"There’s no paradise on earth, but cyclists will reach it regardless.” So wrote the philosopher Mauro Parrini, as if he’d been inspired by the hills and nature of the Valdarno Aretino e Fiorentino. This charismatic countryside is dotted with villages, towns, castles and strongholds that make the bike ride even more exciting.
Get on your bike to explore the countless routes around rural Tuscany.
The Valdarno is a varied and magical part of Tuscany that adheres to the concept of an open-air museum, capable of attracting Italian and international travellers. Along your bike ride, admire the museums, exhibitions and churches that still house priceless frescoes and paintings.
The bike trails we recommend are all signposted and can be travelled all year round, in legs or personalized. You’ll find plenty of useful facilities, such as bike repairers, bike sharing and places to eat and sleep.
