History, art, great food. Combine the three most important ingredients of Florence in a 3-hour leisure bike tour through town with our knowledgeable and passionate professional guide. Explore Florence, learn all the secrets about the main historic and artistic monuments and locations in town, reach locations that would be too far for a walking tour, and savour a few delicious typical products to have an idea of why we consider our culinary traditions to be part of our culture, and as important as masterpieces like Michelangelo’s David. Is it better to gaze in awe at Florence magnificent Duomo with its imposing Brunelleschi’s Cupola (dome), or to bite a mouthwatering Schiacciata All’Olio? Is it sweeter to be surprised by the magic and romantic atmosphere of the Arno River slowly flowing under PonteVecchio bridge, or to have a refreshing sweet Gelato melting in your mouth? Ask no more! Enjoy ALL of this at once while riding a vintage-style bike through the cradle of Renaissance! You will ride through the narrow streets of the main city center and the Oltrarno district, reaching the most amazing monuments of Florence and unknown spots from where to admire the city: Piazza della Repubblica, Piazza Strozzi, the Duomo, Santa Maria Novella, the artisans district, Palazzo Pitti, Pontevecchio, the Uffizi square, Piazza della Signoria, Santa Croce etc. The itinerary is flat and easy, mainly in pedestrian areas, so anyone can bike through Florence and join this tour. An interesting Florence City GuideBook will be our present to give you fresh suggestions (and recipes!) and make your stay in Florence and Tuscany even more memorable.
