Tuscany E-Bike Tour: From Florence to Chianti with lunch

The most entertaining and complete way to experience the very best Tuscany has to offer: an easy guided E-Bike tour of Florence and Tucan countryside, including a (stress-free!) hill journey up to the marvelous Piazzale Michelangelo, the city’s most amazing viewpoint. Meet your dedicated guide and fellow travelers, board your snappy E-Bike and set off with a smile, for an unforgettable tour.

Pedal effortlessly across the flowing Arno river led by your guide, and “climb” the sumptuously tree-lined Viale dei Colli to reach a dazzling viewpoint: Piazzale Michelangelo, a terrace offering spectacular views of Florence’s towers, palaces, red rooftops and lovely bridges. Take some minutes for a great photo opportunity before start for your next stop: the Chianti shire.

A once-in-a-lifetime experience that will let you enjoy a semi private exclusive tour in the most nature-oriented way: riding a bike through the gentle hills of Chianti wine region.

We will lead you along scenic country roads hemmed in ancient olive groves and vineyards and among the world known "Anello del Rinascimento" itinerary.

Tuscan hilltops and hillside villa estates are all part of the breath-taking panoramic views you will see as you ride your bike through the heart of Tuscany.

Half-way, a break will give you the opportunity to visit a typical Terracotta factory and learn how the skilled artisans still create works of art, traditional materials used in the construction of residential buildings and villas, as well as interior design and garden accessories such as dividers, vessels, jars, gardener, bins and plantersof an olive oil mill in an ancient noble estate, where you will enjoy a guided tour of their spaces in a unique mix of ancient and modern setting, learning about the processes involved in producing olive oil. A taste of their gourmet olive oil will reveal all the incredible flavours that their passion and work generate.

After the olive oil experience you will discover a fascinating small boutique winery and its wines, where you will enjoy a typical Tuscan meal and relax until you reach your e-bike again to pedal on the way back to Florence.
