Top Florence Outdoor Activities

While its indoor attractions get a lot of attention, Florence is full of beauty outside of its museum walls. Here are a few ways to make the most of Florence’s outdoor sights, from its cobbled alleys to the Arno River and vine-covered hills.

Walking Tours
The Tuscan city of Florence is awash in stories, and you can hear those tales while hitting the streets on a walking tour around town. Visit the teeming Piazza della Signoria and cross the Ponte Vecchio before craning your neck to take in the beauty of the city’s famous Duomo. Florence walking tours typically last between two and three hours, and if you really want to work up a sweat while learning Renaissance history, join in a Florence running tour for a jog around town.

Biking Tours
If you’d like to balance sampling Tuscan cuisine with staying active, consider a Florence biking and food tour where you move between sampling stops on two wheels. For a longer ride out into the countryside, opt for a full-day tour that takes you out to ride past vineyards and Tuscan towns. To feel the thrill of moving on two wheels with less effort, join an electric bicycle tour that visits a local farm.

Wine Tasting
Wine tasting is one of the best ways to explore the Tuscan outdoors at a relaxed pace. Wander through vineyards while sipping Chianti and enjoying panoramic views of hill towns that rise up from plains filled with grasslands and grapes. Some tours involve off-road driving so you can travel into the heart of authentic Tuscan countryside.
