Know More about this tour

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 couldnt 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.

  • I did a 4 hour solo tour from Fiesole up to the monastery and then around back to Fiesole. I loved seeing the Tuscan country side away from Florence. Giovanni provided an extremely interesting perspective to modern life in Italy and was just lovely. Some of the slopes were a bit much for me so he helped me out. We even went off road for a little bit. The views were worth the effort and the downward slopes felt very good afterwards! Giovanni can tailor the tour to anyone and #39;s ability as he knows the routes so well. He kept checking that I was okay. He provides plenty of opportunities to stop, drink, refill bottle, bathroom, etc. This is something well worth it as its so easy to get to Feisole and you really get a unique perspective from a true local!
