There will then be a short safety training session and introduction to the itinerary.
The first part of the bike ride lasts about an hour, and we will pass through the ancient Porta Romana gate. This is the only entrance to Florence that is still surrounded by the 13th century city walls.
The first ascent of the day (700m) is in a beautiful residential area of the town. Once at the top, we will see a distant Florence and an approach to the Tuscan countryside.
After reaching the countryside, along narrow and ancient roads, it will be possible to make numerous photo stops and learn about local flora and fauna.
Once we reach the Villa, we will park the bicycles in the olive grove and in the Villa, here the guide will give a brief introduction on the local olive oil and winemaking. Furthermore, being a family-run production, the products are absolutely organic and sustainable, including the owner's vegetable garden.
We will then enter the millenary cellar for a wine and olive oil tasting accompanied by a Tuscan snack based on typical local products, exclusive and available only in the Villa. In fact, both wine and olive oil will be available for purchase and shipping.
