Discover the epic and ultimate experience of heroic cycling with our Eroica Vintage style package, dedicated to those seeking an unforgettable cycling experience at the fairy tale location of Castello Banfi Wine Resort in Poggio alle Mura, Montalcino.

An exclusive package designed for those who want to live the complete vintage cycling experience without having to move every day: a resident tour that allows you to enjoy the territory and culture of Tuscany at your own pace.

The route has been reduced to two stages to allow you to focus on the best cycling and cultural experiences that the Montalcino area has to offer. Thanks to our support shuttle, you can reach daily starting and ending points without any stress:

  • You will ride on classic vintage bicycles, dressed in vintage cycling clothing,
  • You will ride through the rolling hills of Tuscany, discovering the eternal beauty of the territory of Brunello and Val d'Orcia, Crete Senesi;
  • Along the way, you will stop at some of the most iconic locations, including medieval towns, castles, and vineyards, and get a taste of the authentic Tuscan lifestyle.

The real gem of this Eroica Getaway package is the accommodation in the charming Castello Banfi Wine Resort, an enchanted place that exudes charm and prestige. This luxury residence represents an oasis of tranquility immersed in the amazing Tuscan countryside, where our guests can spend moments of pure relaxation. With unparalleled attention to detail, Castello Banfi Wine Resort offers exclusive services: the wine cellar with a wide selection of premium Castello Banfi wines and tastings, elegant and refined restaurants to taste the authenticity of Italian and Mediterranean cuisine.
