What you'll do

On this three-day trip you'll explore a uniquely wonderful corner of Tuscany - the lands of Leonardo da Vinci - starting in lovely renaissance Lucca, pedaling the Tuscan countryside, and experiencing a Tuscan country estate just outside Vinci, the medieval hamlet that the renowned Renaissance Man called home. On your first day, you'll arrive in Lucca where our guide will meet you and fit your bikes, before departing on a ride on the best-preserved medieval walls and ramparts in Europe. Our guide will organize a group dinner to celebrate our first day together. The next day we'll bike as a group through lovely Tuscan countryside to Vinci, visiting a medieval town on the way. We'll pedal slowly through vineyards and farms, olive groves and forests, with the Appuan Alps and the Apennines in view, taking in the scents and sounds of the lovely scenery. Once in Vinci, take time to visit the fascinating museums and enjoy an optional wine tasting at our lovely countryside farmhouse estate, set amongst vineyards and olive orchards - a real Tuscan experience. In the summer, pool time might also be on the books - relax by the pool and enjoy an early evening aperitivo with new friends! Set in a magnificent location, the Il Piastrino estate is truly enchanting. On your final day, continue exploring Vinci and its museums, go for a countryside walk, or relax and enjoy our country estate.
