WE LOVE5* Castello de Nero Hotel and Spa
Located in the heart of Tuscany, this hotel provides incredible accommodation, including wine tasting and spa facilities, against the backdrop of the stunning Tuscan countryside. The hotel is situated in a perfect position to explore Tuscany, allowing you to ride as long as you desire before relaxing at the end of the day in luxury.
WE LOVEThe Views
There is nothing quite as dramatic as the views across Chianti. Olive groves and vineyards stretch out in front of you and the hills roll for miles and miles. Cypress trees line quiet roads and you can cycle on the famous Strada Bianchi, the famous Tuscan white roads.

What's Included

Day By Day Luxury at Castello del Nero

We can tailor make this trip for you
Day 1Arrival

Arrive into Pisa or Florence airport and you will be picked up and taken to the hotel. Spend the afternoon exploring the luxurious hotel, spa and its grounds.

Day 2Explore San Gimignano

This is one of our favourite Tuscan routes as you ride to San Gimignano, a must-see for any seasoned traveller, and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Encircled by its medieval walls and with its hilltop views, 12th century skyscrapers loom over the Piazza della Cisterna. We recommend a plate of Pappardelle, a favourite in Tuscany, in one of the numerous restaurants and cafes in the town.

Day 3Explore Tuscan Culture

Todays ride is a short half day taking in the beautiful Tuscan countryside as you ride a loop out to Certaldo. Stop along the route in one of the quiet villages to enjoy a coffee and relax in your surroundings taking in the true Tuscan way of life.

We recommend heading back to the hotel after lunch to enjoy an afternoon of wine tasting in the grounds or relax and indulge in the luxurious ESPA at Castello Del Nero.

Day 4Exploring the South of Chianti

This beautiful ride takes you to Castellina in Chianti on some spectacular roads that lead to this hidden Chianti landmark. Castellina’s history goes back to the Bronze Age and like Gaiole, its neighbour, it’s well known for its deep tasting, spicy and peppery olive oil. You will notice the colour and texture changes in the olive oils you taste as you ride through the region.

There is an option to continue to Radda in Chianti, a beautiful medieval town, perched on a hill with stunning views. This only adds 15km and is well worth it if you have the legs.

Day 5Departure

Today you will be transferred back to the airport for your return flight home.

What to Expect

If there is a better cycling experience than riding through Tuscany then we haven’t found it yet. Explore the medieval fortified towns of San Gimignano and Montepulciano, sip cappuccino in a Chianti town square and roll through the endless olive groves and vineyards.

Cypress trees will line your routes and, under the warm Tuscan sunshine, life’s daily stresses just melt away.

The SummerJune to August
The summer is hot and you're likely to experience good weather with warm temperatures. July & August are exceptionally warm and you are likely to want to ride early and stay out of the midday sun.
The AutumnSeptember to November
September is a great time to visit Tuscany as temperatures begin to drop from the stifling summer heat. Cycling will be hugely enjoyable in the early Autumn. November has the most rainfall so plan your trip to be home before then.
