I Bike Florence

This relaxing and fun bike tour is a great way to discover the cradle of the Renaissance. Departing from the historic centre, you will see all the major sites on board a vintage Italian “graziella” bike and also stop for a wonderful Italian Gelato.

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

In two and a half hours 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!

A licensed guide 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".
