On all of our vacations, Trek Travel strives to find quiet, paved secondary roads or bike paths to experience a region; busy roads are avoided as much as possible. Tuscany is best suited for our Type 3 Riders. Our Trek Travel guides can also easily accommodate Type 2 Riders, who seek less mileage or fewer uphills, with a boost in the van. Those who wish to ride every mile but are concerned about their physical ability may want to try our electric bike option–you still get a workout but can climb alongside even the strongest rider. Type 4 Riders will enjoy the extra mileage the avid route options offer. The terrain is consistently rolling, with quiet, narrow, and winding roads. Many towns sit atop hills and, although the ascents are not exceptionally steep, they are often upwards of 5km long. See Itinerary for specific daily ride distance and elevation options.
What are the options for a non-rider travel companion?
On most Trek Travel trips, we offer non-riding options for riders who want to take the afternoon off, or travel companions who want to spend little or no time in the saddle. Some of these options may need to be scheduled before your trip–please contact one of our Trip Consultants for more information. Expenses and/or related transportation to these activities may not be included in the trip price. See Included In The Trip Price for more information.Some non-riding options on this trip are:
- Explore the walled city of Castellina
- Shop and explore the medieval villages of Radda, Lecchi, Montaione, Monteriggioni and San Gimignano
- Take a side trip to Siena
- Discover why Tuscan wines and olive oils are so renowned during our private wine-tasting
- Opt to spend a half day at a local spa
