Discover the Florentine hills in a new smart and easy way. An adventure between art, landscapes, and Tuscan flavours with an eco-friendly means of transportation, this tour will end with a sample of wine and Tuscan finger foods. Starting from the city center of Florence, reach the picturesque hills of Fiesole, where the serenity of the Tuscan countryside meets some of the most spectacular views over the city! Riding an e-bike is as easy as riding a traditional bicycle: thanks to the powerful engine, we can ride uphill with just a little effort. From the heart of Florence, follow your guide to cross all the neighborhoods of the city, far from the historical center and the most popular areas of the downtown: thanks to the bike paths, getting to the hills is easy-going. Once outside the town, the electric engine will help to deal with the Tuscan hills. Immerse yourself into the sound, the good smells and the colours of the countryside, with secular cypresses, olive groves and small vineyards hidden in the middle of the hills where Leonardo da Vinci used to come for his studies. From here, we can admire some of the most beautiful panoramic views over Florence. Turn by turn, we’ll reach Fiesole, a small Etruscan town that, from above, dominates the Northside of the hills: a perfect frame to see how a small village of the IV Century BC combines its history with some of the most exclusive private villas around Florence. Before we get back where the tour started, a small Osteria will delight us with some wine, accompanied by a small taste of Florentine food...Cheers! Please note the order of visits may change. This small group lasts approximately 3.5 hours.
