A night time electric bike tour of Florence is an opportunity to enjoy the views of the city in the warm glow of the street lights. As we cross the Arno bridge, we will gaze upon the city landmarks in all their celestial glory. Upon reaching Piazzale Michelangelo, above the historic center of Florence, we will enjoy unrestricted panoramic views of the cradle of the Italian Renaissance.
The cool summer breeze will ensure that our leisurely journey along the lungarni, the embankment of the Arno River, is a pleasant one. Guided by the lights reflected on the waterway, we will arrive once again in the historic center of Florence, where we will ride through the Medieval pathways until we reach Piazza del Duomo. This is the home of the Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore, a Gothic masterpiece created by Arnolfo di Cambio in 1926, which is topped with a majestic dome designed by Filippo Brunelleschi and completed in 1436.
In the Piazza di Santa Croce, which houses the foremost Franciscan church in Florence, the Basilica di Santa Croce, we can pay homage to the great Florentine masters, including Michelangelo, Galileo, Machiavelli, Foscolo, Gentile, and Rossini, who are buried in the Tempio dell'Itale Glorie.
In Piazza della Signoria, located in front of the Palazzo Vecchio, we can recall the origins of the Florentine Republic, dating back to 1115. The square also houses the Uffizi Gallery, the Palace of the Tribunale della Mercanzia, the Loggia della Signoria, and the Palazzo Uguccioni.
In Piazza della Repubblica, on the former site of the city's forum and the ancient ghetto, we will find a number of literary cafes, such as Caffè Gilli, Paszkowski, Caffè Giubbe Rosse, and Caffè Gambrinus, where renowned scholars met in the past to discuss the latest cultural movements - notably, early twentieth-century Futurism.
We will end our nighttime tour by sampling delicious gelato, an ice cream delicacy invented in Florence.
