Tuscany: Val D'Orcia white roads short break


Bike Tour: Tuscany: Val D'Orcia white roads short break - 5 days

The Tuscan landscape of the Val d'Orcia will warm your heart like a classic photograph as you cycle the waves of undulating green hills, captured in time as if the Etruscans just rode through. Glance at the picturesque farmhouses nestled amidst the olive groves and vineyards. Pass walnut and fig trees on your way to the hot spring town of Bagno Vignoni, and then explore the phenomenal labyrinth streets and artisan workshops of Montepulciano. You shall visit Renaissance palaces, Romanesque churches, thermal baths, and prestigious wineries serving the divine local red "Brunello". Soaring up high to fascinating hilltop towns, you will revel in delight

Day 1:    Arrive in Buonconvento

Upon arrival in the charming medieval town of Buonconvento, rich in history and architecture with 700-year old walls, a transfer will take you to the agriturismo (farm house) where you will stay for the next four nights. A delicious Tuscan dinner awaits you! If you have rented bikes with us, they will be waiting for you at the accommodation.

Day 2:    Murlo and La Befa round tour
33 km

Ride through the beautiful, uncontaminated countryside to Murlo and immerse yourself in the dense woods as you ride by the Crevole River. Continue past steep cliffs to the sweet smell of bright yellow flowers and through an enchanting oak tree forest to La Befa. A short part of the trail is too narrow or rocky to cycle (about 300m) however the exhilarating views are more than worth the effort.

Challenge: 33 km, 584m ascent, 675m descent

Day 3:    Montalcino Land of Brunello wine round trip
24 km

Pedal through vibrant fields of sunflowers past Buonconvento to the heart of the Brunello wine district. The Monte Amiata volcano lures above as the surrounding countryside transforms into endless olive groves and vineyards. Ride steeply up to the fortified city of Montalcino where you can visit its magnificent 14th century fortress and Palazzo Comunale, then return to Buonconvento along remote back roads.

Challenge: 24/42 km, 588/1177m salita, 588/1177m discesa

Day 4:    Pienza to Buonconvento via Lucignano d'asso
24 km

After breakfast clients are transferred to Pienza. The ride today is mostly on gravel road, gentle rolling hills in the most beautiful countryside of the Orcia valley. Half way you can stop in Lucignano d'Asso, a tiny village on the L'eroica cycle route. Then you ride back to the organic farm of Pieve a Salti where you stay tonight.

Challenge: 24 km, 400m ascent, 654m descent

Day 5:    Arrivederci Val d'Orcia
After breakfast a short transfer takes you down to Buonconvento where you can catch the local bus or train to the airport, unless you have booked a transfer or extra services with us.
