Cycling World Championships Lucca Tuscany to host the 2013 Sporting Event of the Year

Five years after Varese 2008 and this year's event in Limburg (The Netherlands) between 15 and 23/09, Italy is set to host the 2013 UCI Road World Championships.

After beating off all its competitors, the Union Cycliste Internationale has chosen the combination "Firenze-Lucca-Montecatini-Pistoia" for millions of fans to follow their sporting heroes along the narrow roads of Tuscany in this spectacular event.

Tenuta San Pietro and its guests will be within close distance of some of the road schedule to provide customers with an unique opportunity to combine a weekend getaway in one of Lucca's most elegant country Resort Hotel with a fun-packed holiday break.

Book early to plan your 2013 holidays in Lucca and the Tuscan countryside.
