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.
What a way to see Firenze! Flying through the crowded streets on our way up to the hills was so fun... Gabriella was a great guide with lots of knowledge! The view from Fiesole was amazing and we covered around 18 miles without even breaking sweat! Would definitely book again... Grazie :
Fun, fun, fun...ok, my derrière hurt, but that's because I have t been on a bike for awhile. I would def recommend this for anyone up for an adventure.
This was the highlight of our trip! Thank you so much to Gabriele, our tour guide, who made this such a memorable experience for my daughter and I. Gabriele's instructions were so clear and his passion and knowledge of the area was great! The cycle up to Friesole was spectacular as we cycled out of the city, passed through the residential areas and then finally ended up at the city farm with absolutely stunning views! The cycle back was fantastic too, and the view of Firenze from Michaelangelo Square was superb! We cannot thank Gabriele and Alessia enough for making this such a great experience! Debbie and Mhairi

We had a fantastic day with Gabriel touring around Florence. We particularly loved riding up in the hills. Bikes are super easy to operate and Gabriel is a delightful guide.
What a fantastic experience! Gabriel is a terrific guide --- from start to finish, my daughter and I enjoyed the opportunity to ride through Florence, visiting areas outside what the normal tourist experience would be. Thank you, Gabriel! Well done!
We like to go on bike tours in all the cities we visit, and this one was just as remarkable. Gabrielle was very knowledgable of the cities history and culture. He took us through the old city as well as the new to the olive farm. I was hesitant about the electric bike, but was really comfortable by the time we needed to get up a steep hill. I would highly recommend this tour as riding through the streets of an ancient city is a very memorable experience.
My husband and I booked this tour during our honeymoon in Italy, and I'm willing to say this was the highlight of our trip! The bikes were so easy to ride, and they're perfect for sightseeing. We saw parts of Florence that we never would've seen on our own, including an olive farm! There are no words to describe the gorgeous landscape when you get out of the busy city... Our guide also brought us to the best Panini shop we visited while in Florence, which was a great lunch after hours of riding! We have zero complaints, only advice to definitely take this tour, you won't regret it!
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!
