What you'll do

BIKE TOUR THROUGH THE SUNFLOWERS IN AUGUST! Enjoy a 15 kilometres bike tour around the Tuscan countryside, and discover the saffron's secrets immersed in the atmosphere of this family-owned farmhouse, just a few kilometres from Florence and into Mugello, a little slice of heaven. Relax after the bike ride and enjoy drinks with your tasting of local saffron-flavored products. After a short walk into the small village of Vicchio and around its beautiful lake, begin your ride into the countryside, away from traffic. Along the way you’ll meet a Romanesque Church, a Villa from the Medicean era, and see the home of Giotto, always surrounded by nature and the typical Tuscan landscape. Halfway through the ride, you’ll stop at a saffron farm. Take your time to sit immersed in the magic atmosphere of this family-owned farmhouse. Meet the local farm animals, see the bee hives and vineyard, and taste some delicious saffron-flavored products (honey, cheese, biscuits, beer, herbal tea), while the owners show you how to grow saffron. You can easily reach the meeting place by train from Firenze S.M.Novella station to Vicchio (about 50 min scenic journey through the countryside).

Simone

I am a professional guide licensed by Tuscan Region. Florence and Mugello are the places where I was born and bred and I’m deeply in love with this territory and all the people that shaped it into a unique place in the world. This feeling is the reason why I decided to found Mugellove and to unveil the most authentic aspect of these corners of heaven and let the travelers experience it through the eyes of a person who lives here every single day. I am passionate in photography, together we can take good photos of the tour to get gorgeous memories of your experience.
