Multi-Day Tour

Tuscany E-Biking (6 days)

Butterfield & Robinson

Sinalunga, Italy To Florence, Italy


Day 1
Sinalunga, Italy
Locanda dell’Amorosa Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snack

Cycle to tiny Montisi, arriving in time for lunch at the cozy trattoria of Signor Bindi on the edge of his olive oil estate. After a heavenly repast we’ll descend into the valley towards the hotel; keen riders have the option of cycling on to Pienza.

Day 2
Sinalunga, Italy
Locanda dell’Amorosa Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snack

The following day’s ride is through rolling countryside, passing such charming (and charmingly unfrequented) villages as Borgonuovo and Farneta, en route to our very special private picnic at Casa Lungarella. This isn’t a restaurant—the Lungarellas are a delightful Tuscan family who have graciously invited us into their home!

Day 3
Siena, Italy
Grand Hotel Continental Siena Breakfast, Lunch, Snack

On today’s ride we’ll see some of the most stunning scenery of the week as we pedal through the crete, the clay hills leading northwest to Siena. Those wishing to ride a little more can take the long route, passing by the monastery of Monte Oliveto Maggiore, with its remarkable fresco cycle.

Day 4
Pianella, Italy
Le Fontanelle Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Snack

Ride through the beautiful vineyards of Chianti to Brolio Castle where you'll have a chance to sample some of the estate’s famous reds while partaking in a delicious lunch of Tuscan charcuterie and homemade pasta.

Day 5
Pianella, Italy
Le Fontanelle Breakfast, Dinner, Snack

Our final day offers an exquisite loop ride through the rolling hills of Chianti, with its wooded groves and hilltop vineyards. We’ll visit the well-known villages of Gaiole and Radda, both postcard-picturesque. Tonight we enjoy a private tasting and dinner in one of the region's top wineries!

Day 6
Florence, Italy
None Breakfast

After breakfast together at the hotel, we deliver you to the train station in Florence. Farewell and safe travels.

Tour Features


  • Adventure
  • Food & Wine
  • Walking & Biking


With lush rolling hills, medieval towns and meandering roads keeping it all together, Tuscany is a biker’s idyll. There is something eminently peaceful in riding through hilltop towns that have stood watch here since the Middle Ages, passing vines tended by generations of winemakers, and savouring traditional cuisine made from the freshest and tastiest local ingredients. This is the region you imagine when you think of Italy; home to olive groves and cypress trees, Roman battlefields and Renaissance churches, and a who’s who of charming villages—from tiny Trequanda and Montisi to Gaiole in Chianti, Siena, and Pienza.

The best way to see the world

This is our 10th Butterfield Trip. It remains the best way to see a region. Nothing beats vigorous activity during the day and luxury at night. Bespoke trips for a large group are cost-effective and totally your own. We loved our guides Denis and Jerome this month in Loire, France. Amazing trip. With B&R you have access to private homes, private experiences, and people and places you would never meet otherwise.
