    The Bell Tower, which is visible from nearly every vantage point in the city, is one of the most iconic landmarks of Florence. The free-standing tower, 280 feet tall, is considered the best example of 14th-century Gothic architecture in the city.  Views from the top are said to be breathtaking, but at 414 steps, I didn’t make the trip, since I didn’t know how they would get me down after my heart attack.

    We purchased tickets on line prior to our trip for 8:15am entry. Great to be early and beat the crowds. The climb was fine. At times very tight circles and at the end very steep. I found going down more of a challenge. The view from the top was stunning on a beautiful sunny morning. I don’t like heights but felt safe at the top as it was all wired in. Do the climb.

    We stumbled upon this while walking through Florence. We watched the game where the former players get to go out for one game.
    It was so much fun. Something so different than American sports and it was great to see the pride each person had for their neighborhood!!
    If this even is happening while in Florence, you MUST go!

    Done lots of escape rooms and the first was so good we did both. Very challenging, but not "stupid confusing" like where you have to make totally not obvious leaps. All the clues were super clear once you figured them out. Probably one of the best put together escape rooms I've done in awhile!

    Firstly it’s worth noting we did this in Italian, and I’m not sure it can be done in English, but if you have someone Italian with you who can translate it should be ok for you.

    We found it very good, and very scary! Really liked the effort and detail put into the rooms. Was incredibly complex which is fun (not too easy) but they include red herrings to throw you off which can waste a lot of time and you can’t really know if it’s supposed to be solved or not, which was a little annoying but didn’t ruin the experience.

    The staff were super friendly very scary, and made things really fun for us!

    Thanks for having us :)

    Great tour, fantastic views, easy ride - except the end which is really, really hard but you can take the van either before the end hill or half way, after you realize how hard it is.

    Lunch was great, pasta, fresh tomatoes, bean salad, homemade desert, coffee, etc. all homemade by a sweet older Italian woman

    What a wonderful way to see Chianti. Ben and Angus were our guides and they were so friendly and truly cared about what they do. They are full of knowledge and made us as first time Vespa riders so comfortable. The lunch after the tour at Grazia’s home was very very special. Highly recommend, such an awesome experience.

    We had a great day with Giorgio and Tuscan Car Tours! So friendly and so knowledgeable of the region. He showed us all the best views, helped us plan an itinerary, and kept us engaged on the way home even after too many glasses of wine at Cecchini’s. Thank you, Giorgio!

    This is such a fun/unique activity to do if you want to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city! However If you or someone in your party don’t have some motorcycle or driving experience this is not the tour for you! Dejan who was leading the Vespa tour was the absolute best! Hilarious and such a fun time. Afterwards Luca gave a tour of a family owned winery. It was such a fun experience and was the highlight of our vacation!

    Our bike tour with Chris was a highlight of our trip to Italy! Chris was an incredible guide in all the important ways. He showed up at our hotel early, energetic and smiling. He took great care of us during the day, keeping us safe on the road, pointing out the many interesting sites, recommending a great lunch restaurant in San Gimignano, and telling us great stories - historical and personal - to bring Tuscany alive for us. He is very thoughtful too - he went out of his way to take us to a pharmacy where we could buy urgently needed allergy meds for our teenager, and took some great family photos that we will cherish for years to come. Did I mention the scrumptious gelato, and the wine?
    I should also mention Marco, who we corresponded with to arrange the tour. He kindly set us up on this private day trip with Chris when the group tour we had planned to take was full. We'll definitely be doing another I Bike Tuscany tour next time we're in Italy. Highly highly recommend!

    Really enjoyed the 4 hr guided bike tour to the Tuscan countryside. Knowledgeable and fun guide. While not such a strenuous ride there were hills and I recommend an e-bike to make the experience more enjoyable. Note you have to contact them before your trip separately to book the e-bike. There is also a 6 hr tour way into the country which comes with e-bikes which I wish we would have done but we didn’t have the time. 2 of our group of 7 were having a hard time and our guide personally went back to the shop about 15 min into the trip to get that person an e-bike. Very nice of him. It’s crazy riding bikes in Florence but relatively peaceful out in the country.

    Hands down the best way to see Florence! John was incredible! Very knowledgeable and so accommodating with our 20 month old daughter. The route was easy to navigate and thoughtfully mapped out. Some of the best views of the city and a nice visit to a local winery with delicious wines and snacks! John even recommended an amazing place to eat lunch once we were done. Couldn’t have asked for a better tour. Please go do this! You won’t regret it.
