A fun and unique way to explore the incredible city of Florence is to cruise through the streets on an e-bike.

Discovering the joys of electric in Florence

This is one of the most relaxing ways to take in the sights with the wind in your hair but with very little effort. You’ll take in the Duomo, Piazza della Signoria, and the Uffizi Gallery without breaking a sweat.

What is an E-Bike?

An e-bike, or electric bike, is a bicycle that is powered by a small electric motor. This motor helps to propel the bike forward whenever you turn the pedals, making it easier to ride up hills and over long distances. E-bikes are a great alternative to traditional bicycles because they allow you to enjoy the benefits of cycling without having to put in as much physical effort. Don’t worry about riding it — it’s just like riding a bike.

Most e-bikes have a small battery pack that is charged using a standard household outlet. When the battery is fully charged, you can ride the e-bike for a certain distance, depending on the model and the terrain you are riding on. Most e-bikes have a range of 20 to 40 miles on a single charge. You can turn the motor off at any point and there are different settings to give you more or less power. In Italy, e-bikes are limited to 15.5mph so you never have to worry about going too fast.
