Tuscan countryside bike tour and saffron tasting

Vicchio Trip Overview

Enjoy a 15 kilometer bike tour around the Tuscan countryside and discover the saffron’s secrets, just a few kilometres from Florence and into Mugello, a little slice of heaven.

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. Meet the local farm animals, see the bee hives and vineyard, and taste some delicious saffron-flavored products (honey, cheese, biscuits, herbal tea), while the owners show you how to grow saffron.
