Taste of Tuscany sunset Tour
Experience the famous Florence sunset with a guided ride into the Tuscan Hills with a stop at Piazzale Michelangelo, stopping along the way for a typical Italian evening aperitivo.
Our meeting point 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 2 km uphill ride, but frequent stops will be made to enjoy the views on the way up to the top of the hill. Once we arrive at the top, we will be riding 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. We will stop for an evening aperitivo. Our return leg back to Florence will take us by the spectacular Piazzale Michelangelo for the sunset and pictures with one of the best views of Florence. Then it is all downhill and back into Florence, coming into the San Niccolo' area, and a ride to our favorite gelateria to top off the perfect evening!
