Pedal your way through Florence’s esteemed hills, enjoy the city’s finest vistas from high above, and visit a local farm for a delightful tasting experience!
Experience the breathtaking hills of Florence, relish sweeping city panoramas, and indulge in the local flavors on our renowned half-day biking excursion. It’s the perfect fusion of cycling, picturesque landscapes, and culinary delights.
Commencing from our charming Oltrarno headquarters, you’ll embark on a 4.5-hour voyage through the captivating countryside surrounding Florence. Our welcoming team and seasoned guides will provide you with bicycles, helmets, and a brief safety briefing.
The adventure kicks off with a one-hour ride through the historic Porta Romana, the sole remaining entrance encircled by 13th-century city walls. As you ascend into a charming residential neighborhood, Florence gracefully recedes, yielding to the Tuscan countryside.
Meandering through ancient byways, we’ll make pit stops for photos and insights into the local flora and fauna. Upon reaching a picturesque farm nestled in the hills, your guide will lead you through the olive groves and, if timing permits, an Italian-style garden.
Here, you’ll savor a glass of local Chianti wine and extra virgin olive oil produced on-site, perfectly complemented by Tuscan cold cuts and fresh bread. Rejuvenated and invigorated, we’ll continue our voyage through an ancient Tuscan village, where Galileo Galilei once resided and contemplated the stars.
Drawing closer to Florence, we’ll pause at Piazzale Michelangelo, offering an iconic cityscape view and a prime opportunity for a memorable selfie. The final stretch of our journey takes us downhill into the heart of Florence. If time permits, your guide may introduce you to their preferred local gelato spot!
