Tuscany by motorbike
Tuscany is one of the best places to explore on motorbike during the summer months. Germans were the pioneers in this kind of tourism quite a couple of years ago and nowadays it is more and more tourists who choose this means to travel through the region.
Tuscany by motorbike is an excellent option since our land has lots of winding roads and landscapes, where motorbike lovers can enjoy unmatchable views. For that reason in particular, and for those who are thinking of traveling round the region on two wheels, here comes the recommendation of two wonderful places:
Itinerary 1 La Valdorcia
In this blog we have talked a lot about this spellbinding region, world patrimony of the Unesco, located in the south of Tuscany. If you’re planning to visit the area we suggest the following:
Pienza, Montepulciano, Bagno Vignoni, Montichiello
If you’re looking for a good restaurant, you’ll find it in Montichiello (La Porta restaurant, 30 euros per person); while a much better and cheaper one is Oasi La Foce, an eating spot in the area of la Foce. Reaching la Foce from is complicated because you have to take a gravel road from Montepulciano. To make it easier for you I’ve attached the google map.
Even though reaching Oasis la Foce is not that easy, the trip to the location is really worth it as you’ll get the chance of passing by the area where the most typical pictures of Tuscany are taken!
Itinerary 2 Chainti
Chianti is also a spectacular region due to its breath-taking landscapes and its rolling hills, ladened with medieval towers and castles.
Thus, we recommend the following itinerary:
Castelnuovo Berardenga, San Gusmè, Monteriggioni all the way to San Gimignano.
Here I recommend the Bar dell Orso, a cute Tuscan restaurant, offering cold cuts, chesses and wines, located at the foot of Monteriggioni village.
A tip for motor bikers: gas stations opening hours differ from those in Spain, as they are not open 24 hs. per day. Many of them close at 7 or 8 pm., an in some cases are close on Sundays. Therefore, we suggest always having enough petrol, especially when passing by small villages.
As usual, I hope you “bikers” find this information useful.
