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.
