By Viator, April 2014
Join a cycling tour and you’ll cover more ground than you possibly could on foot, meet new people, and keep fit while sightseeing from a different perspective.
Cycling tours travel at a relaxed pace, are led by knowledgeable local guides, and include plenty of stops along the way. All the essentials are provided, including bike hire and helmet. Here are just a few suggestions to send you on your way.
With its smooth rings of canals, the Dutch capital and surrounding countryside are tailor-made for easy cycling. Amsterdam’s bike tours put the focus on the city’s centuries of history, highlighting major sights such as the Royal Palace, while also introducing local gems.
Night-time bike tours are a special feature in Paris, which puts on a nightly illuminated show. There’s nothing like watching the floodlights go on while you ride between famous landmarks like the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum and Arc de Triomphe.
Barcelona and Madrid are ideal destinations for cycling tours, and sightseeing by bike is a great way to cover a lot of ground in these two sprawling cities.In Barcelona, fuel up on tapas at a beach bar at the end of your tour, having cycled through the Old Town past Gaudi’s La Sagrada Familia church.
Tuscany is a firm favorite with cyclists, with its Chianti vineyards and quiet country lanes. In Florence, bike tours take you to all the major highlights, including the Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi Gallery and main piazza, with time to stop for gelati en route.
Other European cities with a perfect view from a bicycle include: Berlin and Munich, the Austrian capital Vienna, Stockholm, Budapest and Prague.
