Spend an exciting day in Florence’s historical district of San Frediano, on the left bank of the Arno River, heading to the beautiful surrounding hills through the Porta Romana, joining us on this unforgettable Florentine experience!

The starting point will be as close as possible to your accommodation. We will take a smooth ride through the flat green park along the river banks. A quiet, refreshing time before plunging straight into historic Florence, where native Florentines still live and work. You will enjoy cycling through hidden places that not many people know about. After a steady climb in the shade, your reward will be the most famous and beautiful view of Florence from the Piazzale Michelangelo. Pedaling along downhill tree-lined boulevards you will see typical Florentine villas and castles, rows of cypresses and olive groves with breathtaking views overlooking Florence and its monuments. Now you can stop for a well-earned lunch in a local restaurant before continuing your visit downtown. The Ponte Vecchio, Palazzo Pitti and some artisans’ handicraft shops are the highlights of the afternoon before we take you back to your accommodation.

We will make frequent stops that will leave an indelible mark of the experience in your memory: a break for coffee, a gelato, or just resting on a Florentine stone bench to take in the surroundings.

We all love Florence as the Cradle of Reinassance.

However, not everyone knows that beyond the old city centre – hidden within its massive, ancient original walls – lies a host of craftsmen (and women): jewelers, shoemakers, workers in silk and brocade, perfumers, and ice cream makers.

Highlights of this tour: Cascine Park, San Frediano, Piazzale Michelangelo, San Miniato, Pitti Palace, Old Bridge.
In other words, the essence of Florence!

Biking experience in Florence

If you are remotely fit and want a unique experience biking around the unconventional Florence (or an escape day from crowds), then I strongly recommend the Bike in Florence&Tuscany city tour…

Great way to see parts of Floreonce and Tuscany that you would never see otherwise!

We went on 2 trips with Piero (second with his wife Elena).
1. Day trip of Florence. Saw Florence in whole new light- allowed us to explore Florence from 1 end to the other, avoiding the usual “tourist” areas (Duomo, Palazzo Signoria, Ponte Vecchio) that we had already done on foot. Only the 3 of us, yet Piero still did tour, incredibly infromative, adapted tour to our needs (stopped when we felt need), great lunch at hidden restaurant below Piazzale Michelangelo. Had a geat time!
2. Tuscany wine tour. This time did with son as well (initally not very enthusiastic, but even he admitted worth every penny). I am a regular cyclist, but others in group (total 6) “weekend warriors”. Tuscany can be challenging cycling, but Piero selcted route that everyone in group could do (picked us up at local drop off, since we were stayig in San Gimignano), drove to start of route, mostly downhill thereafter- abslolutely incredible countryside. Wine tasting incredible, espcially at Monteriggioni where we had wine tasting with matched food for lunch- informative. Shown how diferent local wines complement diferent foods. My wife (not usually a wine lover) “never going to drink cheap wine again”. Again Piero + Elena adapted tour to our needs. Again had great time- worth every Euro! Only downside- being from Canada, not practical to ship a case home!
