What to expect

Begin this exciting tour with a short walk through the small village of Vicchio and around its beautiful lake, then hop on your bike and enjoy the ride in the countryside, away from traffic.

Along the way you’ll admire a Romanesque church, a villa from the Medicean period and Giotto's house, always surrounded by nature and the typical Tuscan landscape.

Halfway through the ride, you’ll stop at a saffron farm. See the local farm animals, the beehives and vineyard, and taste some delicious saffron-flavored products (honey, jam, cheese, biscuits, beer, herbal tea), while the owners show you how to grow saffron.

From Florence, you can easily reach the meeting point by train and enjoy the scenic journey through the Tuscan countryside.
