Explore Tuscany's legendary "white roads" on our gravel bike tour, where amazing rides meet the region's famed wines and gastronomy.

This is everything you imagine from a Tuscany cycling vacation, but so much more as we get off the grid and onto a gravel adventure fit for royalty. You'll ride on timeworn white gravel roads, known as the strade bianche, that set the stage for Italian pro races and the famous Eroica bike event, into the Crete Senesi with its stunning other-worldly views, and over to the scenic Val d’Orcia. Discover the quintessential Tuscan villages of Gaiole, picturesque Montalcino, and the most regal of them all — Siena. Your taste buds will indulge in rich pastas, pizzas, and all the great wines of the region including the deep reds of Chianti and Brunello. This is the ultimate Tuscan unpaved adventure you won’t want to miss.

What Guests are Saying

It is an incredible journey to discover the hidden corners of the Tuscan territory. Nothing is like the "white roads" of Tuscany; perfect for cycling, quiet, picturesque, rich in history, and ready to host cyclists, whether it's a pro race or an historical re-enactment. At the top of each new hill, I am rewarded with unique, postcard scenery. The atmosphere that you breathe is one of a kind, the people are cheerful and light-hearted and never refuse a good glass of Chianti or Brunello.
