans during VBT-exclusive home visits, walking tours, and lectures that reveal this magical region through the eyes of locals.
