Italian Vineyards & Romantic Coast

La natura può più dell'arte: Nature is beyond all teaching—or so the Italian proverb goes. Here, in Tuscany's Maremma, nature abounds. Countryside, vineyards and farms.

Straight Talk

We want to make sure you're on the trip that's right for you. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Roads & Traffic

From the picturesque Tuscan hills to the region's stunning coast, accessing Maremma's contemporary seaside towns and authentic fishing villages requires some riding along busy coastal roads. You should be comfortable riding with traffic or opting to hop in the van. To make the most of the region, we'll start and end our bike rides with strategic shuttles to avoid as much traffic as possible.
