Tuscany in Bicycle accompanies you to discover the Val d’Orcia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Our desire is to make visitors discover the treasures of Tuscany in an ecological, safe and exciting way, in a professional way and with  and great attention to the quality of the service offered.

You will get to know the most authentic Tuscany in the saddle of very comfortable e-bikes, along white roads far from mass tourism that will make you admire breathtaking landscapes, discover historic centers where time has stopped and try the products that are the flagship of the regional food and wine. We will immerse you in the countryside designed by man, a landscape dotted with farmhouses, villas, fields, olive groves and vineyards protected by ancient villages and experience nature among woods, lakes and thermal baths.

In 2004 the Val d’Orcia Artistic, Natural and Cultural Park became part of the list of UNESCO sites as a “cultural landscape”, a heritage of all humanity, for its excellent state of conservation over the centuries.

The countryside and the hills are characterized by an environment that tells the symbiotic relationship, the interactions between man and nature, giving us a fascinating territory where agriculture orders the countryside and connects old farmhouses, through white roads and characteristic rows of cypresses. The UNESCO recognition is due to the excellent state of conservation, a natural landscape that benefited from skilled human interventions and influenced the painters of the Sienese School, the Renaissance artists, as well as the architecture that still today show off its villages, built in medieval times or Renaissance, forming panoramas of a poignant beauty.

VIPs and directors could not resist the charm of the Valley. Just to name a few, it is enough to remember Richard Gere, who produces Brunello di Montalcino wine in his San Filippo estate or the director Andreij Tarkovskij who chose Bagno Vignoni to shoot some scenes of the wonderful “Nostalghia”. Fans of Academy Awards will know by heart the images of Ridley Scott’s “Gladiator” or Antony Minghella’s “The English Patient”, filmed between San Quirico and Pienza. A poem to be enjoyed with the eyes, with the scents that enter from the nose and fill the heart, a territory that shows its beauty in a different way in every season.

The Valdorcian municipalities are five: Castiglione d’Orcia, Montalcino, Pienza, Radicofani and San Quirico d’Orcia, all in the province of Siena. In addition to these major centers there are numerous fortified villages, religious and civil settlements of great charm.

You will become aware of the uniqueness of this valley thanks to our excursions, which will make you grasp the most intimate and profound side of a place that over the centuries has made travelers from all over the world fall in love with it.
