Overview

Florence is perfect for biking and this bike tour takes you where the bus tours can’t go, in pedestrian areas and little tiny streets. It will take you less time then any walking tours, showing you roads out of the usual tourist paths, too far to be reached by foot, too tiny for a bus!

You will visit all the major tourist attractions, under the experienced guidance of our entertaining and fun professional history guide.

You will ride through the narrow streets of the main 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.

Along this pleasant stroll in Florence, you will stop at several locations for history explanations and fun facts about the city, and for photo opportunities.

Relax, enjoy the tour and even taste a wonderful Gelato! (included)

Our licensed guides will help you discover the most of the "cradle of the Renaissance" in less time and in the funniest way.. simply perfect as an introduction as well as for veterans. Either way, we're sure you'll agree that biking is the best way to see the "cradle of the Renaissance".

We have all the options for bikers any age as well as families. For younger kids (0-5 yo) we provide child seats. We can accomodate children 6-8 yo on child seats or bike trailers.

The tour will never be cancelled due to rain.  We will do our best to proceed with the bike tour, however, in case of heavy rain, we might decide to stop the bike tour and proceed with a walking tour instead (or just start with a walking tour if the weather does not allow to use the bikes at the time of the meeting point). Should the weather get better during the tour, we will try to get back on board, when possible.
