Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
This is a great activity to maximize your time sightseeing in Florence! The electric bike offers a real advantage, allowing you to see all your favorite Florence attractions without getting tired of pedaling.
What You Can Expect
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.
If you can choose to do one thing in Florence .. this is it!! Thee best way to see Florence with no effort!! The electric bikes allow you to go straight up hills without ever getting out of breath :) It's incredible to see the sights of Florence and surrounding Tuscany in this unique way. Our tour guide was the sweetest and nicest person. She showed us so many beautiful sights all at our own pace and of course with the ease of the electric bike doing the work for you. She brought water along for us. And then we stopped at an Olive Farm where we sampled delicious home grown olive oil with fresh bread ~ yum. All while viewing a beautiful Tuscany view. We also stopped in town for another snack and some delicious wine. Over all.... our favorite tour and a "must" if you are visiting Florence !!! Highly recommend this tour :)
This was a great tour. I felt like we really got to see florance. Our tour guides were so nice and friendly. We chose this tour because we could bring our 8 year old son and he had a great time.
