Escape to Italy before the end of the year for a last minute cycling in Tuscany break. Tuscany is one of the most spectacular stretches on the Via Francigena, the medieval pilgrimage route from Canterbury also known as the Camino to Rome. At FrancigenaWays.com, the Camino to Rome specialists, we have Tuscan cycling adventures to suit cyclists of all levels.
Autumn is harvest time in Tuscany and temperatures are mild; making it the perfect time to get on your bike and explore Tuscany on two wheels.
From late September to late October and even early November, the region enjoys pleasant temperatures ranging from mid-10s (November) to mid-20s (September), ideal weather conditions for walking and cycling.
Visit in September to witness local vineyards harvesting their grape, travel in October to taste the best mushrooms of the season or head to picturesque San Miniato in November for its world-famous ‘White Truffle Festival’. Foodies on the Via Francigena in Autumn will be in for a real treat.
You can also look forward to seeing many beautiful sights along the route including the historic walled town of Lucca, the UNESCO-listed medieval towers of San Gimignano and magnificent Siena, as well as the stunning rolling landscapes of the Tuscan countryside.
