You'll pedal quiet back roads around Florence, Chianti, Siena, Val d'Orcia and elsewhere. Personalized service with pick up and drop off at or near your hotel. All fitness/skill levels and fully van-supported. Several rides to choose from for varied interests, including wine and olive oil tasting, gelato tasting, historic castles and off-the-beaten path medieval villages. First-rate equipment (and electric bikes too!). Ask about our new cooking class ride for foodies! Florentine Marco Vignoli, a former bicycle racer, founded I Bike Tuscany. His wish is to share with you his passion for amazing scenery, adventure, great food and wine and, of course, biking. It's his belief there is no better or more exciting way to experience the singularly beautiful region of his homeland than from the seat of a "bicicletta," and so has worked hard to create some very special and unique itineraries that we're sure will have you believing the same. We look forward to your joining us for a day (or trip) you'll keep in your heart, take home with you and never forget. « less

We had the pleasure of being guided by Marco and Jodi on a hike to Cinque Terra and on a Gelato bike tour through the Chianti region. Both activities are very family friendly. We would highly recommend Marco and Jodi of I Bike Tuscany to everyone, individuals, couples and families. They are kind, courteous, pleasant, knowledgeable, timely, caring and fund... More

My husband and i biked outside Florence with our guide in March 2014. The ride was tailored to our activity level and our interests. As we passed olive trees and vineyards, we stopped to relish the view. Our guide was happy to tell us about the seasonal olive and grape harvest. For lunch and a short rest, we stopped at... More

My wife and I took a bike tour trough tuscany with Elizabeth on may, 2014. We crossed the roads from Gaiole in Chianti to Castel of Brolio, at Castelnuovo, as described in the following link: http://www.ibiketuscany.com/tours/view/chianti-tour-02. Elizabeth made we feel very safe, the bikes (two kybrid cannondales) were excellent. We really recommend.

This was one of the loveliest, most surreal days of my life-biking in Tuscany! Can you imagine?? My husband and I cannot say enough about this company! Paula, our driver did a great job every step of way! She made sure we were absolutely safe 100% of the time too! Thank you so much Paula for making this a perfect... More

The ride was a bit strenuous for we older folks, but the ride was well worth the views, and the stops at the wineries. A nice lunch stop in Tuscany and overall a good time.

Hi Elizabeth, My first day back in the office I wanted to tell you that the Trip with Paula was the highlight of our Italian Week. My Sister, Niece and I were completely spoiled by Paula. She took care of everything, including rain ponchos when we had a brief burst of rain. The route was beautiful and we have some... More

I took 6 American high school kids to Italy at the beginning of June and while we were in Tuscany we did a ride with Marco and two of his outstanding guides. The 17 miles kicked our butts (I was only able to do 16 of the 17 miles) but it was an awesome feeling when we finished! When we... More

Marco is a fantastic tour guide and this ride was amazing! This is a very laid back ride - all downhill - that's perfect for people who don't bike all the time. The area was beautiful! The tour also includes a gelato making demonstration that was very fun and tasty! Also Marco showed us two beautiful Tuscan towns - Castellina... More

We arranged for a private day-long bike tour in the Chianti countryside with Marco, the company's owner. The day was amazing and well put together. In addition to an exciting and safe journey, which was created based upon our interest in locations to visit, Marco provided options for specific route directions we may want to take. Excellent wine tasting and... More

Amazing! We did the Florence to Siena ride with Marco and Jodi. They were absolutely fabulous. The bike ride was exhilarating and beautiful. But, in addition to the great ride, Marco and Jodi introduced us to the Tuscan area through visits to local villages, winery tours with tastings, and an afternoon in the beautiful city of Siena. It was a... More
