    Culture

    Tuscany is an Italian province which borders the Mediterranean.

    Italian is spoken there.

    During your stay, we will show you the entirety of this region and share with you all the cultural and gastronomic anecdotes.

    Accommodation and food

    Our Camp'n'Ride stays are only experienced in converted buses and campervans.

    The pitches are included in your stay. Any additional costs are your responsibility (electricity, water, etc.)

    You are responsible for managing your meals. In the morning and evening, meals can be taken in your van. At midday, we alternate between picnic and restaurant (not included).

    Climate

    Tuscany is a region with a privileged, Mediterranean climate, often beautiful.

    The temperatures are generally ideal for mountain biking, but due to the proximity to the sea, the weather can sometimes change quickly.

    You will therefore need to bring warmer clothing for the rain in the event of a wetter or colder episode.

    Security

    Tuscany is a very safe region and poses no risks.

    We also take special care to choose safe locations.
