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.

Admire Florence from a different point of view

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 the 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.

A unique experience to visit Florence and the Arno river

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.

Taste a refreshing "aperitivo" to complete your experience

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", with a glass of Cool Wine, a truly 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.

Florence Boat Tour

This was a lovely way to spend an evening! I took the boat ride at about 6:30 pm, in September it was around sunset, and it was really beautiful. The weather was perfect so that really did help. Our guide (I forgot his name, sadly) was knowledgeable, but I'm not sure how well everyone could hear him. I was sitting by him so it was fine for me, but he didn't have a microphone and he wasn't super loud. I did notice the previous guide was using a microphone. Otherwise, it was really enjoyable, he told us about the buildings and bridges along the way, plus some history of Florence. About half way he opened the prosecco, there was plenty to go around and you could have a second cup if you liked. It was a different way to see Florence and to get away from the crowds on the bridges, I would definitely recommend it. It wasn't too long, a little over an hour, so it's easy to fit in during site seeing.
