This ten-day tour is a true full immersion into two beautiful regions that are considered among the greatest places for bicycling vacations. You will see the very best of Central Tuscany and Umbria. These two regions are in themselves historically, culturally and climatically different.
Tuscany is known for its hamlets and hill towns, terracotta rooftops, swaying cypress and golden valleys, as well as being the birthplace of the Italian Language, the Renaissance, and the cradle of Italian art. It was a land of wars between hundreds of its towns and villages.
The holy Umbria was a land of peace historically bound to the Church State. It is the land of St. Francis and it is the “Green Heart” of Italy - with its green fields, plains, forests and meadows of the Apennine Mountains. It is known not only for its precious liquid, olive oil, but also for its white and pink Umbrian limestone that was used to build many of its medieval villages.
