About
"On the well-cultivated hills, that surround the fertile plain of Lucca on every side, the pleasant villas of the patrician families are scattered among vineyards and olive groves" (Georg Christoph Martini). Lucca and its villas, a heritage that undoubtedly deserves to be discovered and deepened. And what better way, if not the calm and relaxed state that the bicycle can bring, to enjoy a similar experience? We'll start the tour from the city center and following the path along the river, in the open countryside, we'll reach these wonderful historic mansions. We'll visit the most sumptuous and regal , the "Royal Villa" , once belonged to Elisa Bonaparte, sister of Napoleon Bonaparte. We'll return back to the city with the memory of a truly unique experience!

Great afternoon cycling from Lucca
Aug 2020 • Couples
Great afternoon out bike riding to Villa Reale from Lucca. Alessandro our guide was knowledgeable, and delivered a tour which throughly exceeded our expectations. His English language skills were great, but more importantly was his knowledge and love of Lucca and the surrounding area. We would definitely do another tour with him. The ride itself even in 32 degree heat was easily manageable for two moderately fit people in their 40s, so why not give it a go and at the end of the 4 hour tour we felt we had earnt our aperol spritz!

Tuscan Countryside highlights
Sep 2019
What an amazing day, the sun was shining whilst Alessandro took us on a journey on quiet paths/roads into the Italian Countryside on the outskirts of Lucca. He had clearly done all the research so we could relax and enjoy our journey. We heard about the areas history and traditions whilst meandering towards Villa Reale, which has stunning gardens and a fascinating background (it also has the most gorgeous recently opened coffee shop/bar). From there we went a short journey to a farmhouse for lunch - one of the highlights was meeting the fantastic family who cooked our lunch and made us feel right at home. Most of the dishes included produce that had been grown by the family and the farmhouse itself sat in next to their vineyard. As well as the most delicious food there was plentiful wine to be sampled too. My group of 4 had the most wonderful time and will definitely return next time in Lucca. Very highly recommended.

Sep 2019 • Friends
Went on the trip to Villa Reale. Although the countryside and villa were beautiful, the highlight was the lunch at the farm (really lovely people and amazing food & wine). Alessandro was a great guide, very friendly and knowledgeable about Lucca & it's history. The ride itself was on flat paths with just a couple of sections on minor roads. There were some small gravelly slopes to take care on. If you're even only moderately fit you'll be able to do this trip no problem. The bikes were fairly new mountain bikes (boys bikes had pannier racks and & girls had baskets). We were a group of two couples and it was the perfect day out from Lucca. Highly reccommended.

A PERFECT afternoon
Met the lovely Alessandro, he was early to the meeting spot. We spent a wonderful afternoon riding out to the villas and walking around the beautiful gardens at the “royal villa”. Great stories on our ride. Ride was casual along quite local roads, river paths and through parks.

We never could have figured out the route without a guide. Alessandro is a really, really nice guy.
