Tuscany has no shortage of admirers, so avoiding crowds can be difficult. This is a fun way to leave the tourist trail behind and discover one of the area’s tucked-away treasures: Monte Senario.
If your looking for some diverting exercise while in Florence, this bike ride is a great option. A short bus ride takes you to the top of a mountain with a small Abby, Monte Senario. The mountain provides a spectacular view of the entire region for miles around. Then you get to bike mostly downhill to a lovely villa that makes a small about of wine and olive oil. Lunch follows at a small local restaurant with delicious food and some of the wine from the same villa you visited. The ride back to Florence is amazing with expansive vistas of Tuscany and Florence complete with with vineyards, olive groves and rolling hills. Our tour guides Bill and Pano were friendly and informative. One of our group members popped a tire and they fixed it in seconds. This tour is a great way to burn off some of the extra calories from all the pasta and cheese!
