Day-tour in Tuscany – Cycling Vacation

Meet your guide at 8.30 am at your Hotel in Livorno or Pisa, from where you will travel by private transfer to Bibbona, admiring on the way the stunning views of the Etruscan coastline. From the coast we will head inland on historic routes through unspoilt countryside. Our cycle ride will start from Bibbona, our route leading usthrough the Mediterranean scrubland of the Magona nature reserve to the medieval village of Bolgheri,. We will make a short stop in the village for a snack at a local hostelry. We will then proceed along the famous wine route, with a stop at a wine estate belonging to a local family who will welcome us with a light lunch of local food accompanied by wine from the estate. A tour of the cellars and some winetasting will follow, before we continue our ride on hidden paths back to Bibbona.

Return to Livorno in the late afternoon by shuttle bus.
