Tour of Tuscany

BIT

Italy | San Marino

Experience the famous landscapes of Tuscany and Umbria on our Tuscany motorcycle tour.

Can beautiful roads still be found in Italy? Do remote, lightly travelled by-ways that meander through captivating scenery even exist? Yes, they still exist in Tuscany, Umbria and Marche! Enjoy the splendid roads on this dazzling motorcycle tour through the ancient lands of the Etruscans and Romans.

We’ll show you all the region has to offer. A tour for serious riders as well as connoisseurs of culture and history, this adventure starts and ends in the fabled city of Florence. Firenze, as it’s known to the locals, is worth a voyage across the Atlantic all by itself. Our first riding day in Tuscany snakes through the Chianti Classico region. As the first pages of this picture-book tour unfold, the hills fade into a grayish blue with stone pines, “castelli“ and “centri storici“ flashing by as we roll towards Siena. The city of Siena steems with culture and history.

 

This is where the Palio, the legendary historical horse race, gallops through the “Piazza del Campo,“ Siena’s main square and emotions reach the boiling point as the fierce rivalry between the “Contrade“ renews its centuries-old tradition. The trip to Assisi will be one of spiritual renewal. At Madonna della Cima, high above Gubbio, we’ll behold the beauty of Umbria. Next, we push off for San Marino, the city that is a country unto itself. Our final rest day can be used to explore the great castles and fortresses of Montefeltro. After this reprieve, we come upon our grand finale: a jaunt through the mountain passes across the Alpi di Serra and Casentin on our way back to Florence.

TOUR OF TUSCANY

Tuscany, being the heart of Italy since ancient times, has rolling hills filled with olives, vines and various fruits (there is always a scent in the air as you ride by). The stone farmhouses and hilltop villages are always special in their character and history. The great roads weave through such beauty it is hard to find a motorcycle tour anywhere else quite like it (and I have done the tour twice, back to back). And, of course, the special towns of San Gimignano, Siena and Assisi are unlike anywhere else, too. And should the land and architecture fail to entrance, the food and wine certainly will at the end of a day‘s glorious riding.

EXPERIENCE TUSCANY

Traveling through Tuscany on two wheels is just an amazing experience. All the beautiful medieval towns, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the twisty country roads, Italian pizza, pasta and espresso, and not to forget the Duomo in Florence - these guarantee a full week of excitement, and memories that last a lifetime. Our group of friends has done several tours with Edelweiss Bike Travel already and we have sometimes even asked them to put together a private tour just for us. We will keep riding around the world with Edelweiss - for sure!
