We will then head over to the ancient Ponte Vecchio, crossing to the riverbank, where we will make our way to our awaiting traditional wooden boats for a sunset cruise along the Arno River and later docking at one of the ancient riverbanks to enjoy our customized aperitivo.

The Renaissance city of Florence

The glow of Renaissance hasn't lost its lustre in Florence. The grand Palazzo Vecchio overlooking the L-shaped Piazza della Signoria is as an outdoor gallery with collections of impressive Renaissance sculptures. Just to name a few of the masterpieces is the "Fountain of Neptune" or the "Biancone". The Palazzo Vecchio stands grander under the lit up scones while the city's Cathedral dominates Florence skyline during the night. The romantic view of the Ponte Vecchio over the River Arno makes its striking presence as the sunset ray sets upon its cobbled stoned arches. And not forgetting the Uffizi Gallery, reputed to be is one of the finest museums in the world, founded by the Medici family. Its treasures draw hundreds of thousands visitors every year.

Sunset Cruise on the Arno River

Get aboard on one of the few remaining traditional wooden "barchetto" conducted by a "barcaiolo", a true Florentine experience who will guide the boat with his long-reaching pole. 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 cruise along the calm waters, passing under the magnificent Florentine bridges and discover the history of the beautiful Palazzos that frame its ancient riverbed.

Aperitivo time 

After this romantic boat ride, an aperitivo is served, letting you enjoy the whole sunset from one of the most exclusive places on the riverbanks, as you savour a cool Prosecco wine. In addition, as part of our Italian hospitality, you will be presented a Florence City GuideBook with local insights of Florence to make your stay in Tuscany even more memorable.
