Italy: Tuscan Coast and Isle of Elba Multisport Adventure
Tuscany by the sea
Whether biking atop the unspoiled Renaissance town of Lucca, soaking up a crimson sunset over Elba, or basking in a thermal spring in Saturnia, this week-long biking and walking tour along the coast of Tuscany is nothing short of enchanting.
Toast your adventure-to-come over a savory welcome dinner in the tranquil oasis of your 17th century villa overlooking the hills of Lucca. Ferry to Elba and follow in Napoleon’s footsteps on a hike through forests of bamboo, eucalyptus, magnolia and olive trees to Monte Capanne for jaw-dropping panoramas of the open sea and jagged Italian coastline. Meet the owner of an olive oil company near Suvereto, explore the narrow alleyways and former synagogue of Pitigliano and walk along ancient Etruscan dug-out roads to Sovana. Bike to Saturnia, one of the oldest towns in Italy, and reward yourself with a soak in the sulphur-rich waters of a natural thermal spa and a glass of ruby-red Morellino di Scansano wine.
