About the Area

What's Nearby

  • Your first night is at a hotel in Rome and the following nights are at small family-run properties in Chianciano Terme. It is important to note that accommodation in Europe tend to be quite different to other areas of the world you may have travelled in. Buildings and rooms are generally old and may not have been renovated or maintained to the highest standard. Downtown hotels in Europe were not built to be hotels but rich owners houses, which have been changed into hotels. Therefore unusual room sizes are common as large rooms have been partitioned in the past, resulting in rather "thin" walls. Reception areas, rooms and bathrooms tend to be very small as they were often added into an existing room, and may have a hand nozzle rather than a conventional shower head.
  • On this trip you can expect to stay in small family-run hotels (with the exception of the start and finish hotels, which are often larger city hotels), which will vary a little in standard and facilities: some may not have elevators, air-conditioning or English-speaking staff, but most importantly all are locally-run, with some traditional character, and in excellent central locations to give you maximum time for exploring the sights. You can expect to find clean, safe, simple accommodation in convenient locations. Staff can occasionally demonstrate less than perfect customer service. As accommodation is in short supply, especially during the summer months, hotels can charge a premium and there is sometimes little motivation to improve facilities.
  • The cycling grading on this trip is moderate, with both road and off-road cycling, and some degree of experience is required. There will be occasional long days in the saddle, multiple ascents and descents daily, with cycling between 35 - 70 kilometers per day. Good fitness and skill level are recommended.
  • Intercity transport on this trip will mostly be by train and occasionally by local bus. The bus and train systems in Italy are generally good, with seat reservations and toilet/snack facilities on longer journeys. Keeping to schedules is notoriously not one of the Italian transport system's specialties, so pack your music player, a good book and some Italian phrases, and kick-back and enjoy the views with the locals.
  • Bikes for cycling days are mountain-bike style with city tires, luggage rack, front suspension with helmet included. You will also have a local guide to accompany the group on cycling days.
  • Luggage will be transferred between night stops on cycling days by private van. Please note that you MUST be comfortable carrying your own luggage as there will be a lot of up and down stairs on this trip due to the nature of station layouts in Italy (very few are equipped with escalators or elevators). Between public transport and hotels you may be required to carry your luggage short distances (up to 20 mins walk), in larger cities you may travel by metro or city bus, and occasionally the group will take taxis to and from hotels.

This was the trip of a lifetime and although VERY physically challenging, the Tuscany countryside made it all worthwhile.
