Visiting Florence by bike: itineraries and cycling trails

Today we propose you a series of bike itineraries in Florence to all cycle enthusiasts. This post is dedicated to those who love to explore the city by bike when on holiday, a little for passion, a little to speed up times and a little to save energy 😉

Although it seems appropriate to let you know that the ideal is to visit the historic centre on foot (because of the constant traffic of pedestrians), the fact remains that you can take advantage of bike itineraries in the city and explore paths that are not part of the classic touristic tour of the historic centre.

Bike itineraries in Florence for enthusiasts and experts

Let us start with those who are less experienced and prefer to stay on flat stretches. First of all, please note that even in the hotel there are at your disposal city bikes for hire which are suitable for this kind of excursions. For more information, you can also call the concierge to or on the phone at +39.055.27370.

Bike itineraries in Florence

The first proposal concerns the itinerary along the Arno River, where the cycle area goes from Ponte Vecchio to Ponte della Vittoria (except for brief interruptions) or, on the opposite bank of the river, between Ponte alle Grazie and Ponte dell’Anconella.

Another interesting itinerary is the one that goes from the Parco delle Cascine (completely covered by bicycle), continuing along the Arno River until the park Renai di Signa, a natural and relaxing zone with pools, bar and a playground area for children.

Now go slightly to more demanding routes…

Who has trained for a short climb of about 2 kilometres can think of reaching Piazzale Michelangelo by bike and enjoy the wonderful panorama of the city.

Finally, athletes will be able to enjoy the climb of Fiesole. The itinerary is as follows: starting from the centre, you reach the area of ​​Cure, then Via San Domenico and after 5 kilometres uphill you get to Fiesole. You will then return to the centre down from Pian di Mugnone, passing through the village of Ponte alla Badia and Via Salviati.

We inform you that there are bike-sharing points also in Florence.

We wait for you with the bike itineraries in Florence!
