What to Expect
The countryside around Florence is full of surprises: antique villas, churches, monasteries, magnificent hills with olive trees and vineyards, and breath-taking views. The greatest Florentine master artists and scientists lived and worked in these places: Michelangelo worked on the fortifications of San Miniato, Leonardo da Vinci painted the “Annunciation” now in the Uffizi Gallery, Galileo Galilei, the first modern scientist, lived in the Villa dell’Ombrellino and Villa Il Gioiello. Enrico Fermi, father of nuclear physics together with Albert Einstein, worked in the Astronomical Observatory of Arcetri placed on the homonymous hill. A new electric bicycle and an experienced guide will allow you to discover the beauty of these places in comfort, without effort, under the shade of old cypress trees where the air is clean and time has stopped.
