Launched last year, this popular and fun tour is back in 2018. Guests get the thrill of riding the Gran Fondo Firenze, which starts at the iconic Brunolleschi Duomo in the centre of the spectacular and beautiful city of Florence. There are lots of flights from the UK to both Florence and Pisa. This tour offers much that our flagship tour offers, but over 5 nights rather than 7.
Our flagship tour has been years in the making and we think you’ll love it. Tuscany is one of the best places to ride a bike in the world. That’s why it’s the region where many pro cyclists live and train. It has everything going for it – from short, sharp climbs, to long ascents, and from fast descents, to the technical Strade Bianche, Chianti has it all. What’s more, Chianti offers some of the best food and wine in the world. All of this, combined with excellent service from our dedicated team, creates the LA CORSA Chianti experience.
Whether you’re looking to light up the climbs or take in the sights and smells at a more moderate tempo, we’ll ride the same beautiful roads used in races like L’Eroica and the World Championships. Along the way, we’ll show you all the little things that make Tuscany the base of choice for so many of the peloton’s top professionals.
You’ll be staying in a spacious, self-contained apartment in Borgo Sicelle, an authentic Tuscan villa in a tiny hamlet in the heart of Chianti. The villa is comprised of self-contained apartments with kitchenettes and en suite bathrooms for each guest. Set around a relaxing pool, each suite offers stunning vistas over the entire valley.
All meals are included in the price of the tour. You’ll be savouring incredible local wines while dining in excellent trattoria, handpicked by Tour Director Andy. LA CORSA guarantee incredible food and wine and the warmest local hospitality.
