Unforgettable emotions

The view of Florence from the Arno is something truly magical, especially at dusk, when the sky turns pink and monuments are reflected on the water in fiery hues. A romantic tour to share with your loved one, but not only, because it will also lead to the discovery of the most famous and significant places of the city, seen from a really special perspective.

The traditional boats in Florence are called barchetti and are conducted by a Barcaiolo, in the best Florentine tradition.

The guide will reveal the secrets of the Arno and the history of the extraordinary palaces which run along the river. The tour will pass in front of the Uffizi Gallery, which houses the most precious treasures of Renaissance art, under the Ponte Vecchio and the Vasari Corridor and it will go on to the Ponte Santa Trinita and Palazzo Corsini.

During the boat tour you will enjoy a cool drink made with sparkling wine (Italian Prosecco) to celebrate this unique occasion. Meanwhile, the guide will give you historical information, but also funny and curious anecdotes about the city, the river that runs through it and its palaces.
