Day-by-Day Cycling Holiday Itinerary


Day 1: Pisa

Individual arrival. The city is famous all over the world for its magic Piazza dei Miracoli with the characteristic leaning tower, the bell tower of the city cathedral.

Part of the UNESCO World Heritage list since 1987, besides a large number of monuments it also offers the friendly and lively atmosphere of a university city.

Day 2: Pisa – Lucca (30/45 km)

Today you are pedalling northwards along the Serchio river for an easy stage. For those who wish a slightly longer itinerary, there is the option of going towards Massaciuccoli Lake before reaching Lucca.

Day 3: Lucca – Montecatini (45 km)

Through a panoramic road you reach the little village of Collodi and the town of Pescia. In Collodi, where the author of Pinocchio spent his childhood, you can visit the famous Pinocchio’s Park (created in 1962) and the aristocratic Villa Garzoni.

In Pescia you can enjoy a quiet stroll among churches, palaces, Renaissance mansions and the local flower street market.

Day 4: Montecatini Roundtour (60 km)

Today’s route offers you again two possibilities. You can relax in one of the most famous thermal cities in Europe and stroll down the narrow lanes of the old city, which is situated on a hill and can be reached by a characteristic cable-railway.

Otherwise a picturesque itinerary will lead you among villas of the Medici family, olive groves, vineyards and beautiful historical farms, going past Vinci, Leonardo’s birthplace (visit to the museum possible).

Day 5: Montecatini – Florence (50/65 km)

Today you have to choose either to start pedalling directly from Montecatini or to shorten the trip through a short train transfer to Pistoia, rich in Romanesque and Renaissance monuments (in particular churches) and having one of the most evocative squares in Italy: Piazza del Duomo (Cathedral Square). From here back onto the saddle, to reach Florence.

Day 6: Florence

Free day. It will be up to you to decide how to spend your time in one of the world’s most beautiful cities!

Day 7: Florence – Empoli – Pisa (40/65 km by bike + 40/65 km by train)

Today you can choose if either starting pedalling directly from Florence and reaching Pisa through a train transfer from Empoli or taking a train to Empoli and riding to Pisa along the river Arno.

Day 8. Pisa

Departure after breakfast.
