Meet your guide and take a quick walk through the city center, then 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 right before sunset, when Florence is flooded by the most magic light.
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 an aperitivo with a glass of cool wine to finish off this wonderful evening tour and admire the sunset from one of the most exclusive places on the riverbanks.
Meeting point will be at a central location. Details will be provided in final documents.
