Full description

Enjoy a day in the open air and discover the Tuscan countryside on ane-bike. Pedal peacefully through olive groves, vineyards, blossoming trees and rolling hills in the production area of Chianti, the prized wine exported all over the world.

A local guide will take you on a discovery of the wonderful landscapes of the hilly area around Florence, where you can admire noble residences, medieval villages and typical farms, as well as breathtaking natural beauty. And at the end you cannot miss an excellent tasting of wine and extra virgin olive oil.

The pedal-assisted bike, with its different levels of adjustment, will make this 27 km tour enjoyable and suitable for everyone, even those who are not particularly fit.

Get ready for a plunge into the most authentic Tuscany!

What we will do

We will meet at 8.30 a.m. (scheduled departure at 9 a.m.) in Florence. The guide will pick us up in his van to take us to our starting point in the Tuscan countryside, some thirty kilometres from the city. Here our e-bike excursion will begin. After setting up the bikes and an explanatory briefing on the route, we will start cycling on asphalt and white roads in the middle of the Tuscan countryside.

We will ride past ancient olive groves and lush vineyards, in an area famous throughout the world for its wine-growing tradition. We will stop at the most scenic spots to take photographs and fill our eyes with the beauty of nature, and then ready to pedal again to Badia a Passignano, where we will find the stupendous centuries-old abbey with its crenellated towers dominating the Chianti valley.

We will then reach the village of Greve in Chianti where we will have 45 minutes to enjoy the magical atmosphere of one of the most beautiful medieval villages in Italy and taste some local culinary specialities (lunch is not included in the participation fee). Afterwards, we will get off our bikes in the direction of an excellent wine and extra-virgin olive oil tasting.

At the end of the activity, around 17:00, we will be driven back to Florence.

Who it is aimed at

This activity is at an intermediate level. It is suitable for families, couples, groups of friends, individuals and anyone who is able to tackle a 27 km route by bike, considering that the pedalling is facilitated by the electric motor of the e-bikes. The minimum recommended age is 10 years.
