See Florence from the water on a "Florentine Gondola"! This guided, leisurely boat ride down the Arno River lets you see and learn about Florence as you haven't before.
The boat or “barchetto” is one of the only 4 original traditional wooden boats left in Florence, conducted by a “barcaiolo”, a true Florentine tradition holder that will guide you with his long-reaching sweeping-oar. No noisy engines, only the charm of tradition and the voice of your expert guide.
Pass by the Uffizi gallery, admire the unique Ponte Vecchio bridge and learn about the mysterious Vasari Corridor, and see the Santa Trinita bridge and the amazing Palazzo Corsini. Then enjoy a glass of cool wine to finish off this wonderful evening tour.
Meeting point will be at a central location. Details will be provided in final documents.
