Come aboard this “Florentine Gondola”
for a romantic and unique cruise on
the Arno River and an “aperitevos”
right before dinner!

See Florence from a totally different perspective.
A leisurely cruise down the River Arno is a great way to see Florence.

You will meet your guide at our office and will enjoy a nice introduction tour as you walk through Piazza Signoria and under the Uffizi Gallery, seeing the Pontevecchio (old bridge) from the bank, all the way through to the “embarcadero”.

You will then get on board the “barchetto”, 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 to unveil the secrets of the Arno river as you stroll on its calm waters and discover its history and the beautiful Palazzos that frame its ancient riverbed.
You will pass in front of the Uffizi gallery, the beautiful caretaker of many artistic historical treasures, pass under the unique Pontevecchio bridge and you will find out more about the mysterious Vasari Corridor. You will also have the chance to discover the Santa Trinita Bridge and the amazing Palazzo Corsini.

You will then enjoy a refreshing “aperitevos” with a glass of cool Prosecco wine, to celebrate your romantic evening in Florence!

The commentary is informative but very entertaining and may include a few colourful local stories. The tour is safe and very enjoyable.
See and experience the splendour of this special city from the relaxed comfort of an old,
gondola style, traditional boat.
