Chianti by bike

My Husband and I travelling to Tuscany in June 2022.
Our plan would be to arrive in Florence, then travel to the Greve for around 5 to 6 days, I know there is a bus to Greve from Florence, but how do you get to the bus station from the airport. Our flight arrives at 10.55, would we be better staying in Florence for the first night. Are the buses regular on a Saturday.
We are keen cyclists, so during our time in the countryside we are going to hire bicycles and use these for travelling around, so we do not want to hire a car.
Can anyone recommend a good agriturismo that we can easily reach by bus and walk to from the bus stop.
Thanks

Visiting Greve in Chianti

Buongiorno,

You can easily catch a bus or the tram to the center of Florence, it is approx a 10 - 15-minute ride depending on the traffic and they will take you to the train station, which is approximately 100 meters from the bus station. Buses are regular on Saturdays - UNLESS it is a holiday - but June has no Saturday holidays. They are not regular on Sundays. Greve in Chianti also has a bike rental place, though you might also enjoy a small bespoke tour for a day, combining off the beaten track paths, special vineyards and van support so you can move a little bit out of the area (like maybe sometime in Siena or San Gimignano?)

As for accommodations in Greve in Chianti - I have visited both of these places, and I access that each have a lot to offer:

Viticcio is slightly outside the city...but walkable and is an amazing position and vineyard

Antico Pastificcio is right in the city - but with a lovely country garden

Buon Viaggio,
