Tuscany Cycling Tour
A land of elegance, beauty and dreams
Tuscany a land of beauty, elegance and dreams. Where the colours of the landscape and the flavours of the traditional cuisine change with the seasons, and the slow rhythm of life is felt with each encounter, ride and meal.
To the cyclist who ventures into this world, it is heaven. Urged by a sense of adventure and the discovery of magnificent views at every turn, you can expect long, warm days on the bike surrounded by incredible panoramic views of rolling hills, olive groves, vineyards and medieval hilltop towns, all while embracing the winding roads, challenging climbs and exhilarating descents.
Rediscover your taste for adventure on our Tuscany cycling tour as you pedal along quiet country roads and cobblestoned streets, enjoying the history, culture and of course the cuisine of this spectacular region.
Tuscany is where our journey began and a place we invite you to share with us as we create a truly authentic experience of our favourite areas to ride and eat in this ancient land, where the art of living is represented through tradition, generosity and talent.
Come ride, eat and drink like a Tuscan. You’re in for an unforgettable adventure.

Food & Wine
Enjoy with us the distinctly different areas of Tuscany and their varied recipes and wines.
The lure of the Tuscan table is immense; characterised by its close association with the land, Tuscan cuisine is earthy, simple in style, and reflective of the region’s changing seasons and peasant traditions or ‘cucina povera’. We will take you on a food safari of Tuscany that takes in all the very best it has to offer from simple organic produce, grown on our host properties, to exquisite gastronomic dishes at a selection of family run osterias and restaurants.
THOUGHTFULLY PLANNED & SEAMLESSLY EXECUTED
The ride routes took us through iconic Tuscan landscapes, towns and villages, and when you thought the scenery cold not get better, around the next corner it did. The free-flowing, sweeping descents were an exhilarating reward for the climbing beforehand.
AN INSPIRING, AMAZING TRIP
We would sincerely like to thank you both for an inspiring, amazing, enlightening and wonderful trip around beautiful Tuscany. We were so impressed with the diversity and attention to detail you achieved in putting this together for us. Every moment was special. Every moment was exciting and rewarding.
HAPPY MEMORIES FOR YEARS TO COME
Thank you so much for the amazing tour of Tuscany. The countryside lived up to its reputation as seen in countless books and movies. The experience you gave us was superb. The accommodation, the riding, the food, wine, spa, tours and the company were first class. We will have happy memories for years to come.
EXCEEDED ALL EXPECTATIONS
My Tuscany cycling tour in September 2018 with Damian and Nancy exceeded all expectations, a wonderful combination of scenery and gourmet delights along with wonderful accommodation in Tuscan villas. This tour was the most rewarding active holiday experience and I recommend A’qto Cycling Italian cycling tours without hesitation.
