Best of Florence – Half-Day Tour

Quick Details

See All of Florence and Its Unforgettable Panoramic Views

Join us for a Tuscany bike tour with a fun itinerary, giving you the chance to see all of Florence from within and from outside of the city, with unforgettable panoramic spots. This We Like Tuscany tour is led by an expert and knowledgeable guide. The first part of the tour takes place in the Oltrarno neighborhood, where we discover old shops and workshops, and narrow streets with typical trattorias and bars.

Coming into Santo Spirito Piazza, we spend our first stop finding out about the history of the church, the last realization of the Florentine Renaissance genius Filippo Brunelleschi, that counts among its masterpieces a wooden crucifix by a young Michelangelo.

 

  • Chevron down Discover Piazza Pitti and the Beautiful Views from Lungarno
  • We set off again, and in just a few minutes the imposing Piazza Pitti opens up before our eyes! The majestic palace, once home to the Dukes of Tuscany, hosts no less than seven Florentine State museums, among them the Boboli Gardens and the Palatine Gallery, where masterpieces by Raffaello, Caravaggio, Tiziano, Rubens, and Van Dyck are hosted.

    Back on our bikes and off riding among the beautiful views from Lungarno (the river banks) and the historical palaces, we get to the ancient Florentine walls, ready for our third stop: the Roses garden, a charming garden with a romantic view over the city.

  • Chevron down Visit Le Murate, the Duomo and Piazza della Signoria
  • After snapping a few shots among the poetic works by Folon, we leave the garden to get back to our bike ride. Heading east at first and then north, we’ll reach an ancient structure called Le Murate, formerly a prison that is today a lively Florentine cultural and literary center.

    After a short stop, we are ready to take on the old city center, where we see the Duomo (cathedral) with its majestic dome. Your expert guide will fascinate you with stories and curious anecdotes of Florence. After the religious center, we head towards the political one; Piazza della Signoria, the Florentine open-air social and cultural gathering.

    After this last stop, with our minds full of nice pictures, we are ready to get back, still discovering on the way more hidden corners, unknown to those who walk but revealing themselves to the bikers while Florence greets them, plunged in the warm colors of the sunset.
