Fiesole in the Heart of Tuscany

FROM FIESOLE THROUGH TO THE COUNTRYSIDE: GREENWAYS A FEW STEPS AWAY FROM FLORENCE


The city of Florence, the heart of Tuscany, lies along the course of river Arno, in the middle of a basin surrounded by beautiful hills, among which stands the Fiesole Hills (300 m / 1000 ft a.s.l.), representing one of the most characteristic and peculiar landscapes of Tuscany and one of the most renowned in the world.
Therefore visiting this territory means travelling through time and space, and the bike (shortening and sweetening lengths) is the ideal means of transport to rejoin Fiesole and the adjacent countryside with the splendid streets and squares of Florence.

BIKE TOURS BETWEEN THE CITY AND THE COUNTRYSIDE


The northern border of Florence is marked by Settignano, the half-moon shaped hills of Fiesole and Montececeri, which surround the city, separating it from the countryside. A little further Montesenario, Montemorello and the slopes of Monte Giovi announce the mountains: the Appennino!

The sudden transition from the city to countryside couldn’t be more unexpected, with Fiesole marking the crucial point of separation and thanks to a wide selection of off-road trails and singletracks, hikers and bikers are able to move in every season on itineraries of every kind and difficulty.
In the heart of Tuscany, a few steps away from Florence, travelling becomes an exciting and funny adventure in search for ancient memories and unforgettable scents and colors, through remote places and ancient roads.
