Florence and a Taste of Tuscany Half Day

Ride through Florence out into the Tuscan Hills with a visit to a Renaissance villa winery for olive oil and wine tasting.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 and tour the villa before ducking into the ancient wine cellar to do our wine and olive oil tasting accompanied by a light Tuscan snack of local products. All products are produced on premises, and being such a small family production, they are only sold locally. Both the wine and olive oil are available for purchase and shipping. Our return leg back to Florence will take us by the spectacular Piazzale Michelangelo, one of the best views of Florence where we will stop for pictures. We continue downhill from there and back into Florence, coming into the San Niccolo' area, and a ride to our favorite gelateria to top off the perfect half day outing!

Bike Italy, the first and original single and multi-day bike tour out of Florence, has been liberating foot-worn and weary travelers from the routine of the trains and cities since 1993! We invite you to a change of pace and scenery, feel a cool breeze, breathe some fresh air and really see Tuscany!

Being the longest running bike tour company has allowed us to really refine our tours and bring you the best of what Tuscany has to offer. Our passion for both cycling and Tuscany has allowed us to create itineraries and relationships that have withstood the test of time and made our tours a "personal" experience for many of our guests.

Our itineraries often include stops, breaks or even lunch at a friend's house and not a tourist venue. The recent addition of our 100% Florentine business partner that helps us do business in Italy, has greatly expanded our group of friends and family that we will take you to meet. On our tours, we will take you behind doors and gates that can only be unlocked and opened by I Bike Italy! You will meet our friends on the road and in their houses where we are invited in to see how the Florentines live. You will use the oil at lunch that we use in our kitchen back home and drink the wine that we have on our dinner table for our best friends. By the end of the tour we hope that you will not think of us as just a bike tour supplier, but as new friends that you have in Tuscany!
