Florence Bike Rentals

Bike Rentals in Florence 

Tired of walking? Have you been dreaming about whizzing past the crowds in Florence? Fancy a picnic along the river? Then gliding through the city on our cruiser bikes is the answer! Reaching the top of Michelangelo’s square is perfectly accessible using the beautiful bike lanes surrounding the city. 

You will be equipped with a lock, a luggage rack for securing small bags, and bike lights.  You can pick up your rental at any time during the day, but do know that our morning tours leave between 10am-10:30am, so our office will be quite busy during that time! 

Traveling with kids? We have 20” and 24” wheeled bicycles available for children. Contact our team if you aren’t sure which size is best for your child to ensure we reserve the right size for you. Unfortunately, we do not have tricycles, tandems, or bikes with training wheels for adults or children that may be less confident in their riding ability. We do however have limited baby seats and kids tag-along options.

All of our bikes have 3 gears and are made of aluminium frames with adjustable seat heights. You can choose between the red bikes (with sloping cross bars that make it easy to swing your leg over to get on and dismount the bike) or blue bikes (with higher crossbars that look more like mountain bikes, but the handlebars come up to meet you so that you won’t be bent over). There is no need to decide up front which bike you’d like; you can try out both models at our office. Florence is a very bike-friendly city and cars are used to sharing the road with cyclists, scooters and pedestrians.

Our staff are looking forward to meeting you and helping you experience the best that Florence has to offer.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Expand/Collapse What kind of bikes do you have?

    We have 3-speed city bikes, so you'll be upright and able to look around and enjoy the city.  They of course come with fat tires so that you can take on the cobblestone streets in the old parts of town, and a luggage rack on the back where you can securely fasten small bags.

  • Expand/Collapse Is a helmet included? Do I have to wear one?

    Helmets are provided, however in Italy adults are not compelled by law to wear a helmet. It is compulsory only for kids up to 12 years old. We have helmets of all sizes available in our office.

  • Expand/Collapse Are reservations required to rent a bike?

    Reservations are highly recommended in the summer months - our first priority is our tours, and then we will rent any extra bikes.  Email us to book your bikes!

  • Expand/Collapse What if I decide that I'd like to keep the bike longer?

    You can choose to hold onto your bike for longer and just pay the difference when you return. Just be sure to note our seasonal opening hours and get in contact with us if you want to arrange a specific drop-off time. However we will ask that any kid's bikes & equipment be brought back at the agreed upon time, as these items are in high demand for our tours.

  • Expand/Collapse What documents are required to rent a bike?

    A valid ID (identity card, passport, military card, etc.).

  • Expand/Collapse Is there a deposit or insurance?

    There is a deposit if you want to pay by cash at the office. It will be kept for the duration of your rental and given back to you at the end. If you want to pay by card, we will temporarily keep your card on file as a guarantee but charge you only the rental fee. We also keep a copy of your ID card (passport, driver's license, military id, etc.).

  • Expand/Collapse Will I have a basket?

    Our bikes have luggage racks on the back with bungee cords, and our team will help you secure your day pack so that it's safe and thief-proof.
