In the 2nd part of the ride we'll climb the Piazzale Michelangelo hill on the lightest side, to enjoy the best view of the city.
Finally we'll dive again to the city ending the ride with a gelato in one of my favourite ice-cream shop. I'll be happy to answer any question about the city, as I'm born and bread in Florence, and lived here all my life
