A sense of freedom

Summer tour

AN ADVENTURE THAT STARTS OR ENDS AT THE RHYTHM OF THE SUN

Florence can be extremely hot during the summer. However, in just a few minutes one can reach the hills of Fiesole and enjoy a cooler climate, away from the heat of the city.
Cycling at sunrise or sunset through the countryside is a truly unique experience.
An adventure that starts or ends at the rhythm of the sun: a dance of colours, smells and sounds that can only be discovered when the world seems to slow down.
This experience is meant for sport lovers and for all those who consider physical exercise a means of freedom, energy and joy.
For a better outcome, tours are designed for a maximum of four persons (except special arrangements for private tour).

Tour is by appointment only, and it is scheduled according to the seasons and the sun. Departure and arrival will be with dark, so participants will be wearing reflective suspenders and bikes will be equipped with lights. There are no particularly challenging paths or trail stretches, except for only dirt and/or paved roads. That being said, you still need to have good physical conditions and be able to ride a bike safely. The tour is definitely not suitable for casual cyclists and beginners.
Both tours (at sunrise and sunset) may terminate either in Fiesole or in the city centre of Florence.
