Countryside bike tour In Mugello with saffron tasting
Enjoy a bike tour in the Tuscan countryside and discover the saffron's secrets immersed in the atmosphere of this family-owned farmhouse of Mugello.

After a short walk into the small village of Vicchio and around its beautiful lake, begin your ride into the countryside, away from traffic.

Along the way you’ll meet a Romanesque Church, a Villa from the Medicean era, and see the home of Giotto, always surrounded by nature and the typical Tuscan landscape.

Halfway through the ride, you’ll stop at a saffron farm. Take your time to sit immersed in the magic atmosphere of this family-owned farmhouse. Meet the local farm animals, see the bee hives and vineyard, and taste some delicious saffron-flavoured products (honey, cheese, biscuits, beer, herbal tea), while the owners show you how to grow saffron.

You can easily reach the meeting place by train from Firenze S.M.Novella station to Vicchio (about 50 min scenic journey through the countryside). Ask me for the train schedule. Ask me for any information or special request you need.
