Shaped like a knee-high heeled boot, Italy is probably the most recognisable country in the world.

Loved for the vast, imposing mountains of the north that separate it from France, Slovenia, Switzerland and Austria, and, the Apennines - often called the ‘backbone; of Italy - that stretch in swooping glory from north to south. Italy is a cyclist’s adventure playground.

Then there are 4,722 miles of stunning coastline with white sandy beaches, surrounded by the crystal blue waters of the Mediterranean and Tyrrhenian seas. Couple this with Italy’s infamous history as home to the Pope and the ancient Vatican City, the leaning tower of Pisa, the most romantic language in the world, the most delicious pizza on earth, and let’s not even start on the football...

It’s easy to see why Italy is more than just a favourite holiday destination; it’s a way of life.

I love places that have an incredible history. I love the Italian way of life. I love the food. I love the people. I love the attitudes of the Italians.

Tuscany

Tuscany is one of Italy’s most famous tourist hot spots. Rich in history, it’s home to Florence, the leaning tower of Pisa, and the Chianti vineyards. This picture-perfect location is one of the most cultural destinations in the Cycology playbook.

A cyclist’s dream, Tuscany behind the handlebars is like nothing you’ve ever experienced before. Imagine exploring quaint medieval villages where once marched the Roman Empire. Or pedalling the rolling countryside in the heart of wine country. Then, heading into the mountains for gruelling ascents, white-knuckle descents with the warm wind whipping through your helmet hair, and jaw-dropping views over rolling Italian landscapes.

When you’re not in the saddle, think cloudless azure skies and mooching around the designer shops in shorts and open-toed shoes. Think of extensive wine tours at some of the worlds best wineries, supping Chianti with freshly made ciabatta and olive oil in the last rays of the warm evening sun.

A few days into your trip, you may be ready for a little adventure. How about hiring a roaring Ferrari, fiery Lamborghini, or sleek and elegant Maserati for a day trip to Bologna’s super-suave Po valley. Or, if fast cars are not your thing, then hop aboard a helicopter for a birds-eye tour of the region from 20,000 feet.

Whatever you expect from your Tuscan adventure, let us know, and we’ll move heaven and earth to make it happen.
