But still, having a bike would be a fantastic way to enjoy the beautiful palaces, churches, Piazzas, Lungarni (the streets along the river Arno are called Lungarni)...
The best way is to rent a bike for a couple of hours or more in case you wish to go also to the hills (for example Piazzale Michelangelo and San Miniato al Monte Church).
Where? I wish to suggest you a couple of places:
Bici In Firenze is a service organized by the Comune di Firenze (city hall of Florence) and it is located in front of Santa Maria Novella train station or in Piazza Ghiberti.
The other one is Florence By Bike, located in Via San Zanobi

I could come to your Hotel downtown and pick you up, or we could meet somewhere - we will go to rent the bikes together and we will start a fantastic tour through the medieval streets of Florence, for the most part pedestrian.
We can lock our bikes and visit the inside of Santa Trinita Church, or Orsanmichele, or wherever you want, I'm open to discuss the itinerary with you.

On a bike tour with me we will certainly see:
Cathedral Square and Brunelleschi's Dome
Santa Maria Novella Square
Santa Croce Square
The nice weather and the Tuscan sun are coming, book a bike tour with Elaiza :)
