Discover olive groves, vineyards, medieval castles, hillside villa estates and breathtaking panoramic views of Florence, as we ride through the heart of Tuscany.
Florence’s Hill and a Renaissance Villa
The meeting point for our Tuscany bike tours is located at the doorway to the Chianti countryside, thus avoiding a ride through the throngs of tourists in the center of Florence. The ride starts out with a two-kilometer uphill ride, and we make frequent stops to enjoy the views on the way up to the top of the hill.
Once we arrive at the top, we ride our bikes through the neighborhood of the local Florentine nobility and their villas, making our way to a famous Renaissance villa tucked away in the hills behind Florence.
- The Ancient Wine Cellar and Olive Oil Tasting
We stop and tour the villa before ducking into the ancient wine cellar to do our wine and olive oil tasting accompanied by a light Tuscan snack of local products. All products are produced on 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. Our return leg back to Florence takes us by the spectacular Piazzale Michelangelo, one of the best views of Florence where we stop for pictures.
We continue downhill from there and back into Florence, coming into the San Niccolo’ area, and a ride to our favorite gelateria to top off the perfect half-day outing!
- Upgrade to an e-bike for an extra €30 per person!
