Full description
Climb into the saddle of a comfortable bicycle to experience Florence from a different perspective. See sights such as the Duomo, Uffizi Gallery, and covered Ponte Vecchio over the River Arno. Visit areas that the tour buses can’t reach, and cycle down almost traffic-free streets in the historic center, venturing off the usual tourist paths.

Explore the Oltrarno quarter, where many of the city’s most notable sights are found. Cycle through the artisans area to the Renaissance palace of the Palazzo Pitti. See the cupolas of the church of San Frediano in Cestello.

Go to the famous covered bridge of the Ponte Vecchio, and bike into Piazzale degli Uffizi to see the façade of the Uffizi Gallery. Continue to the ornate exterior of the Basilica of Santa Croce, final resting place of notable Italians, including Michelangelo, Galileo and Machiavelli.

Admire the palaces of Piazza della Signoria, heart of the medieval Florentine Republic. See Brunelleschi’s iconic dome of the Duomo, and the pavement cafés of Piazza della Repubblica. Your guide will tell the story of Florence at strategic stops, giving you time to pause for an Italian gelato (ice cream) along the way.

Perfect way to tour Florence and see every major site, while not killing your feet/legs and getting a history lesson along the way. It was pouring rain for almost all of the tour, but we still had so much fun! Great tour guide, and a small group setting - perfecto!

I can thoroughly recommend this. It is a brilliant way to see beautiful Firenze and at the same time appreciate and learn about the history that is interwoven richly into the architectural landscape. Sopia was excellent, polite, informative and thorough. An absolute must for all visitors to this beautiful city.
