Tuscany Leggera

From $1,495

No one does Tuscany better than inGamba. This is our spiritual home, where it all began, and still one of our favorite places in the world. It was there that our founder, João Correia, lived and trained while he was a pro and dreamed of being able to share the area’s cycling and culinary bounty with like-minded travelers.

From the medieval cobbled streets of Siena to the narrowest country lane, we know every inch of the place like the back of our hands and we promise that if you join us there, you’re in for an unforgettable adventure. You’ll be staying in the heart of Chianti, at the charming Borgolecchi guest house, where the comfortable rooms, peaceful atmosphere, and bounty of freshly-cooked meals, bursting with local flavor, will leave a lasting impression.

Riding in Chianti is characterized by sweeping panoramas, winding ribbons of perfect tarmac, challenging climbs and thrilling descents. You can spend hours here without coming across other road users, and when you do, the locals are always friendly. In fact, it’s the people who give the place a lot of its charm, and over the course of your stay with us you’ll see why as you get to meet local artisans and culinary masters, all eager to give you a taste.
