Discover the Via Francigena and San Gimignano on an E-Bike
On our e-bike tour you will discover one of the most beautiful areas of Tuscany, the Val d’Elsa. We will cycle along one of the oldest roads from the Middle Ages, now a UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Via Francigena. This road connects Canterbury with Rome and has been abandoned for decades. Thanks to the breathtaking views you can enjoy along the road, the Via Francigena has recently been rediscovered. Before arriving in San Gimignano, the undisputed queen of the Val d'Elsa, we will pass Colle Val d'Elsa, an ancient medieval village. We will then retrace a stretch of railway that recently has been used as a cycle path, it’s a fantastic example of eco-sustainability.<br>The total distance covered on the bikes is 40km (25 miles) with an elevation gain of 500m (1650 feet).<br>If you are staying in Florence and you don’t have a car, we can organize transport for you, please just let us know in advance.
