Important information

To do this tour, you must be confident and comfortable on a bike both in the historical city centre of Florence and on country hills and you must be fit and healthy. There is a short in-city bike riding before heading into the hills where there is an uphill section before your villa visit and snack. Please wear comfortable clothes and closed-toe shoes. Due to the nature of the ride and the size of the bicycles, children 6 and under cannot participate in this tour. For any dietary restrictions, please make a note in the Notes section so we can inform the kitchen and do our best to accommodate your requirements.

For your peace of mind: We strongly recommend when choosing a bike tour company that you check the company is a fully-licensed tour operator, as is legally required in Italy.

    What a brilliant way to end our holiday in Florence! The cycling trip was beautiful, stimulating and invigorating! The scenery around the city is just breathtaking

  9. Kim Camenzind

    The Tuscan bike and villa tour was definitely the highlight of our trip to Florence. Our guide, provided the perfect blend of knowledge and humorous anecdotes to keep us entertained and informed. The tour provided us all with an unparalleled, up close look at the Tuscan region along with a tasting of its delicious food and wine. Lastly, we all felt completely safe under our guides guidance while traveling thru a few of the more congested areas. We would highly recommend this tour! Ciao


    We loved our guide and the fact that he loves what he does and was intelligent and passionate about what he was providing to us! No difficulties whatsoever, all went smoothly. We would highly recommend this tour.

    My husband & I had a great time! Our guide was friendly and confident. There was a woman on the ride that seemed terrified to bike ride and Bill, our guide, was very patient, he did an amazing job of building her confidence throughout the day. We upgraded to electric bikes and we were so happy we did, the bike ride as very easy this way! Bill was very knowledgable on the Tuscany region. My only thing I did not “like” it I thought the review of the trip said we would bike ride into the Chianti region, which we did not. I would recommend this ride for any one who wants a day away from the crowds and wants to see the countryside
