Description

There's a quaint old Italian song that goes "on the silvery Arno river the stars look at themselves, reflecting as in a mirror"… Seeking a different perspective on Florence, something unique away from the beaten tourist-path? Longing to really feel the town, and be part of the magical atmosphere? Enjoy the subtle rosy hues that enhance the city's colors at sunset, the most poetic time of the day in Florence.

Florence boat ride: experience the rare privilege of admiring the palaces, churches and towers in full leisure, from the unusual viewpoint offered by the gentle waters of the Arno river and become part of the local tradition cruising aboard an ancient local "barchetto", Florence's version of a Gondola. Flowing through the city, and bedecked by a variety of lovely bridges, the Arno river is a vital part of Florence's history and heritage, and one of its most picturesque features. Its banks are lined by splendid palaces with facades that reflect the city's innate style and elegance. Our carefully designed Small-Group Sunset Cruise allows you to capture the quintessence of Florence: the ancient craft will carry you along the Arno river at sunset to enjoy a soft-toned visit during which you can toast Florence with a delicious glass of chilled wine.  Meet your guide and enjoy a brief walk through airy Piazza della Signoria, and under the large windows of the Uffizi Gallery, to reach the banks of the river to the boarding point of the "barchetto": entirely made of wood, this is one of the 4 original ones still existing! Hop aboard, the local "barcaiolo" will steer it silently over the water using a long wooden pole, and your guide will recount colorful local anecdotes, tell you about the Arno river's secrets and explain the bridges, majestic palaces and slender towers you see on shore. Sit back and savor the ride admiring the Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi Gallery, Palazzo Corsini and gorgeous Santa Trinita Bridge. For a perfect crescendo end to your cruise relish a refreshing "aperitivo": a glass of chilled wine, in typical Italian style.

Romantic, mellow and filled with tradition, our Small-Group Sunset Gondola Tour is the most fascinating and authentic experience of all... it's a tour even locals fall in love with!
