Bicycling in Tuscany - First Visit

Jump to last reply

Looking for suggestions of a Tuscan hill town to stay in that would allow me to explore that town on foot, and take a bike ride into picturesque surrounding countryside at least one day. I have 3.5 days to play with, when I'll be on my own without a car. (I'm an active middle-aged woman from California.) My preference is to stay in one town and bicycle a couple of days from there using it as a base if there are pretty rides of 15 or 20 miles - perhaps to other towns, including towns I could ride to and train back from with the bike. I could also bicycle just one day, and bus/train to another town for the day, or overnight.

I need a store to rent the bike, affordable hostel/hotel options, nice restaurants that aren't too pricey. I'll be there the last week of June on my first trip to Tuscany. I don't want to spend a lot of time in lines to get into popular sites during the high season - walking the streets of a town, riding in the countryside, and eating good food are priorities. I know it's going to be warm. Need to return to Florence fairly easily.

I will have already spent 3 days in Florence, and stayed in an agriturismo for three nights near Pienza, and visited Pienza, Montepulciano, and Cortona.

Thanks for any thoughts.
