What to expect

Live a unique experience, exploring the city of Florence - riding a bike through sunset and into the night. In summer, it's the coolest time of day (in more ways than one).
As darkness descends, hear the scandals involved in the mix of art, money and power that built this city into the center of medieval trade.

Start from the historical center of Florence stopping at Medici Palace, the workplace of the young artists Michelangelo, Donatello and Botticelli. Then, discover some off-the-beaten-path locations like Via de' Tornabuoni, a paradise of boutique fashion. Cross the river into the vibrant neighborhood of Santo Spirito (or Holy Spirit), where the restaurants overflow and diners eat and drink for hours.

Finally, cycle along the river past the famous Ponte Vecchio, through San Niccolò and the old city wall and then down to a beautiful river beach where you'll stop for a glass of local Tuscan wine before returning.

During the tour you will see:

  • Piazza del Duomo
  • The Medici Riccardi Palace
  • The Church of San Lorenzo
  • The Duomo & Baptistry
  • Piazza Repubblica
  • Via del Campidoglio
  • Via de’ Tournabuoni
  • The Church of Ognissanti
