You may have drunk Ernesto and Giulio Gallo wine?
Well the true history of this race was devised by these two famous wine makers back in 1897.
The Gran Fondo starts and finishes in Siena with 30kms riding on the famous white gravel roads.
Our base is perfectly placed in the town centre, just 500 meters from the start line, and is central to explore bella Siena. This trip has something for everybody, both cyclist and non-cycling partners alike. A pro race, an Italian Gran Fondo, shopping and history. You really do have it all in Siena. The trip is on a bed and breakfast basis, as there are many places to choose from to eat in the town of Sienna instead staying on the hotel.
We offer two packages one being our standard package at £699.95 or should you wish for that extra luxury then we have places in the ONLY 5-star hotel in Siena and this will be £949.95. Please note both packages DO NOT include evening meal, as Siena has so many places to choose from to have an evening meal.
