Starting at Greve in Chianti, you will cycle uphill to Lamole and then Panzano.
Lamole and Panzano are two picturesque towns located in the Chianti region of Tuscany, Italy. Lamole is a tiny hilltop village known for its stunning views and charming medieval atmosphere. It is also famous for its wine-making tradition and production of high-quality Chianti.
Panzano is a larger town nestled in the hills of the Chianti valley, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. It boasts an impressive history, with an ancient castle and a Romanesque church that attract visitors from all over the world. Panzano is also a great place to indulge in traditional Tuscan cuisine, with renowned restaurants serving up mouth-watering dishes made with local ingredients and wine. Both towns are perfect for a relaxing and romantic getaway in the heart of Tuscany.
The tour is at a leisurely pace (it’s not a race); we often stop to admire the view, take pictures and eat a snack.

Almost at the end of the e-bike tour, we will stop at Castello di Verrazzano. It is a magnificent 12th-century castle located in the heart of the Chianti region in Tuscany, Italy. This beautiful castle is nestled on a hilltop surrounded by lush vineyards, olive groves and forests, offering stunning panoramic views of the Tuscan countryside.
The castle is named after the famous Italian explorer Giovanni da Verrazzano who discovered the bay of New York in 1524. Verrazzano Castle is not only steeped in history and tradition, but it is also a renowned winery that produces some of the finest wines in the region.
A tour of Verrazano Castle and its vineyards is a must-do experience. You will learn about the art of making wine, indulge in tastings of the famous Chianti Classico wines, and discover the rich history of the castle. Plus, the castle’s restaurant serves delicious traditional Tuscan cuisine, made from fresh local ingredients, and its panoramic views of the stunning countryside provide the perfect backdrop for a relaxing and memorable meal.
