Cycle from the leaning tower of Pisa to Florence's Ponte Vecchio, passing through the Tuscan landscapes that inspired Leonardo da Vinci. Riding along riverside paths and quiet roads, the cycle terrain is easy-going and you’ll have the option of additional detours plus the chance to explore astounding cities on foot. Lucca’s Renaissance walls and famous cuisine are something to look forward to – sipping Lucchesi wine and munching the local pasta isn’t a bad way to spend a day if you don’t fancy pedalling into the green countryside.

In Montecatini, you can pick between a tour of the old city or a cycle to Leonardo da Vinci’s birthplace. The art city of Florence makes a magical final destination before returning to Pisa, and you’ll have a full afternoon to visit the art galleries or stroll around the World Heritage streets and relax with a cappuccino.
