The meeting point inside the historical city walls of Florence is in the authentic and quiet neighborhood of Oltrarno. From here, we'll start riding outside Florence through a prestigious residential area to reach the pristine Tuscany rolling hills.  After getting out of the Porta Romana gate, we'll face the first hill 1.3 km (0,8 miles). Once we arrive at the top, we will see Villa Poggio Imperiale, an ancient Medici family Villa, that is also a Unesco heritage site. From here on (about 20 minutes after the tour starts) we will be in the Tuscan countryside! So get ready for some great views over the rolling hills, Villas, and olive groves.   After another 45 minutes of peaceful riding in the hills, we'll stop at a Villa or an ancient literary cafe (depending on availability, both are also farms) immersed in the countryside and tour the olive orchards before continuing to your wine and olive oil tasting. Pair a glass of local Chianti wine and the handmade extra virgin olive oil with a light Tuscan snack comprised of local cold cuts, handmade bread, and farm-produced honey when available! The olive oil is produced on the premises and being a small family production, everything is organic and sustainable. Your return leg back to Florence will take you by the spectacular San Miniato al Monte, one of the best views of Florence where you can stretch your legs and take some great pictures of the Renaissance city. Continue downhill and back into Florence, finishing in the San Niccolo area. If you bike regularly, this will be an easy/intermediate ride, depending on your level. There are 4 hills to climb on the tour, so please consider your fitness level or ask us in advance to upgrade to an E-bike if you are not looking for a workout (limited availability).
