Cruise comfortably and effortlessly by electric bicycle, admiring the glorious juxtaposition of the rural Tuscan landscape with Florence's urban vibrancy. Cross the region's gorgeous hillside eventually arriving in the picturesque town of Fiesole for an insight into the relaxed, country lifestyle. Continue along peaceful archaic roads to a charming organic farm. Admire the harmonious scenery, Renaissance-era cloister, and even sample some of the produce (not included). Visit the Piazzale Michelangelo, enjoying an unforgettable view overlooking all of Florence. See the magnificent Romanesque basilica of San Miniato al Monte. Proceed to the city's historic center, meandering through the concentration of historic treasures, including the Ponte Vecchio, Pitti Palace, Piazza della Signoria, Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore, Giotto’s Campanile, the Florence Baptistery, the Basilica di Santa Croce, and many more.

    This experience was superb. We were lucky because our trip was private without any other tourist (summer daytime). Nevertheless Gabriel our tour guide and owner of the company was fantastic, he is so friendly, open-minded, high-skilled and funny person. The 4-hour flexible tour passed quickly, you can went through the steep hills easily with the professional and powerful electric bikes, not tiring at all. Going around Florence and surroundings is a perfect way to getting touch with the real Toscany feeling of life. At the end of the trip Gabriel introduced us to his part of family, his newborn baby (so cute!). We felt ourselves as the part of Gabriel's family. And the ice cream was as delicious as promised :) When you visit Florence this trip is a must have program. Don't hesitate, book now :)

    My husband Seth and I absolutely loved our bike tour through Florence and the hills. Gabriel, our guide was excellent and so knowledgeable, friendly, and really made the tour extra special. This by far was the highlight of our time spent in Florence! I highly recommend this tour for anyone visiting Florence.

    Helmets at the ready! This journey is pretty fast. You go through busy roads and cycle paths up to the glorious Tuscan countryside. I had never ridden an electric bike and it took a little time to feel really confident on it. This ride isn’t for the faint hearted, especially in over 33 degree heat. You need good road sense and determination. It was harder than I imagined, but I was so proud I did it. My 17 year old son loved it. He thought it was a breeze!!! Frederico our guide was great. It’s an afternoon in Florence I’ll not forget.
