Fun experience riding on ebikes in the evening around town. We stopped at several spots where Paolo spoke about the history of the area. It got dark quickly so it wasn’t great for photos but I enjoyed the information. The time at Cantini Foresi was very nice with wine and food. Getting a peek at their ancient wine cellar was a special treat.... AirBnB all Reviews

This was a truly unique experience! The timing of the ebike adventure was great and the information was relevant and as advertised. The food and wine was fabulous, the guiding was well done and the friends we made during the biking and dinner are still on our radar. This adventure should not be missed.... AirBnB all Reviews

Where do I start? The experience was an evening eBike ride around the cobblestone streets of the ancient walled city of Orvieto and it was to include a little wine and a snack. What actually occurred was so much more that we are still talking about how magical the evening was! First and foremost, the town is lovely. The bikes were terrific (not going to lie, the electric portion of our transportation was invaluable) and the stops around the walls of the city (along with places of interest within the city itself) were perfectly measured, but the pièce de ré·sis·tance was the after-tour "snack" at the exquisitely-situated Cantina Foresi on the Piazza del Duomo. Alessandro and his mother could not have been more amazing hosts! Paolo led us down into the wine cellar beneath the restaurant where we saw barrels and bottles that were decades old in a space that was centuries older. The current owner is the grandson of the cafe's founder, which has been in this space since 1953 and the cellar dates back some 700 years! Once seated in the Piazza out front of the cafe, Alessandro's momma (whose name, unfortunately, I do not remember, but she seemed perfectly content being called momma) kept the food courses coming (perfectly matched by all of the wine pairings that Alessandro offered) well past 10PM when we had the square to ourselves. BTW, can I mention that I have become a big fan of the Orvieto Classico, a dry white wine grown and bottled locally? We shared the experience with a wonderful family from Colorado, who agreed that the entire evening could NOT have been any better. Paolo, who owns a number of eBike experiences throughout Italy has done a terrific job of putting together this special Orvieto tour. I cannot recommend it highly enough.... AirBnB all Reviews

The E-Bike tour of Orvieto with Paolo was FABULOUS. Bikes were great,Paolo's knowledge and tour of Orvieto was relevant and interesting. We got a great overview of this beautiful walled city and its history. To finish of the night we experienced a visit to an ancient wine cellar in the restaurant Paolo took us for dinner to finish of the night.The food and wine were all local and cooked by the owner's mother.A five star experience!! One not to be missed.... AirBnB all Reviews

Paolo is very knowledgeable about the history of this area, and biking from point to point was so fun! We started in daylight and finished in the dark (we had lights on the bikes), and it was great to see the city from both perspectives. The tasting-dinner and wine that followed (and the visit to the amazing wine cellar!) also were highlights. You might want a little backpack for personal items and water, as there isn't a way to secure a purse to the back of the bike. But he kindly carried my purse in his backpack, so it worked out just fine. He offers other bike tours, which i'd like to try as well. This was a good value and a fun experience....
