Half Day in Chianti

A relaxing bike-ride in the Sienese countryside, combining good food, wine and fun for all, beginners and families alike. From Villa Armena you will be taken to a spectacular XIV century monastery, the Certosa di Pontignano in the heart of Classic Chianti; this is where the trip begins. You will cycle along quiet country roads, far from traffic at the speed that most suits you, among vineyards, olive trees and cypresses. You will stop off at the beautiful medieval village of Vagliagli to enjoy a light lunch of ham, fennel, cheese, olive oil and Chianti. After the meal you will be back in the saddle to continue the tour, mostly on downhill roads or on the flat, always travelling through a truly stunning landscape.
