Only GreatCycling offers this biking adventure of a lifetime – 8 days deep in the heart of Etruscan culture and the home of the Tuscan Maremma Cowboy. Yes, this is the Old West Italian style.

The Tuscan Maremma is famous for its Butteri – cowboys who rode horses for centuries, managing the distinctive local cattle breed. Off the beaten track, this is the pathway into a land of wild beauty, where ancient traditions continue to flourish and original Tuscan life remains unchanged.

Cyclists start this fascinating trip in a deluxe upscale hotel set in a Southern Tuscan parkland retreat of unspoiled country back roads few tourists ever see. On the fifth day, adventure and leisure moves to the Maremma as the tour enters the coastal lowlands. Here, the perfect hotel welcomes you to enjoy the natural beauty of the area, where land and sea meet. The Maremma hotel is near costal beaches and boasts a swimming pool and a traditional Tuscan menu of hearty soups and grilled meats, prepared by its chef of 35 years.

GreatCycling has all sorts of itineraries to suit every interest. At every turn, the roads lead deep into the hills of Maremma to the Area del Tufo, one of the most important Etruscan hubs. Butted by the towns of Pitigliano, Sorano and Sovana, this is a region of volcanic porous rock used for centuries as building material.
