Description

Roaming the town and longing for a different outlook? Hoping there was some special tour off-the-beaten-path that could provide a unique perspective on the city? Or have you simply been gazing at the vistas from the bridge and wishing you could take a Florence boat ride? Join us for an unforgettable sunset Florence boat ride, and savor the best of this beautiful city at sunset, the most evocative and romantic time of the day!

Some elderly locals still recall the song that goes "on the silvery Arno river the stars look at themselves, reflecting as in a mirror"… and indeed there is no better way to enjoy Florence’s magical atmosphere, and become part of it, than cruising the Arno river.

Especially when the sun starts to set, enhancing the palaces, bridges and rippling water with its rosy, orange and golden hues. Our sunset Florence boat ride offers an unprecedented privilege: gazing at churches, cupolas and towers from an unusual viewpoint, and partaking in the local tradition. Yes, because the boat we use is an authentic period wooden "barchetto", Florence's version of a gondola steered with a long pole, and the route we follow is designed to enable you to capture the quintessence of Florence.
During the cruise, your guide will tell you about the city’s eventful history and legends, and illustrate the features and peculiarities of the palaces and bridges you admire, including the Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi Gallery, Palazzo Corsini and the Santa Trinita Bridge.

Finally, crown your unforgettable Florence boat ride enjoying an iconic Italian "aperitivo": a glass of delicious chilled wine, served on board. Evocative, lyrical, and romantic, our semi-private sunset Florence boat ride is the most genuinely Florentine experience ever.
