Full description

The meeting point inside the historical city walls of Florence is in the authentic and quiet neighborhood of Oltrarno. From here, ride outside Florence through a prestigious residential area to reach the pristine Tuscany rolling hills.  The bike tour starts with a 2 km uphill ride, frequent stops will be made to enjoy the views on the way up to the top of the hill. Once you arrive at the top, you will be riding your bikes through the neighborhood of the local Florentine nobility and their villas, making your way to a famous Renaissance villa tucked away in the hills beyond Florence.   Stop and tour their Italian-style gardens before continuing on to your wine and olive oil tasting. Pair your wine with a light Tuscan snack comprised of local products. All products are produced on the premise and being such a small family production, everything is organic and sustainable. Your return leg back to Florence will take you by the spectacular Piazzale Michelangelo, one of the best views of Florence where you can stretch your legs and capture some pictures. Continue downhill from there and back into Florence, finishing in the San Niccolo area.

This tour was a highlight of our trip. Bill and Julio were fantastic guides. Expect a light workout, breathtaking views, delicious wine and food, knowledgeable guides, and an unforgettable time. I was tentative to bike the hills and both guides talked me through everything. made me feel safe, and encouraged. We had a blast! Take this tour!
