Enjoy a small-group bike tour in Fiesole, the heart of Tuscany, in the middle of the Florence countryside. Just a few steps away from the city, it's an area dedicated to nature and appreciated by active people who love biking and outdoor sports.
The tour follows a path through green trails and remote country routes immersed in a unique landscape full of olive groves, vineyards, secular cypress trees, farmhouses, ancient villas and churches. It's truly a natural amphitheater shaped by men’s work.
The half-day tour departs from Fiesole, about 20 minutes by bus from the center of Florence.
The city of Florence lies along the river Arno, in the middle of a basin surrounded by beautiful hills, among which stands the Fiesole hill, representing one of the most characteristic and interesting landscapes of Tuscany.
The sudden transition to countryside couldn’t be more unexpected, with Fiesole marking the crucial point of separation. Traveling becomes an exciting adventure in search of ancient memories and unforgettable scents and colors, through remote valleys and ancient roads.
After first walking around the town of Fiesole, you'll enjoy a superb viewpoint above Florence. Then, we'll spend the day biking through splendid trails and country roads, in the middle of original and unique Italian landscapes.
Please note: The ride length is 18 miles and uphill elevation gain is 2,500 feet. The level of difficulty along the cross country path requires an average level of training in terms of length and decline, familiarity with riding a bicycle, as there might be some dangerous sections (steep downhills) on some unpaved roads and easy trails.
