    What to Expect
    Meet your foodie guide in front of Lucca’s train station in the early afternoon, and hop on a provided bike for your two-wheeled tour around town. Join the many locals who get around by bike, as it's the ideal way to navigate the city’s flat but narrow medieval streets. Follow your guide on a leisurely sightseeing route that passes many local landmarks including the San Frediano church, Guinigi Tower, and plenty of other photo-worthy stops.

    Start things off on a sweet note with a scoop of artisan gelato in your choice of decadent, seasonal flavors. Continue on to visit several of Lucca’s best delicatessens, where you can meet passionate purveyors and taste fine Tuscan products sourced from the surrounding countryside. Try nutty pecorino cheese from the Garfagnana Mountains, perfectly paired with mondiola salami and bruschetta. Learn about the raw ingredients used to make farro soup, a Luccan specialty, and try different varieties of extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

    Finally, pop into one of the bars built into the historic city walls for a glass of Sangiovese wine or a classic Italian cocktail, served with more typical snacks. Chat with your guide about the region’s culinary culture and get recommendations for authentic dinner spots before cycling back to the train station to finish the 3-hour tour.
