What you'll do

Fiesole is the sky above Florence, countryside and nature just outside the city, ideal starting point to really discover the hills of Florence.
Max 4 participants, private or semi-private tour!
This awesome & non-touristy experience was perfected during 10 years of activity by FiesoleBike, a local company that offers bike & hike tours only in the Florence and Fiesole area.
Because we’ll be traveling by e-bike, the trip is perfect both for those who do not like climbs and want to see the Tuscan hills without difficulty, and for those who want to do some exercise.
It will be at least 30 km (18 mi) long, distance and route may vary according to the participants' skills: we know every corner of our land.
In complete safety we will assist you and make your trip unforgettable.
In the morning or in the afternoon, at sunrise or at sunset, sometimes at night, so close yet so far from the city, we will discover the marvelous Tuscan countryside that immediately "out of town" surrounds Florence.
An adventure that will start from from the Monastery of San Francesco which dominates Florence with a magnificent panoramic view of the city, and then immerse yourself entirely in the countryside, through places that only a native from the area can take you to. Not just a tour, but emotions, places and people. And if you are not satisfied, and you will explain why, we will refund you!

Where you'll be

Fiesole is a country town just outside of Florence, at 6km (3.7mi) distance! The connection between Fiesole and the center of Florence is very convenient, even by public bus. 7 days a week the bus, price €1.50, leaves every 20 min and reaches the other location in 25 min (last ride from Fiesole to Florence is at 1 am). The terminal bus in Florence is next the Santa Maria Novella Train Station, 650m/2100ft distance from the Duomo.

It was one of the best experiences on our honeymoon to Italy. Giovanni was very kind, attentive, and accommodating throughout the trip. The prosciutto, cheese, olive oil, and wine tasting at the end were also incredible! We highly recommend this!

We had the honor of spending a few hours with Giovanni ebiking around Tuscany. What an AMAZING experience. Giovanni is incredibly thoughtful and kind. He put a lot of thought into making this a great experience. He is patient and never made me feel bad for holding up the group when I was figuring out how to make it over some of the hills. He just walked me through it, explained how to do it correctly and eventually I got it. Thanks Giovanni! The views are amazing, the bikes are in great shape… and the sites… just wow! A highlight of our trip to Florence! My husband and kids (13 and 14) called it the best day! (And that is saying a lot - we had an awesome vacation). You can take a bus to the location but we chose, due to Covid, to take a cab. It worked out perfectly! I highly recommend this experience!

My 1st time on this type of bike and I wasn’t very comfortable the first 5min. The rest was total bliss. I’m traveling solo for 3mo in Italy and this is a top three highlight of my days here. Giovanni is so nice, accommodating and patient. I’ve been visiting Florence for 30yrs and I’ve never really seen it until today. ♥️

We had a lovely sunny day biking in the Florentine hills on e bikes with Giovanni as our guide. It was our first time on e bikes and we loved the experience! It was easy getting to the start point in Fiesole using the local bus and Giovanni’s great directions. Giovanni takes great pride in the condition of his equipment and the safety of his guests. He loves his home town and his passion shines through. We would highly recommend this tour.

Great bike ride! I am not a big rider (at all…..) but still enjoyed it. Ebikes we’re good, felt safe, hosts very friendly and knowledgeable. My butt will be sore, but we’ll worth it

Fantastic! A must do for anyone that wants to explore the hills around Florence. Giovanni hosted a wonderful 4 hour bike ride, finishing up by bringing us to a local farm for the most amazing olive oil, bread and prosciutto. And some lovely wine of course ! 100% recommend - The views are unmissable!
