What you'll do

“Best Bike Ride in Tuscany” [Lonely Planet, Florence and Tuscany] The beauty beyond Florence by bike! In the morning or at sunset, in small groups, an easy one-way tour (you don't need e-bike), from the Tuscan contryside to the center of Florence, great for anyone with a general level of fitness and a keen sense of adventure. Very close to the city but away from the crowds, 24 km (15 mi) mostly downhill (some steep downhill with no traffic) and flat roads. After 30 minutes walking around Fiesole, we will move up, deep in the countryside (500m-1600ft a.s.l.). From there by bike through a unique rural landscape, we will go down to the valley. Safely, following the cycle path along the river Arno you will easily get the center of the city (tour arrival point: Florence, Ponte alle Grazie). A unique emotion and an unforgettable synthesis of Tuscany’s treasures. At the beginning of the bike trip, a brief stop at a traditional and authentic farm to taste locally made extra virgin olive oil and wine. As is tradition ever since I was a child, bread with a very good olive oil and a glass of red house wine.
