The Etruscan coast is also a land of ancient cycling traditions, champions and important races. For fans of this sport nothing is better that riding a bike along these roads so full of history. The routes can be chosen with varying severity and adaptable for all – families with children, amateur cyclists or professionals.
Coastal routes, from the sea to the hills or immersed in nature, poetic routes or more suited for those that wish to visit towns and works of art.

One of the routes one should take note of is that which winds between Bolgheri, Bibonna, and Marina di Bibbonna and which then arrives at Cecina travelling through long avenues of Cypresses and past beautiful mediaeval hamlets that are worth a stop between one spurt and the next, with the possibility of viewing monuments of great interest such as the Chapel of San Giudo.
If, however, you are leaving from Donoratico then you can have a beautiful bike ride to the sea ending at Marina di Donoratico, going through the pine woods, along the promenade and going towards the mouth of the River Seggio, an ideal area for watching the most enchanting sunsets!
Of great environmental interest is the cycle path from San Vincenzo to Piombino, it travels along the edge of Parco di Rimigliano and ends up at the Gulf of Baratti with its wonderful beaches and natural coves. It is a very interesting area, where you can visit the Etruscan necropolis at Baratti and the ancient town of Populonia with its archaeological excavations.
We can provide our guests with tour guides so you can have time to decide what and where you will go on which day.
