Tuscany, a region adorned with the renowned landmarks of Florence, Pisa, and Lucca, is a tapestry woven with threads of both old-world charm and contemporary allure. These iconic destinations echo across the globe, drawing crowds seeking a taste of history and architectural grandeur. Yet, nestled amidst this tourist hubbub are hidden gems like Pietrasanta, Collodi, and the tranquil Lake of Massaciuccoli— oases of peace, steeped in history, traditions, and culture, untouched by the mainstream tourism circuits.

In these lesser-known havens, a distinct rhythm beats, offering an alternative to the bustling city life. Pietrasanta and Collodi whisper tales of a bygone era, while the serene waters of the Lake of Massaciuccoli reflect timeless tranquility. These are places where the essence of Tuscany reveals itself in a more intimate, unexplored manner.

What sets Tuscany apart is the seamless transition between contrasting landscapes within a few kilometers. Traverse from the sun-soaked beaches of the Versilia coast to the rugged peaks of the Apuan Alps, from the marshy expanses surrounding the Lake of Massaciuccoli to the pristine wilderness of the Serchio River Park. Wander through the gentle undulations of the Pizzorne hills, adorned with vineyards and olive groves, only to find yourself amidst the ancient beech and chestnut tree woods of the Apennines.

Here, the dichotomy of lifestyles coexists harmoniously within the embrace of nature’s ever-changing canvas. Tuscany, beyond its celebrated landmarks, is a mosaic of diverse experiences—each town, each landscape, a stroke in the masterpiece of this enchanting region. Explore the well-trodden paths, but don’t shy away from the uncharted, for in the hidden corners lie the heart and soul of Tuscany.

Highlights of the tour:

  • Pietrasanta – the crossroad of sculptors from all over the world
  • The walls of Lucca, and its old town center
  • The Leaning Tower and Piazza dei Miracoli in Pisa
  • Montecarlo oil and wine
  • The nature of the Park of Migliarino and of the Lake of Massaciuccoli
  • The History of Pinocchio in Collodi


Day 1
Arrival in Lucca
The hometown of Giacomo Puccini. Known all over the world owing to its monumental walls and to the Giunigi Tower, but you will truly get to know the town by wandering around it! There are some evocative spots oozing history, tradition, and passion: when walking on the Altopascio alley, it seems like going back to the Middle Ages, but it is not the only one. Many other spots will tell you about the history of the town, you will be surprised by the large number of gardens, churches, and buildings. Check-in around 14.00 at your charming hotel in Lucca. There will be a briefing, bike setting, GPS, and map delivery. Airport - railway transfers from Pisa or Florence airport (on request). Overnight in Lucca.
Day 2
Pisa / 42km - +10m
The first-day trip will lead us to Pisa. Along the bike path, traced by the Serchio River, which witnessed many harsh battles in the past, you can freely admire the countryside and the villages, which magnificently surround it. Once you reach San Giuliano Terme, you will proceed on a countryside road, with low traffic, for about 1.5km, and reach another bike path along the water main, built under the Medici family reign, which leads us directly under the Leaning Tower. And then, the trip ends in the park of San Rossore-Migliarino. From the railway station, bearing the same name, you can catch a train and go back to Lucca.
Day 3
The Villas of Lucca / 53km - +220m
This trip starts on the bike path along the Serchio River, but this time from the opposite direction. You reach Ponte a Moriano and enter onto the road of the Villas, a countryside road with light and fun ups and downs, surrounded by vineyards and olive tree groves, where you will meet Villa Oliva, Grabau, Reale, Mansi, and Torrigiani, then the town of Collodi, the famous creator of the puppet Pinocchio with the magnificent Villa Garzoni. Once you cross the valley, you will reach the Medieval fort of Montecarlo, an enchanting village located at the height of 160 meters, surrounded by vineyards.
Day 4
The Compitese / 40km - +200m
You start pedaling along the Roman-style water main of Nottolini and arrive at the feet of the Pisani Mountains, hills covered with olive tree groves, pine groves, chestnut trees, woods, ancient bridges, and water streams, centuries-old terraces of old buildings spread out, stone houses and villas, embellished with magnificent examples of ancient camellias. Welcome to the "Valley of the Compitese", in the south of Capannori, a few kilometers from Lucca, commonly known as the Borgo delle Camelie, the village of the Camellias, exotic flowers, elegant and refined, which have found their perfect habitat in these places.
Day 5
Train trip to Florence, which was declared a World Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. The place where the Renaissance came into being, is universally known as one of the cradles of art and architecture. It is for sure one of the most beautiful cities in the world, owing to its many monuments and museums - among which the Dome, Santa Croce church, the Uffizi Gallery, Ponte Vecchio, Piazza della Signoria, and Palazzo Pitti.
Day 6
The Versilia Coast / 46km - +200m
After a frantic day out in Florence, we are ready for a nice pedaling trip and a little relaxation on the shore, crossing the hills of Pieve Santo Stefano, you will reach Monte Magno, and after a fun slope, you will meet Camaiore and Pietrasanta, and from here, you can reach the beaches of the Versillia Coast, and you cannot miss out on a stop near the shore to admire the majestic Apaun Alps and the coats. The strains of the day end in Viareggio.
Day 7
The Lake of Massaciuccoli / 39km - +160m
Three hours of slow pedaling to enjoy and taste nature and its captivating scents! On a flourishing bike path, you will reach the Castle of Nozzano, the first stop to admire the wonderful view over the farmed fields, of the surrounding hills as well as of the other fortified places on the borderline between Lucca and Pisa: the Torre dell'Aquila and the castles of Castiglione and Ripafratta. Let's start pedaling again up to the sweet rise of Balbano Mountain (one hundred meters in three kilometers, with a maximum gradient of 4%), after reaching the top, you must stop for a snapshot of the beautiful view, overlooking the lake of Massaciuccoli, the coast, and the Tuscan Island chain. After a fun downhill dip, you pedal along the roads, running along the lake and the pleasant ups and downs of Gattaiola.
Day 8
Departure day... Time to say goodbye, a good flight back home, or a pleasant stay in Italy.
