We have created the most pleasant and unusual way to discover Florence. Get on board this veritable "Florentine Gondola" and start an unforgettable experience in Florence.
See the city from a different perspective and enjoy a romantic and touching tour, letting you deeply immerse into the charm of Florence. A cruise on the Arno River, passing along some of the most amazing attractions of Florence, under bridges and through old neighborhood, is truly outstanding.
The start of the boat tour of Florence will be on land, meeting the guide and walking over Ponte Vecchio to the "embarcadero", where the "barchetto" typical boats leave.
There are only four of these traditional wooden boats left in Florence and you will have the chance for a charming tour on the Arno River. The authentic "barcaiolo" will steer the boat with his long pole, uncovering an unusual but beautiful side of Florence.
Our expert guide will show you the most enticing attractions of Florence along the banks of the river, old palaces and mansions, the front of the Uffizi Gallery and under the Ponte Vecchio. You will learn fascinating things about the history and architecture of Florence, peacefully floating on the river.
The unique boat tour of Florence will also include other treasures of the city, like the Santa Trinita Bridge, Palazzo Corsini and even more.
You will also be treated to a nice Italian "aperitivo", a light snack with a glass of Prosecco wine, a true romantic experience in Florence. It is the perfect way to explore a different side of the city, learning more and enjoying a calming and relaxing activity in Florence.
If you want to explore the surroundings of Florence in an ecological and relaxing way, we recommend the Bike Tour of Tuscany from Florence or the Horseback Riding Tour in Tuscany countryside.
Instead, if you are a motorcycle lover, we recommend the Vespa Tour of Chianti!
