To quote Jackie Marchand, the owner of Woman Tours, the only all women bike tour company in America and the coordinator of this adventure: "Our Italian bike tour begins in the picturesque, medieval town of Orvieto, 60 miles north of Rome. We will bicycle the beautiful Tuscany region where local traditions endure and ancient civilizations echo through the present. This tour offers a balance of biking through vivid countryside and along the Tyrrhenian sea providing a wonderful blend of biking, history, culture and flavors. We work with the best guides, enjoy the best foods and experience all that this famous region of Italy has to offer."
