Chianti E-Bike Tour of the Castles

Setting off from the centre of Radda in Chianti, we will leave Porta Valdarnese behind us and cycle into a magical setting; after 2 km, we will reach Villa Vistarenni, an impressive 16th Century style villa on our hills, and then continue on towards the Castle of San Donato in Perano, a former military facility in Roman times, which has now been converted into a private villa. The thrills don’t end here, because as we cycle along the white road, one of the most famous roads in the area, we will reach the Castle of Vertine, where a visit to this small town which is still fortified and inhabited will be inevitable. After a brief stop, we will set off again towards the Castle of Meleto, cycling through the village of Gaiole in Chianti first, and then onwards in the direction of Siena. We will then reach Meleto, an old Castle of military origin, which has over the years been the subject of disputes between the republic of Florence and Siena. As we continue on our E-bikes through the vineyards and magnificent views, we will come across small towns such as Castagnoli, Rietine and San Martino al Vento. Yet the tour is not over yet, as we have to change hills, so we will begin our descent and then climb pack up to Castello di Ama, a former Etruscan village, which became a fortified town over the following years. Two more kilometres and we will reach Poggio San Polo for a typical light lunch in a small farm, offering local cold cuts, excellent pasta and a delicious glass of Chianti. After lunch, we will cycle through our hills for a very simple 8 km to make our way back to Radda.
