Magnifique journée en vélo électrique dans la région du Chianti. Des souvenirs innobliables: paysages à couper le souffle et repas avec dégustation de vin commentée dans un vignoble. Nous étions deux couples avec le guide alors pouvions allez à notre rythme. Une suggestion pour une prochaine fois: que les batteries des vélos soient rechargées durant le repas car la mienne était épuisée à la fin du parcours.
