Throughout the tour an experienced guide will be on hand to lead and assist the group by explaining nature and history of these incredible places.

We will start our five-day journey in stages from the southern part of the Pisan Hills.

Walking the trails in a northerly direction, there will be no shortage of colors, scents and breathtaking views. Among our first stops will be Santa Luce, known for a few years now as the “Tuscan Provence” for the many lavender crops that adorn the hillsides. And it is from the processing of this aromatic plant that various manufacturers in the area create cosmetic, homeopathic and personal wellness products. Also in Santa Luce, there will be no shortage of visits to the Santa Luce Lake Nature Reserve, which is an important destination each year for a wide variety of migratory birds.

But the hills are also used to grow forage, grains and other plants, such as barley and hops-two key ingredients for beer production. It is precisely during one of our stops that we will have the opportunity to taste a few glasses of it and, most importantly, to get to know those who produce it starting from the cultivation of the raw materials.
If so far our gazes have been gladdened by the sight of the sea peeking out in the distance behind the hills, moving inland, it will be the small ancient villages that will be the backdrop to our journey. Chianni and Rivalto are two examples. Our tour will end in Terricciola, a village known for its soil that lends itself well to the production of excellent wines and, for this reason, home of the Wine Route of the Pisan Hills.
What better way to end a trip than by laughing together over a glass of good wine?

A 5-day vacation riding modern E-bikes, where we will meet producers, Farms and be able to immerse ourselves firsthand in the beauty of nature while discovering its unique and unmistakable flavors.
