What You Can Expect
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.
This is a wonderful way to easily see beautiful landscape views of Florence and the surrounding country side. This tour is for you if you want to see the amazing scenery of Florence. If you want a tour that provides a lot of historical detail about the city, this is not the tour for you. While our guide did give us some information about the sites we passed or stopped at, the nature of the tour does not allow for the guides to go into great detail. Also this tour is not for you if you don't have a lot of experience riding a bike. Some parts of the tour are on busy roads with other vehicles so you want to be comfortable with your bike.
Also, the farm we visited was an olive farm. It would have been nice to be able to taste some of the olive oil as part of the tour, but we didn't get to.
Overall, the tour was really nice and made biking up those tall hills very easy with the motorized bikes. Gabriel was a great tour guide and gave good recommendations for places to eat.
The highlight of our trip to Italy!! So much fun!
It was a drizzly day and while waiting to meet our guide we were secretly hoping it would get canceled. But when Alessi got us out on the bikes, it was love at first pedal, as it made going up the hills of Florence a breeze . She was so nice and gave us tons of information along the way. This truly became one of our favorite activities while in Italy. We would not hesitate to do this again or suggest it to others. Electric bike was nicer than a Vespa tour in that it was slow enough to enjoy the sights and quiet so we could hear our host, yet effortless pedaling. LOVE LOVE LOVE! Thanks again Alessi!
This was one of the best tours I have ever done. Totally enjoyed our morning. The bikes are in great condition and so easy and fun to operate. Alessi was so helpful, sharing info about Florence and the places we visited. We have visited Florence before but we saw so much more and learnt so much more taking the bikes. This would be a great tour to do first day into Florence.
Amazing. Went with our 4 kids and we all loved it.
Great tour, really enjoyed biking outside Florence to the Farm. The electric bikes were especially fun!
A must do, this tour was the highlight of our honeymoon trip to Italy! Alyssia was a terrific guide - knowledgeable, friendly, and willing to share her knowledge of her hometown. The electric bikes made cruising the streets and hills of Florence a breeze. Seeing the historic town, historical highlights, and Tuscan countryside roads was so much fun, lots of good opportunities for pictures and videos. We could have used a bit more time at the Farm we visited, but other than that a perfect tour. Alyssia's recommendation of the local trattatoria across the street from her shop for lunch was terrific as well, one of our favorite meals in Florence!
I wish I could rate this tour and our tour guide Alicia spelling? a 6 5 is not high enough!! She was so kind and informative and made sure we understood the easy electric bikes thoroughly before we left. These bikes made the ride through the Tuscan hills so easy! Anyone can do this trip and should. Seeing the hills, mansions, and hilltop farms made us understand why so many people love Tuscany. We enjoyed seeing the city from the Michelangelo plaza and the Wine Bar was wonderful!! Alicia keeps the tour small to give personalized attention and we really appreciated that - it was like a private tour! We would do this tour again in a heartbeat! Thanks for a wonderful time.
This was an excellent tour and opportunity to see the lovely Tuscan countryside when in Florence. We booked this on our first day in Florence, and it afforded us a great opportunity to orient ourselves to the city and escape the oppressive crowds of tourists in the downtown core. We met in front of a coffee shop near the Piazza della Signoria and Alyssia led us the block or two to their bike office. It took only a couple of minutes to get the hang of them in their quiet street as we had never tried them before. Although it was a scorching hot day, the e-bikes allowed us to sail in the breeze and up into the hills of Fiesole with minimal effort. You wont believe how easily you ascend relatively steep terrain! In addition to visiting the organic olive oil farm Fiesole which, unluckily for us was closed, due to it being a Sunday, we whipped over to the opposite heights and views from Piazzale Michelangelo, as well as the monastery: San Miniato al Monte. There we heard the hauntingly beautiful Gregorian chant tones emanating from the church which had begun evening vespers. There is a little shop there which sells goods made by the monks. We were able to take some astounding pictures throughout due to our birds eye views. We had ample opportunities to take breaks, drinks, and pictures. To cap it off, we were given wine and snacks at the foot of Ponte Vecchio. Alyssia was a lovely, friendly tour guide and we really appreciated the way she shared information about her life in Italy. We wish her and her partner much success in their business.
What a wonderful way to get out of the city center and see Florence from the surrounding hills! Fantastic experience that our family loved. A highlight of our vacation!
