Private Arno river cruise on Florentine Gondola

Cruise down the romantic River Arno on your private "Florentine Gondola"


  • English-speaking licensed guide
  • Private Florentine Gondola style boat ride on the Arno River
  • Walking tour of the city center
  • Toast with wine on board and snack (Soft drinks available on tours with participants under 18 y.o)


Before sunset, guests enjoy a leisurely cruise down the river Arno. Pass by the Uffizi Galleries, admire the  Ponte Vecchio from the water and find out more about the mysterious Vasari Corridor. On the tour we  will also discover the story of the Ponte Santa Trinita and the stunning Palazzo Corsini. The commentary  is informative and includes colorful local stories. Your private boat is conducted by a “renaiolo”—a traditional Florentine rower. You will meet a private guide on the heart of Florence that will accompany you to the dock, on the way, a walking tour around the center is also included so you can feel more acquaintance to the city before your boat ride. This experience lasts about 2 hours (approx 40-50 min. of Mini Cruise in Florentine style Gondola and approx 70 min. walking tour around the city center). And to make this experience even more special, we will celebrate this amazing moment with a delicious wine toast on the boat.
