PISA

Starting from € 782.00

A week of cycling emotions during which we explore the enchanting landscapes of Romagna, the Marche and Tuscany.

We’ll spend the first two days in Riccione, with excursions into the countryside of Romagna and we’ll enjoy a Monday of great food and traditions at our country farmhouse in Vecciano.

On Tuesday we’ll leave early in the morning and head to Tuscany, accompanied by a guide and a minibus, arriving after three stops and two overnights in Poppi and Florence, in the city of Pisa with its famous leaning tower.
We’ll return from Pisa to Riccione by minibus on Thursday afternoon and on Friday we’ll cycle around Romagna once again!

An experience packed with wonderful landscapes and exciting cycling stretches such as to delight the senses and strengthen the body, while always in the mould of Dory Style philosophy, meaning having fun, eating well and relaxing.

Florence by bike "à la carte"

On the first stage, between Riccione and Borgocorsignano, we’ll travel through Santarcangelo di Romagna, Sogliano and Mercato Saraceno, all villages that are part of the famous Nove Colli, the most famous amateur cycling race in Italy that many friends of the Dory already know well. The first real mountain pass will be Mandrioli, a 7-kilometre climb through the Casentino Forests between Bagno di Romagna and Badia Prataglia and then down to Poppi and Borgo Corsignano where we’ll spend the first night.

The second day we’ll tackle the spectacular Consuma Pass on our way to Florence, a 54-kilometre stage that will allow you to visit the city of the Medici, with its works of art and impressive architecture, like the Ponte Vecchio, the Duomo and Palazzo Vecchio, taking all the time that these masterpieces deserve. We’ll have dinner in the city, then head to the hotel for our overnight stay.

The third and final stage, which covers 108 kilometres, will be mainly flat and will visit four of the most important cities in Tuscany – Prato, Pistoia, Lucca and finally Pisa, the city that’s famous all over the world for its leaning tower.
