Florence Electric Bike Tour with Farm and Wine Bar Visit

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

Your tour will begin in central Florence, where you’ll meet your guide and hop on your electric bike, with a motor that starts when you pedal. After a brief safety overview, head through the city streets to the Etruscan town of Fiesole. As you ride along the scenic country roads, stop to admire stunning views of Tuscany down below.

Then, work your way back down into Florence, stopping at Piazzale Michelangelo for panoramic views of the city. Take a peek inside one of Florence’s hidden gems, the Church of San Miniato al Monte, a stunning Romanesque structure with an adjoining 15th-century monastery.

Continue into the center of the city, stopping at a local wine bar. Sip a glass of red vino from Chianti while nibbling on some Tuscan treats, like bruschetta or salami. Then hop back on your electric bike to spot some of Florence’s most iconic landmarks.

Pass the historic Ponte Vecchio and see Brunelleschi’s Dome up close as you circle the Florence Duomo. Check out the burial spot of famous Italians like Galileo and Machiavelli at the Church of Santa Croce, and immerse yourself in the bustle of Piazza della Signoria. Your guide will provide commentary as you go, lending a rich context to the sites around you.

Your 4-hour adventure will conclude at your original departure point.

Had a great time with Gabriel's guided tour! My sister and I were the only ones on the tour, and absolutely loved seeing the areas outside the city of Florence! The olive oil farm was amazing, and we learned a lot about the process the farmers use to make the oil. The biking is a bit more strenuous than expected, so I would only suggest this for those capable of light to medium level activity for 3-4 hours straight. Topped off with a snack and glass of wine and it was the perfect morning/early afternoon! Thank you Gabriel for the great tour!

This was a real experience! It was lovely to get out of the city and into the country and Gabriele was the best guide imaginable. He mixed history with current information in a delightful way. The electric bicycles take a little getting used to, but they certainly take the work out of pedalling up hills. All in all, a wonderful way to spend a morning!

This was the absolute HIGHLIGHT of our trip to Florence! We spent four hours with Gabriele and felt like we saw things we'd never have known existed if not of this fabulous tour. I you are thinking about this, I can tell you without hesitation that its 110 worth the time and money!

This was my husbands first bike tour and it was the best. The electric bikes made travel very easy even on the hills. Our guide was very nice and informative. We took the afternoon tour which made the last stop of wine and cheese a great ending to the trip. I would highly recommend this to anyone who can ride a bike.

Gabrielle was fantastic. We only had a short time in Florence, and wanted to see as much as we could. He was knowledgeable, and very engaging. The bikes were very easy to use as well. The wine bar at the end was a fantastic touch. By far one of my favorite days on trip.

This was our second E-bike vacation tour and it was exceptional. Our guide a young Florence native was very knowledgeable and gave us superb views of Florence.My wife and I are both in our 60's and the bikes were so easy to maneuver. We are so glad we had this experience and would suggest if your looking for something a little different to do give it a try.

The best of all of our tours during our 12 days in Italy, this is not to be missed! Gabriele was fantastic. He adjusted each of the bikes, and showed us how to use them. The electric bikes take a bit a getting used to, but are amazing and take all the work out of going up hills. We started at the bike shop in old-town Florence and made our way up to an olive farm in the hills near Friesole called Fattoria di Maiano. Gabriele was careful to take routes away from cars where possible and keep tabs on us. He also explained interesting sites and landmarks along the way. Don't try to be macho, wear a helmet, trust me! From there, we biked over to Piazza Michelangelo for some incredible views of Florence, and a bit further up to the Benedictine Monastery of San Miniato al Monte, where we took in the amazing church and heard the Gregorian chants for Vespers. The monks opened the shop afterwards and we bought some snacks. Gabriele was funny and entertaining, but creative and persistent with inevitable equipment issues, and took us to a local wine bar afterwards.

Gabrielle could not have been a better or more concerned guide. The trip was great, a nice deviation from a traditional walking tour.
