Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
This is a great activity to maximize your time sightseeing in Florence! The electric bike offers a real advantage, allowing you to see all your favorite Florence attractions without getting tired of pedaling.
What You Can Expect
Pedal behind your host and away from the busy city streets to the nearby hill town of Fiesole, an enchanting Etruscan town that enjoys incredible panoramas of the Tuscan countryside. Ride along the peaceful hill roads and stop at a working farm on the town’s outskirts.
Take a break to soak up the views and browse the farm shop for snacks (own expense), and then start to work your way back down into Florence. Stop for photos at Piazzale Michelangelo, a popular Florence terrace stacked into the hillside, and then visit the Church of San Miniato al Monte – one of the city’s lesser-known gems – to see a medley of art and architecture from different eras.
After cycling along the pretty Florentine streets near the River Arno, head inside a cozy enoteca (wine bar) to try some typical Chianti-region wine and food. Snack on tasty tidbits like fennel salami or bruschetta with red or white wine, and then hop back on your electric bike and pedal into Florence’s historical center.
The downtown streets are scattered with monuments, so your host will stop frequently to share stories and trivia about all the sights. Pose for pictures in front of the Ponte Vecchio – Florence’s iconic bridge – and cycle around Florence Duomo to admire Brunelleschi’s Dome. Soak up the sights in Piazza della Signoria, the central square that’s always a hub of activity, and admire the ornate marble façade of the Church of Santa Croce.
After your 4-hour electric bike tour, follow your host back to the start point where your tour finishes.
Wow,wow,wow! What a great tour, do not see Florence any other way except on this electric bike tour. It was a blast. The half day tour we did with Gabriel and Aleisha as our guides was the best four hours we spent in Florence. They were fantastic guides that kept us safe in all the small amount of traffic that we encountered, most of it was cycle lanes and out in the country. The itinerary that they had covered the best aspects of Florence from frisole and the beautiful olive farm, to riding along the Arno river and the quaint little wine bar for snacks at the end. Definitely much better than taking a tour bus or walking, especially if travelling with teens or kids. Would definitely recommend this tour to anyone of any age as I am a middle age mum with two teenage daughters and we had a brilliant and really fun time. Thank you to Gabriel and Aleisha. You guys are the best.
