From the company that launched the first and most popular guided bike tour of Florence, I Bike Florence, a new fun intruductory Bike tour to discover the most important locations in town and to enjoy a tasty introduction to delicious Tuscan culinary traditions.
History, art, great food. Combine the three most important ingredients of Florence in a 3-hour leisure bike tour through town with our knowledgeable and passionate professional guide.
Explore Florence, learn all the secrets about the main historic and artistic monuments and locations in town, reach locations that would be too far for a walking tour, and savour a few delicious typical products to have an idea of why we consider our culinary traditions to be part of our culture, and as important as masterpieces like Michelangelo's David.
Is it better to gaze in awe at Florence magnificent Duomo with its imposing Brunelleschi's Cupola (dome), or to bite a mouthwatering Schiacciata All'Olio? Is it sweeter to be surprised by the magic and romantic atmosphere of the Arno River slowly flowing under PonteVecchio bridge, or to have a refreshing sweet Gelato melting in your mouth?
Ask no more! Enjoy ALL of this at once while riding a vintage-style bike through the cradle of Renaissance!
You will ride through the narrow streets of the main city center and the Oltrarno district, reaching the most amazing monuments of Florence and unknown spots from where to admire the city: Piazza della Repubblica, Piazza Strozzi, the Duomo, Santa Maria Novella, the artisans district, Palazzo Pitti, Pontevecchio, the Uffizi square, Piazza della Signoria, Santa Croce etc.
The itinerary is flat and easy, mainly in pedestrian areas, so anyone can bike through Florence and join this tour.
An interesting Florence City GuideBook will be our present to give you fresh suggestions (and recipes!) and make your stay in Florence and Tuscany even more memorable.

VIP BIKE TOUR OF FLORENCE with local Food tastings
The tour runs rain or shine (but please see below).
The tour will never be cancelled due to rain.
We will do our best to proceed with the bike tour, however, in case of heavy rain, we might decide to stop the bike tour and proceed with a walking tour instead (or just start with a walking tour if the weather does not allow to use the bikes at the time of the meeting point). Should the weather get better during the tour, we will try to get back on board, when possible.
Guest options on rainy days:
1) Proceed with the tour hoping for clearing weather - with the understanding that no refund or discount will be given if bikes are not ridden due to rain, or if the bike tour is abbreviated due to rain. We will do our best to get you on a bike, weather permitting.
2) Rain check (of the same amount clients paid) to be used the following day or at any other time, subject to availability. The Rain check is a voucher given to client. The voucher is transferable and may be sold or given to others to use at a future date and lasts up to 1 year from date. It has a value that can be possible used in any other tour provided by our company.
Please note that clients' safety and comfort are of utmost priority, and proper rain gear is mandatory for guests choosing to "ride in the possible rain".
We ask clients to be at the meeting point 15 minutes before the tour departure, to check the weather conditions and choose accordingly.
No-shows will not be refunded.
