See Florence from a whole new perspective, with a relaxing and leisurely cruise down the Arno River. After meeting your guide at our office, we will take a walking tour through the historic city centre, passing along the Piazza Signoria, and the Uffizi Gallery. See the Ponte Vecchio from the banks of the Arno as we make our way to the docks at the embarcadero. Here you will get on board the “barchetto”, one of only four original traditional wooden boats left in Florence. A true, traditional Florentine rower will steer you through the water with a long, sweeping oar. Our guide will tell you about the secrets and history of the Arno River as you stroll on its calm waters and admire the beautiful Palazzos that frame its ancient riverbed. See the Uffizi and the charming Ponte Vecchio from the water, and hear stories of the mysterious Vasari Corridor. You will also have the chance to pass under the Santa Trinita Bridge and the amazing Palazzo Corsini. Enjoy a refreshing glass of Prosecco wine aboard, to celebrate your romantic evening in Florence! See and experience a new side of this special city from the comfort of a traditional, gondola-style boat.
