Florence, Siena and Pisa are just some of the notable places in Tuscany that have been continually attracting visitors because of their impressive history and heritage. But there are also equally striking, albeit lesser known, spots worth checking out like Lucca, Cortona, Arezzo and San Gimignano. Because of the diversity and size of this region, it is really hard to determine where to start looking. Fortunately, there are many ways of exploring Tuscany, and if you are looking for something fun, different, challenging, and at the same time, more environment-friendly, why not try to go for a biking tour around this absolutely marvelous Italian region?
A bike tour guarantees you a very rewarding and memorable experience. But the usual problem that travelers encounter with self-guided biking trips, especially in such a big area, is the tremendous amount of planning. If you don’t have the time to do this, a great alternative is sign up with a reputable tour company to show you around, minus the worry and hassle! DuVine is just one of the many tour companies that offer amazing biking tour packages. Because of their expertise of Tuscany and long experience in the bike touring industry, DuVine has been successful in setting up splendid itineraries that cater to various types of tourists.
There is more to the region that it appears, and the DuVine bike tour aims to show their guests just that! This tour is not going to be just your ordinary day trip excursion. It is quite comprehensive as it typically lasts for six days and five nights. But you will not go rough-and-tough on this one; as the package covers stays at comfortable and luxurious hotels. You will be dining at fine restaurants and do some wine tasting. So the whole thing is really about traveling in style; only that you will burn more calories while doing so.
The everyday bike ride covers approximately 25 miles. But physical exertion aside, biking is a wonderful way of seeing the true beauty and enjoying the real essence of Tuscany. You will be able to explore charming medieval towns like Montalcino, Petroio, Pienza and Montepulciano, at a relaxed pace. But you should also expect to tackle hills, which are mostly steep but short. Tuscany, after all, has been the training ground for many professional cyclists.
