What you'll do

8 people max!

First, we'll take some minutes to take confidence with the engine of the e-bikes; you don't need to be particularly fit even if we'll cover hilly roads; the engine makes the effort for you.

In a couple of minutes, we'll leave the city center to reach the countryside towards the south area of Florence. Through a nice bike path, we'll get to the most popular panoramic view over the city of Florence: Piazzale Michelangelo. From there, we can admire from the distance all the architectures of the city.
After some photographic shoots, we'll visit Abbazia San Miniato al Monte, slightly higer, founded in 1018.

With the use of the electric engine, in no time we'll be in the area of Arcetri, where the scenaro is totally different: no tourists,olives groves, small vineyards, typical Tuscan countryside. I'll tell you something about our local products such as the Extra Virgin Olive Oil and the wine. Electric bikes, nature, green colors, red poppies and birds cheeping are the context of this ride.

After the ride, we'll get back to the city center to taste a wonderful gelato in one of the best spots in town!

If you want to make it private, longer or shorter, if you have kids, if a date is not available just contact me!

Hi everyone and welcome in my Airbnb activity! I'm Alessia, 28 years old, born and raised in Florence!
A bike is the best way to explore actively the city so I decided to turn my passion into a job!
With our company Florentbike, my husband and I created in 2013 the first e-bike tour in Italy, being official tour guide and escort. The team of co-hosts that you may meet when we are not available is selected by us: they are all nice, passioned and official guides

I have two experiences, both focusing on places that
the majority of tourists normally couldn't reach easily alone.

Would you like to see more of the countryside and have the exclusive access into a farm with animals and olive groves? Here is my 4 hours experience: https://www.airbnb.it/experiences/402134

Where you'll be

I have invented this tour to show everybody how beautiful is the city where I live. I mix part of the city as Michelangelo Square with the beautiful countryside of Arcetri, passing by small and narrow streets without traffic: for this reason the tour can be adapted to everyone.

Absolutely loved it !!! Definitely a must do when in Florence! Gabriele & Alessia are really really nice and kind and the bike tour was amazing (pretty views, getting away from touristic areas but instead seeing the beautiful Tuscany landscape). Will definitely book an e-bike tour with them again next time I’m in Florence!

What a great tour! I got a private tour with Gabriele. He was very entertaining and funny and knew a lot to tell about Florence and the surrounding area. Riding the e-bike was very easy and I immediately felt comfortable and safe with it. The countryside south of Florence was simply breathtaking and exploring it this way was a great experience. I can highly recommend the tour. Just do it! Thank you Gabriele and Alessia! 🙂

I went into the tour without any expectations but I was amazed by the knowledge Riccardo had about the history of the city! I also really enjoyed all the places he showed and the views are truly amazing!

I had a great time riding e-bikes and whizzing around the hills. I wish I could have ridden for longer and hope to do it again soon :)

We hadden een persoonlijke tour dus we hadden alle vrijheid in wat we wilde zien. Het uitzicht over Florence was prachtig, en ook de omgeving rondom Florence. Gabrielle was erg aardig en we kregen een heerlijk en echt Italiaans ijs na afloop. Top ervaring!
