The bike tour covers roughly 17 miles (27 km), with only about 295 feet of elevation gain uphill, but it is designed for people who are at least occasional cyclists.

    • We had such a fun afternoon biking from the hills above Fiesole through olive groves and back into Florence. The bikes were good quality and Giovanni was very conscientious of my kids on their bikes. I would recommend this activity to anyone who wants a countryside view of Florence.

    • This tour was amazing!
