      Prepare yourself. Florence is gonna put a spell on you. This capital of the Tuscany region is blessed with more significant historic sites than anyone could appreciate in a typical visit. That's okay, Florence is perfect for biking and you're going to cover a lot of ground on two wheels.

      On this entertaining GoBe bike tour, you'll enrich your Renaissance knowledge as you hit the narrow lanes and walkways with an experienced guide who loves this beautiful and cultured Italian city and knows how to tell a good tale.

      Ride the narrow streets of the main center and head south of the Arno to the Oltrarno. Here you'll be off the beaten path in an area most tourists don't know about, yet you'll still be in the historic center of the city. As you navigate through this charming quarter, you'll discover its artistic treasures in museums like the Pitti Palace and churches like Santo Spirito.

      Later, cross Florence's most famous bridge, Ponte Vecchio, where butchers and tanners once tossed their waste into the Arno River but now where jewelers and art dealers display their beautiful merchandise. Arrive at the Piazza della Signoria, the focal point of the Florentine Republic. It's adjacent to the Uffizi Gallery, a 16th-century building that houses a vast collection of Primitive and Renaissance masterpieces. Listen to stories about Florence's politicians and the political-themed statues ringing the square.

      Feel the wind in your hair as you cruise through the city's most popular highlights including the Piazza della Repubblica, Basilica of Santa Croce, the Brunelleschi-designed Duomo (aka Santa Maria del Fiore), and the adjacent Giotto's Campanile. After seeing these beloved places, you'll agree that Florence has cast a powerful spell over you.

      The gravity-defying dome

      Il Duomo ("the dome") of Santa Maria del Fiore dominates the Florence skyline, both as a work of aesthetic design and an engineering marvel. In 1418, the town fathers held a contest to see who could design a roof for their open cathedral. Filippo Brunelleschi, a young goldsmith with no formal architectural training, won. He conceived of a structure that could support itself as it was built. His design contained two shells, an inner one made of lightweight materials that workers could sit upon to build a wind-resistant outer shell. He also used a herringbone brick pattern and solved one construction problem after another. His genius continues to withstand the test of time
