Full description
Enjoy the first sights of the Chianti hills. At the starting point and before heading off on your biking route, familiarize yourself with the bike and equipment and make the necessary adjustments to fulfil your heart's desire! Then experience a closer feel for the region through a leisurely, small-group bike tour on sophisticated and easy-to-use e-bikes.  Tuscany with its historic Eroica race has rendered itself as one of the world's most famous cycling areas. E-bikes now make this area accessible to all, even those with very little biking experience. Set and modify the level of difficulty at any time, whether uphill or down the valley and give the Chianti biking experience a new flavor. The silent electric motor allows you to take in the sounds and smells that the people driving through the area inevitably miss. Enjoy the tranquility of this beautiful countryside through a route of quiet roads away from the main traffic. Enjoy an easy-paced, 20km (12mile) ride of approximately 3 hours that will allow you to explore the neat rows of vineyards, pretty olive groves, dense and shaded forests.  As well as the quaint and picturesque villages for which the Chianti has become known. Be surprised by the occasional modern art installations among the vegetation, adding a touch of quirky modernity to an otherwise traditional landscape that has otherwise remained unchanged. Take some unforgettable pictures throughout the morning, during the frequent stops to take in the sights and views, breathe in the fresh, countryside air. Explore a beautifully restored Monastery dating back to the 15 century, including its neat Renaissance gardens and silent cloisters. Admire the stunning chapel fresco, known as the "Little Sistine". Having replenished your senses, jump on your bikes for one last, short ride to the family-run winery that will welcome you to learn about the long-standing art of making wine, from the vineyards to the cellars. Then sit down to a delicious tasting of the winery's wine and olive oil, accompanied a full lunch including platters of tasty local products.

We were very lucky with the weather and with our guide Ricardo. And the only two of us were on the road with him. The tour is not without, many meters in altitude and about 45 km. But it's easy to do with a solid eMTB if you're used to German low mountain ranges. A few breaks and great views of the Tuscan landscape around Siena later you come to a winery, with incredibly good food and very good wine. We would do the tour again ANYTIME. Price is absolutely justified.

Bike tour with eBikes approx. 40 km through beautiful hills with vine and olive trees. Domenikus our guide gave us time for photos until he showed us an old monastery with a monastery garden. At lunchtime we stopped at a winemaker. The daughter of the house provided information about the traditional family business and served wine and delicious pasta with truffle sauce. We had a very nice and active day!
