Lucca and its hills
After limbering up in Lucca, we set off to explore the surrounding hills with their olive groves and vineyards. We also tackle the challenging Monte Serra, travelling through forests and valleys to reach the wild spaces of the Apuan Alps.
The tour will take us past ancient churches and classic villas, through medieval villages and on languid rides which hug the Serchio river. Our routes include a nice balance of gentle, scenic rides and harder cycling challenges – topped up with amazing dining.
“Cyclists see considerable more of this beautiful world than any other class of citizens. A good bicycle, well applied, will cure most ills this flesh is heir to.”
This CyclingInItaly tour is all about challenge, relaxation and fun as you make the most of every Italian breakfast, lunch and dinner on offer – not forgetting a visit to the oldest pastry shop in Lucca! Try the local wines, olive oils and delicacies, with the best Italian cuisine available.
