The city centre of Florence with its great sights such as the cathedral and the world famous art museums can be explored on foot. But almost all visitors of the city also want to see the fantastic landscapes of the surroundings. After all, Tuscany is considered one of the most beautiful regions of Italy.
Bicycle tours have been popular among tourists in Tuscany for decades. Since Tuscany and the surrounding area of Florence are relatively mountainous, traditional cycling is quite arduous. With the E-Bike you can master the ascents without problems and enjoy the beautiful landscape quiet.
Most vacationers go on an organized tour by e-bike. It is best to book such a bike trip at home in peace and quiet on the Internet before travelling to Italy. Such trips are also possible for people who can ride a bicycle but have no experience with an e-bike. Many good offers on the Internet can be found on the website Getyourguide. In the following some examples.

With your own e-bike ride in Tuscany
To our knowledge, taking an e-bike with you on an airplane is not easy. The reason for this is that the battery is considered a hazardous good and cannot simply be taken along in passenger aircraft. You have to send the battery in advance with a freight plane (or of course the whole bike). Another possibility is to travel to Florence or Tuscany by train or car.
