BIKE TOUR DETAILS
The bike tour will start from a meeting point in Fiesole. After a short explanation of the e-bike use, we will start our riding by bike. We will meet the Florentine countryside with our e-bikes and we will see wonderful landscapes with olive groves, vineyards and typical Tuscany hills.
We will reach the historical park of Villa Demidoff near Florence and we will meet the tourist guide to start the guided tour in e-bike inside the enchanting park.
We will see the Villa that Bernardo Buontalenti built for Francesco I de’ Medici and his beloved Bianca Cappello. Buontalenti, the Mannerist architect, also designed the huge Italian garden with several artificial grottoes and the amazing water features which astonished all the visitors. In 1818, with the arrival of the Lorena family in Florence, the Medici’s Villa was demolished and the park was given a new English and romantic appearance. This is the garden which will be visible for you.
In 1872 the park was purchased by Paolo Demidoff, a Russian rich man from St. Petersburg, who built his residence in the service wing of the Medici’s Villa.
We will continue with the cycling and we will be breathless once in front of the most famous wonder of the park: “The Giant of the Appennines”, a colossal sculpture by the Flemish artist Jehan Boulogne, known as Giambologna.
A tour in the greenery of the splendid park will allow you to appreciate the visible and the invisible too.
