If you decide to take the option of cycling, you will enjoy well-earned views of great pieces of architecture. There are not only huge city dwelling structures for you to enjoy though. As you journey from the center of Florence, you will enjoy the more rustic vineyards and farms. Places where you can stop off to enjoy the local wine and food, stop off for lunch before setting off again. You can even make it the last stop on your tour, treating yourself to an extra glass of wine!
Alternatively, take the Segway tour Florence and zoom around the streets in your group, passing the Florence Cathedral (Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore). Just a couple of minutes later, when you’ve zoomed past all the other tourists to Plaza de la Republica and onto Fontana del Porcellino.
The beauty of a Segway is not only that it takes you between spots on your trip with no effort on your part. The best thing about the Segway tour Florence is the extra time this gives you. A time you can spend relaxing in Piazza di Santa Croce, enjoying the buskers outside Basilica di Santa Croce.
This extra time is also a fantastic opportunity to add so much value to your tour. Let’s say you’re on a walking tour, you’re at Il Duomo, you want to also visit Palazzo Vecchio and Uffizi Gallery. Moving between all of these sites AND learning about the fascinating stories behind these sites. How did Brunelleschi complete his architectural marvel when the laws of physics said a structure of that size should have collapsed? What inventions did he come up with to make this possible and create arguably the building that has become the iconic symbol of Florence?
There are a few reasons to take a bike tour or a Segway tour Florence. One reason, comfort! While Florence isn’t a huge city like London or Barcelona, it can take the shine off your visit if you’re tired and sweaty with aching feet. So why not move in supreme comfort, enjoying the sun while the wind keeps you nice and cool as you move along the streets on your bike/ Segway.
Picture the scene, admiring the statue of David at the Galleria dell’Accademia, only to realize that to get to your next spot, the Boboli Gardens, you’ll be walking for more than half an hour! Sure, you’ll have time for both, but it’s unlikely you’ll have sufficient time to stop and truly appreciate the aesthetic.
Once you’ve completed the whistle-stop tour you’ll be regretting that you didn’t have time to stop longer. Taking the time to see every piece of Michelangelo’s David. The piece of work that when people walked past his studio, they marveled at how fast he worked. If only you’d taken a Florence bike tour or even a Segway tour Florence, you’d have so much more time! Gone are the worries about fitting everything in and maybe having a rushed lunch. Instead, leisurely explore Florence by bike and enjoy all the picturesque Florence sights.
Get a Florence city bike tour or head to the Tuscan hills on a full day bike tour. Head off on your small group tour to the Uffizi Gallery or the famous Ponte Vecchio bridge. Cycle through the Florentine hills on your way to a wine tasting with your travel companion and local guide.
Exploring Florence by Segway is perfect for anyone who doesn’t want to waste time and energy walking between destinations. A Segway gives you all the control and maneuverability of a walking tour, without so much traveling time.
No, interesting sites and monuments are very close to each other. You can see most of the main attractions in a single day. However, if you’re constantly walking (aside from the physical effort) you won’t have so much time to stop and enjoy these attractions.
You should definitely book tickets for the bike and Segway tours in advance. Group size is limited, we can’t have 100 Segways blocking the streets of Florence all listening to one guide! Make sure you don’t miss out and book your tickets in advance.
A tour from a guide isn’t absolutely necessary, but it definitely enhances the experience. The knowledge from a local guide can be invaluable. Information on where monuments are, when they were built, for what purpose, fascinating origin stories all enhance this experience rather than if you were to simply admire the aesthetic.
A guide can be equally useful on a bike or Segway tour as they will know the best paths and most picturesque routes. Aside from small navigational tips, their knowledge of the history of the sites you will visit makes the trip even more special. Learn all about why Michelangelo worked so hard on the statue of David. The reason he worked furiously, completing his work so much faster than his peers were able to complete their work.
On your bike or Segway, you can cover much more ground than on foot. So let your fellow travelers drag themselves through the streets, rushing to these amazing sites. All the while you get to glide comfortably along. Stopping to take as many pictures as you like or simply to sit and admire them.
