Tuscany by scooter 2TU1901

Day 1, Welcome to Florence

Welcome to Tuscany!!! A cloudy sky in Florence is not too bad when you want to go for a walk through the centre! And this is how the tour started, with a visit to the cradle of Reinassance. We could admire some of the most impressive monuments, such as the Cathedral with its belltower and baptistery, then the church of Santa Croce, the Ponte Vecchio and the Piazza della Signoria, before having lunch and going back to the hotel for the scooter handover!

Day 2, San Gimignano

Unfortunately the clouds brought also some rain, so today we had to wear our rain gear before starting, but we still enjoyed a great ride through the Chianti hills before reaching San Gimignano, the Manhattan of the Middle Ages. On the way back, passing through Piazzale Michelangelo, it was impossible not to stop and enjoy a stunning view of Florence!!

Day 3, Arezzo

A beautiful ride on the Passo della Consuma, just after leaving Florence, took us to the charming little village of Poppi, where we stopped for our first coffee break. After that, we finally reached Arezzo, the highlight of today, with its beautiful historic centre where also the famous movie "la Vita è bella" was filmed. On the way back, some threathening clouds suggested us to wear rain gear... and it was a good idea!

Day 4, Siena

Finally a beautiful weather! Today we enjoyed a great ride through the Chianti hills, first to reach the beautiful city of Siena and then also on the way back! Enjoy the pictures!

What a day! Thousands of curves, perfect weather, a delicious dinner downtown Florence... what else could we ask for?

Day 6, Olive oil tasting and Vallombrosa

The last (unfortunately!) riding day was also the most relaxed, we left the hotel a little later and rode to Reggello where we could visit an old oil mill, learn something about the production of olive oil and also do a tasting! After lunch, we reached Florence passing by Vallombrosa, another great ride!

Thank you for a beautiful tour, ride safe!!!
