A lot of the attraction of Tuscany is getting back to a slower life. The flavors, the landscapes, the art – it all makes us look back to a simpler time. That’s why this is an ideal place in Italy to tour by bicycle. The one downside might be that it is hilly except for along the rivers and coast. But don’t be put off by a few steep hills. What goes up must come down, and as you’re freewheeling you can look around at all that beauty – your reward for slogging up the hill.
