Private Florence Night Bike Tour

Your Florence Private Night Bike Experience

Our Private Florence Night Bike Tour is the perfect way to end your day in Florence.  We’ll venture into the Santo Spirito neighborhood to take in the night life and stop for a glass of wine along the river.  The advantage of a private tour is flexibility; with a guide guaranteed just for your group, you are free to stay at sites as long as you’d like, or indulge in that extra glass of wine! 

This tour pairs perfectly with a late dinner or a stroll through town as the sun is setting and the city cools down.  We would love to show your private party Florence at night through our eyes!

  • Expand/Collapse What cycling skill level do I need for this tour?

    While all of our tours maintain a leisurely pace, we want our guests to have fun and be safe, so being able to ride a bike is paramount.

    Our Florence Bike Tour is perfect for intermediate bike riders. You should have good balance, be able to start and stop comfortably, and be familiar with hand brakes. Most of this tour is on roads and although we stick together as a group and carve out a lane for ourselves, we ask that all guests feel confident with their riding ability. The road surfaces in Florence vary and may include cobbled streets as well as smooth gravel and pavement.

    Safety is our number one priority but confidence in yourself is the first step to overall group safety.

    If you're not sure how you'll fare, we invite you to come to our office about 30 minutes prior to your tour start time to try the bikes.

  • Expand/Collapse Is this tour appropriate for children?

    Yes! This bike tour is a wonderful way for kids comfortable on bikes to discover Florence. We only ask that your children have been riding for a while, are comfortable riding in a group, and can navigate riding a bike on various surfaces including cobbled streets.

    Please keep in mind that children under 18 years old must be accompanied by an adult on the tour.

    • We have various sized city bikes to accommodate just about every size of rider, from extra small 20 inch wheeled bikes for riders that are 3.3ft (100cm) to extra large for riders up to 6.5ft (198cm).

    Our tours run rain or shine, and we have rain ponchos available in our office free of cost. We encourage all guests to consult the weather forecast and plan your dress accordingly.
