Best of Florence by Bike

Head through the alleys and cobblestone streets lined by Renaissance era buildings. See where Dante, Michelangelo and Da Vinci lived, worked, and created some of the world's most important art and literature.

Piazza della Signoria, Piazza Santa Croce, and Florence's Great Squares

Head through Piazza della Signoria, home to the Uffizi Gallery and Florence's City Hall, Palazzo Vecchio. Though not as tall as the Dome nearby, the great bell tower of Palazzo Vecchio is a symbol of Florence and the Medici. In the square you will see great statues by Donatello, Giambologna, and a copy of Michelangelo's famous David.

Later, In Piazza Santa Croce, take in the hustle and bustle of Florence. The perfect place to people-watch while drinking a cappuccino, it is also ideal to take in by bike. See the statue dedicated to the father of the Italian language Dante who is buried at the Basilica located in the square.

Brunelleschi's Dome and the Duomo

Ride past the towering dome that makes Florence's skyline recognizable worldwide. See Filippo Brunelleschi's massive cupola that is still the largest masonry dome ever built. Learn about the impressive feat of architecture as you pedal through Piazza del Duomo. Beyond the dome, take in the intricate stone work of the Basilica di Santa Maria del Fiore and the Baptistry at the center of Florence's most visited square.

Palazzo Pitti and the Oltrarno Neighborhood

Away from the crowds in the historical center, enjoy the tranquility of the Oltrarno neighborhood. Located directly across the Arno river, it is home to the grand Pitti Palace. From this side of the river, you will observe the best views of the city. Take photos of the Florentine skyline worthy of a frame.

Gelato!

The day concludes with a delicious gelato. Lastly, visit one of the city's best gelaterias where you will be able to choose your perfect combination of flavors.

Greta was fantastic! She knew all the modern and ancient history and we saw all the best sites! Biking is an amazing way to see a lot in a short amount of time and it’s great when you are with some as knowledgeable as Greta!

A Really Fun Experience for Teens too!

Me and my boys loved this tour. I was worried about finding them a tour that wouldn't be boring and this was perfect. What was the name of the gelato place we went? It was soooo good.
