CHIANTI CLASSICO ROAD CYCLING
In collaboration with La Corsa we are proud to offer an unforgettable one-day road cycling adventure in the heart of the Chianti Classico area.
Our 40km one day taster menu will see you collected from your hotel and transferred to Borgo Sicelle where we will set you up on one of our finely tuned De Rosa Idol carbon frames with Campagnolo groupsets and set off into the countryside.
The route takes us through the enchanting medieval towns of Radda in Chianti and Castellina in Chianti where we will stop as the locals do for a coffee and look around the historical centers before heading back out onto the very roads used in the Giro D’Italia. The last leg of cycle will be a long sweeping descent with incredible panoramic views over Chianti before the short climb back up to the villa.
Having burned some calories and taken in the beautiful views that Chianti has to offer we shall stop at Fattoria Montecchio for some well deserved lunch and wine tasting. Finally, full of wine, photos and hopefully ever lasting memories we will take the short drive back to Florence.
Advanced skill level: Suitable for those who bike regularly and are comfortable cycling a hilly terrain with some longer and more challenging climbs.
Highlights: On the roads of the Giro d'Italia through the Chianti Classico region, light lunch and wine tasting.
