Hop aboard, and the local "barcaiolo" will steer gently over the water using a long wooden pole while your guide entertains you with an account of Florence's eventful history full of colorful local anecdotes, telling you some of the secrets the river holds and explaining the bridges, majestic palaces and slender towers you see on shore. Sit back and enjoy the cruise as you ride beneath the Ponte Vecchio, and then admire it and the Uffizi Gallery, Palazzo Corsini and gorgeous Santa Trinita Bridge from mid-river.

For a perfect crescendo ending, there will be time to relish a refreshing, typical Italian "aperitivo": a glass of chilled wine. Our "Florentine Gondola Tour" is without doubt a wonderful way to enter into the splendor and traditions of Florence.
