Overview

Get a true taste of Florence on a 3-hour food tour by bike. Led by a local guide, you’ll pedal past top attractions like the Duomo and the Ponte Vecchio, while making stops at three local hotspots for food. Savor bites of schiacciata all’olio, a salty flat bread sprinkled with olive oil, and treat your sweet tooth to Italian pastries as you learn about Tuscan cuisine and history. This small-group tour is limited to 10 travelers to keep the experience as intimate as possible.
  • 3-hour small-group Florence food tour by bike
  • Visit favorite local eateries such as a pastry shop in the Beccaria neighborhood
  • Enjoy food on three stops and sample Tuscan specialties including schiacciata all’olio
  • Learn all about Tuscan cuisine and popular dishes from an expert local guide
  • Cycle past top Florence attractions such as the Ponte Vecchio and Uffizi Gallery
  • Small-group tour with a maximum of 10 ensures personalized attention
Your tour will begin near Piazza della Signoria, where you’ll join up with your guide. After a brief safety overview, snap on your helmet and hit the streets, stopping at three local spots to sample authentic Tuscan cuisine. The eateries typically include a deli in San Niccolo’ to try the savory schiacciata all’olio bread and a pastry shop in the Beccaria area to sample Italian sweets. Drinks are available for purchase.

As you travel to each local haunt, your guide will pause to share tales and trivia about Florentine cuisine and its iconic landmarks. Cycle past the Duomo's distinctive red dome designed by Brunelleschi, and pose for photos along the Ponte Vecchio, the historic bridge that spans that River Arno and has today become a hub for jewelry shops. You’ll also pass the Uffizi Gallery, home to masterpieces from Michelangelo and Botticelli, and admire the church of Santa Croce, where Machiavelli and Galileo are buried.

After three hours of tasting and sightseeing, you tour will conclude at its original departure point.

Was pretty crowded in many places to ride bikes. No instructions on the bike gears. Guide was knowledgeable.

It was fun! Francesca was so sweet and took us around. The only reason I took down a star was because the food options we had could have been better. We had some rice pudding, coccolo kind of like cornbread, and gelato from Perche No? Rice pudding was pretty good, Coccolo was alright, but we've been introduced to legit gelato shops where it's covered in a tin can, and the gelato shop we were taken to wasn't covered. Oh well, it was still tasty!

This tour was so much fun it's the first thing we're booking for this year. The riding was a nice way to get around the city, the food stops were both informative and tasty, and it was just right to give us a quick overview of the city during our half-day layover.

This was the second bike tour of Italy that we did in one week.
And although the tour was ok, there were many routes that we took that were not in the heart of Florence but on the out skirts near tons of traffic and busy streets. The lure of these trips is to bike through the little streets of the towns and see the people, did not get that same feeling with this trip.
