What You Can Expect

Florence Electric Bike Tour with Farm and Wine Bar Visit

Enjoy your city bike tour and discover the beautiful city of Florence!

Meet your host in central Florence, and hop aboard your electric bike – a regular two-wheeled bicycle with a handy electric motor that kicks in when pedaling! Riding your electric bike is simple, but your host will deliver a comprehensive safety briefing and practice session to put you at ease.

Pedal behind your host and away from the busy city streets to the nearby hill town of Fiesole, an enchanting Etruscan town that enjoys incredible panoramas of the Tuscan countryside. Ride along the peaceful hill roads and stop at a working farm on the town’s outskirts.

Take a break to soak up the views and browse the farm shop for snacks (own expense), and then start to work your way back down into Florence. Stop for photos at Piazzale Michelangelo, a popular Florence terrace stacked into the hillside, and then visit the Church of San Miniato al Monte – one of the city’s lesser-known gems – to see a medley of art and architecture from different eras.

After cycling along the pretty Florentine streets near the River Arno, head inside a cozy enoteca (wine bar) to try some typical Chianti-region wine and food. Snack on tasty tidbits like fennel salami or bruschetta with red or white wine, and then hop back on your electric bike and pedal into Florence’s historical center.

The downtown streets are scattered with monuments, so your host will stop frequently to share stories and trivia about all the sights. Pose for pictures in front of the Ponte Vecchio – Florence’s iconic bridge – and cycle around Florence Duomo to admire Brunelleschi’s Dome. Soak up the sights in Piazza della Signoria, the central square that’s always a hub of activity, and admire the ornate marble façade of the Church of Santa Croce.

After your 4-hour electric bike tour, follow your host back to the start point where your tour finishes.

This was one of the top highlights of our family trip to Italy. Our guide, Gabriele, one of the co-owners of the business, was fantastic. He was very engaging and friendly and we saw so many beautiful sites in the hills overlooking Florence. Riding the electric bikes is so much fun particularly in the heat of the summer. I can't recommend this tour enough....book it...it's fantastic!!

Fantastic way to get round a beautiful city and out into the surrounding countryside. Very little effort required despite some very large hills. Would recommend this to anyone wanting to see a bit more of Florence!

A very enjoyable and enlightening bike ride with Alessia, the co-owner of Florence Electric Bike. Alessia was very knowledgeable, with an enchanting personality, that made the whole ride exquisite! We felt very safe as we biked on only a few streets, with most of the riding on back roads or dedicated bike lanes. There was a bit of an ascent up to Fiesole, but the e-bike made it a breeze. Overall, a most delightful experience.

We would recommend this tour to anyone!! It was the perfect way to see a lot of the city in a short amount of time, and the bikes were so much fun to ride. Our guide, Alessia, was dynamic, friendly, patient, and knowledgeable, and the tour was the perfect mix of sightseeing, exercise, wine, and fun.

Our family absolutely LOVED this. A beautiful afternoon riding through the streets of Florence and then along the countryside. From one end of Florence to the other, and to die for pictures!! Thanks Alessia and Gabriele for giving us such a great tour and giving us such a great impression of Florence. We will remember this day forever.

This bike tour was really great -- a highlight of our trip! The smell of the gardens as we rode past, the scenery of the Arno River and Tuscan countryside and feeling like a local as we rode through morning traffic in a part of Florence that few tourists see, made the tour exceptional.

The bikes are really easy to ride. It was such a pleasure to climb the hills so easily. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is comfortable riding a bike in moderate traffic.

The young couple who own and run the company were delightful and well organized. I wish them well! I highly recommend this tour!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended May 2015

Excellent tour. Saw most of the historical sites. Easy ride for this mature couple. Would have been good to have identity vests on each rider so that others would know we were together

This tour was the highlight of our trip to Florence. It was great fun riding the Electric Bikes and the tour itself was amazing! You will visit a olive tree farm and also go to the top of Fllorence to Michelangelo's Piazza and the views are fantastic. Our guide was excellent and so very personable. She told us much about history and also made us feel right at home. The wine and snack at the end of the tour is a great way to wrap up the day. We HIGHLY recommend this tour! You will NOT be disappointed.
