Bike trip to Villa Reale
Bike tour along the Via Francigena to reach the historical villas around Lucca

The countryside of Lucca is the ideal setting for cycling tours and is easily reachable from the city center. 

Thanks to the Serchio river cycle path you will avoid road traffic, and reach natural landscapes in no time! 
Following the northern variant of the Via Francigena you will reach Ponte a Moriano and Via delle ville, where you will admire some of the most important historic villas in Tuscany: Villa Oliva, Villa Grabau and Villa Reale

In particular, it is possible to visit the wonderful park of Villa Reale with your own bicycle (entrance fee not included) and stop as long as you want for a picnic or cool off at the villa's cafe. 

This tour is available either as guided tour or as self-guided tour with our app/gps route.
