Gran Fondo Florence cycling tour

The Florence – Firenze Gran Fondo is one of the youngest and most interesting events on the Italian scene. The Gran Fondo Firenze has brought a cycle race over the Ponte Vecchio bridge. After crossing the enchanting historic city center, it climbs up into the hills of Florence in the direction of Fiesole and Mugello. The finish is on the “wall” of Via Salviati, made famous by the 2013 World Cycling Championships: 134km of exacting climbs, exhilarating descents, and incredible scenery. The Medio Fondo (95km) follows a very similar route, but shorter and with an altitude gain of “just” 1100m, against the 2000m of the Gran Fondo.

Your base will be downtown Florence the ideal place to enjoy all the emotions during this 4 days – 3 nights GF Florence Firenze tour. You also enjoy the Tuscan countryside which is perfect for cycling when you are out of the chaotic beauty of Florence. Don’t forget to visit the Florence Bike Festival Expo which will take place in the heart of Le Cascine Park, the nerve center of the Gran Fondo Florence-Firenze. Challenging climbs and long downhill runs make Tuscany a cyclist paradise.
