To do this tour, you must be confident and comfortable on a bike both in the historical city centre of Florence and on country hills and you must be fit and healthy. There is a short in-city bike riding before heading into the hills where there is an uphill section before your villa visit and snack. Please wear comfortable clothes and closed-toe shoes. Due to the nature of the ride and the size of the bicycles, children 6 and under cannot participate in this tour. For any dietary restrictions, please make a note in the Notes section so we can inform the kitchen and do our best to accommodate your requirements.
For your peace of mind: We strongly recommend when choosing a bike tour company that you check the company is a fully-licensed tour operator, as is legally required in Italy. Not being fully-licensed means under local laws you travel at your own risk as it is impossible to have adequate or appropriate liability insurance. Our company, The Original and Best Tours, is a fully licensed and bonded travel agency Reg. Lic 516411 and is a member of ASTA, the American Society of Travel Agents.
