Taste of Tuscany and Bike Tour of Florence, cycling through the prestigious hills of Florence and visit a Renaissance villa.

This tour allows you to enjoy the magical side of Florence and Tuscany, which most visitors cannot see: ancient country roads, beautiful views of the hills, beautiful villas, olive groves and vineyards. All in half a day!

Starting from our office in the less touristy Oltrarno district, you will see the difference between the city and the countryside in a 4.5 hour panoramic bike tour from Florence.

All our tours are accompanied by one of our professional and competent guides.

Hidden in the hills behind Florence, we head to a private Renaissance villa and a family-run winery. There we will enjoy a tasting of their wines and extra virgin olive oil paired with a nice plate of Tuscan cold cuts.

After relaxing, we will hop back on our bikes to burn some calories and enjoy some more Tuscan landscapes. We will cross a small village on the way back to Florence, home of Galileo and his astronomical observatory!

This is a small group tour, and a great way to get away from the churches, museums and annoying crowds in the city.

Welcome to the heart of Tuscany!

We start at 9.15am from our Florence office, in the Oltrarno area of Florence.

You will be greeted by our friendly staff and your guide, then fitted with bikes and helmets. You will then have a brief training session for safety and introduction to the itinerary.

The first part of the bike ride lasts about one hour, and you will pass through the ancient gate of Porta Romana. This is the only entrance to Florence that is still surrounded by the 13th-century city walls!

Our first uphill of the day (700m) is in a beautiful residential area of the town. Once at the top, you will see that Florence is already far away and we are getting close to the Tuscan countryside.

After reaching the countryside by riding through narrow and ancient roads, we’ll have plenty of photo stops and learn about local flora and fauna.

Having reached the Villa, we park our bikes in the olive grove and Villa, where the guide will give a brief introduction to olive oil and wine making.

Being a small family production, everything is organic and sustainable, down to the owner’s own herb garden.

Then we will duck into the 1,000 year old wine cellar for a wine and olive oil tasting accompanied by a light Tuscan snack of local products. All products are produced on the premises, and being such a small family production, they are only sold locally.

Both the wine and olive oil are available for purchase and shipping.

After this break, we are ready to burn some calories!

Our return leg back to Florence takes us through an ancient Tuscan Village where Galileo Galilei used to live and also see his star observatory!

Closer to Florence, we will stop at the famous Piazzale Michelangelo for one of the best views of Florence and a selfie opportunity.

The last part of the ride is all downhill back into the historical center of Florence.

If all goes well and we are on time your guide may even stop at their favorite local gelato spot!
