Full description
Focus on Florence – A photographic tour of Florence by bike Take a guided trip through the historical center of Florence to learn about this city of art and history and see and photograph some of its most compelling views on a 2-hour tour of more than 20 of its top attractions. Traveling by bicycle allows you to cover more of the city on this photographic odyssey through Florence, visiting both well known sites and hidden gems, and stopping at the best vantage points to take the perfect picture. At the end of the tour, the best photo taken, as judged by a photography expert, wins a prize. The entire center of the city is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and this eco-friendly tour departs from Piazza Santissima Annunziata, home of the National Archaeological Museum and Spedale degli Innocenti. Continue through aristocratic streets and stop at the Synagogue and the historic Flea Market. Pause for a photo in front of Santa Croce Church, a symbol of Florence, known for its stunning 14th-Century frescoes. Leaving the Santa Croce district, you will pass the home of Michelangelo and cross over the Arno River via the famous Ponte Vecchio. Visit Porta San Niccolò, Pitti Palace and the Santo Spirito Church, containing a crucifix carved by Michelangelo, before cycling back over the Arno to Piazza Signoria. Stop to catch your breath and snap a photo at the Neptune Fountain and the magnificent Medici Palazzo Vecchio. No trip to Florence is complete without seeing Piazza Repubblica and the extraordinary Duomo, the last stops of the 2-hour tour. The easy-to-operate bicycles come with helmets for your safety and an earphone so that you can easily hear your personal tour escort.

    Great the bike route. Fully recommended

    My wife was my two children of 11 and 9 years and despite arriving with a little delay we wait for the guide and they called us from the agency to verify and wait for us. Fantastic route when going by bike very enjoyable.
