JEWELS OF TUSCANY (VENICE TO PISA)
VENICE TO PISA
Our most relaxed ride but no less invigorating. A glorious 6 day ride through Northern Tuscany with ample time to enjoy the sights, smells and tastes of this beautiful region.
Enjoy 6 days of care free riding with us. A spectacular start in Venice and then 3 easy days of fairly flat riding whilst enjoying great towns during the day and medieval cities at night. Day 4 takes us into the Apennines with the ascent of the Passo Della Raticosa with its gentle gradient and spectacular views. We then stay high in the hills for a night under the stars in more rural settings. Day 5 we have a smaller climb before descending into Florence with all that city has to offer. The final day is a delightful route mostly following the river Arno into Pisa via Lucca. Fantastic finish hotel with balcony over looking the tower of Pisa.
