Bike through Florence’s prestigious hills and visit a Renaissance Villa
This is our most popular tour which has made us famous among the visitors coming to Florence. It’s the perfect balance between cycling, admiring beautiful countryside landscapes, and tasting the gastronomic specialties of the area.
This Tour allows you to enjoy the magical side of Florence and Tuscany, which most visitors don’t get to see: ancient countryside roads, great hilltop views, beautiful Villas, olive groves, and rolling vineyards. All in half-day!
Starting from our office in the less touristy Oltrarno neighborhood, you will see the swift contrast between the cityscape and the countryside in a scenic 4.5-hour bike ride from Florence.
All of our tours are accompanied by at least one of our professional and knowledgeable guides.
Tucked away in the hills behind Florence, we will make our way to a Renaissance Villa. There we will enjoy a tasting of wine and extra virgin olive oil paired with a nice platter of Tuscan cold cuts.
After having relaxed, we will jump back on the bikes to burn off some calories and enjoy some more Tuscan scenery. We will pass through a small village on our way back to Florence, home to Galileo and his star observatory!
This is a small group Tour and a great way to get away from churches, museums, and the annoying crowds of the city!
Welcome to the heart of Tuscany!
