The Arno river and the Florentine hills

Fattoria di Poggiopiano is close to the city-center of Florence on the hilltops of Fiesole looking south out of the river Arno. Cyclinginflorence and Poggiopiano share the same attention for a low impact on the environment. The estate owners, Elisabetta and Mauro, have a passion for high quality production of wine and extra-vergine olive oil following the regulation of organic agriculture.

From the city-center we’ll reach the Arno banks to start biking on the new cyclepath, the easiest way to reach the farm of Poggiopiano. A relaxing bike tour to enjoy the spectacular atmosphere and colours of the Florentine countryside following the water-course of the Arno, where we’ll stop to admire the medioeval water mills.

Leaving the river we’ll start a short and soft climb through the olive groves and vineyards to admire the most beautiful panorama on the Arno Valley and reach the Poggiopiano farm where we’ll relax and enjoy an exclusive biological wine and olive oil tasting.


Half Day tour morning or afternoon
