TUSCANY TOURS AT THE PERFECT PACE
Private excursions on bike or e-bike across the most authentic Tuscan landscapes in the area of Volterra, Lajatico and Terricciola.
The best pace to enjoy the spectacular farmland of Tuscany hitting both paved and gravel roads with hardly any traffic. Spectacular routes spotted with hundreds of ancient farmer cottages and colorful fields alternated by vineyards and lines of cypress trees… like in a fairy tale!

Arianna & Friends arrange one-day private guide biking excursions (5 to 6 hours) with lovely stops for picknicks at local wineries or olive farms. You can opt for a mountain bike or an e-bike, if you need some support. We also arrange more-day biking holidays across the marvellous hilly countryside of Tuscany.

An English speaking biking tour guide meets you at our premises in Terricciola or collects you at your location and shows you beautiful and panoramic biking routes. A surcharge applies if you are located more than 20 minutes from our premises in La Rosa by Terricciola.
A pick-nick in the fields or light lunch in an agriturismo is always included in our offers.

We offer three itineraries with different topics:

Biking & Extra Virgin Olive Oil
