With the magnificent landscape surrounding Florence, it's no wonder creative minds flourished here. This inspiration fostered a time of enlightenment and cultural revolution, the Renaissance. Michelangelo created stunning art, Galileo developed revolutionary scientific ideas, and Leonardo da Vinci brought creative beauty to life. Much later, Enrico Fermi, the father of nuclear physics, and Albert Einstein worked together at the nearby Arcetri Astrophysical Observatory.
Certainly any of these great minds would have appreciated the invention of the electric bicycle, the vehicle on which you'll take an effortless ride from the center of the city out to the rolling Tuscan countryside. Your tour group will travel through more of the region and take in the fresh air and likely abundant sunshine to boot.
You'll begin in the center of Florence, where you'll learn how to operate your bike safely before the adventure takes off. Your guide will show you notable landmarks as you head out of town and see the Italy that most people dream about. Revel in its charming villages, lush farmlands, shady cypress trees, and winding roads that provide your scenic tour pathway.
Delight in the Medieval-era villas, churches, and monasteries, replete with olive groves and vineyards. It is here that the greatest Florentine master artists and scientists lived and worked. Michelangelo worked on the fortifications of San Miniato. Galileo lived in the Villa dell’Ombrellino and Villa Il Gioiello. Da Vinci painted The Annunciation, now in the Uffizi Gallery. Stop at the Piazzale Michelangelo, which arguably offers the most spectacular views of Florence below. May this GoBe tour inspire your own legendary creative thinking.
Piazzale Michelangelo, the square designed by 19th-century architect Giuseppe Poggi and built on a hill in 1869, was once part of Florence's city walls. Dedicated to Michelangelo, it was supposed to showcase the Renaissance sculptor's works. However, it never quite developed as planned. What did make it there is a bronze replica of the statue David and the four allegories of the Medici Chapel of San Lorenzo. In 1873, it took nine pairs of oxen to bring the monument up the hill. This is the second copy to the original David that resides at the Accademia Gallery in the city. Not too shabby.
