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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
