Want to experience Florence in a different way ? Would you like to surprise your partner during your trip to Florence? Choose our private boat tour on the river Arno and you will see the city from a completely different point of view! This is the most romantic and suggestive tour that you can take in Florence from April to September. It has been so far the most requested guided tour to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries and marriage proposals accompanied by a Prosecco toast on board a small boat on the river Arno at sunset.
We will go on board the ancient boats of the “Renaioli” . These were men who, using these wooden boats, used to take tons of sand from the river bed to make cement. It is an ancient trade that ended after World War II and no longer exists, but some of those hundred year old boats have been restored and are used to give you a suggestive experience on the river.
We will observe the city from a different and privileged point of view, admiring the rich Renaissance palaces along the Arno, home of ancient families. The private boat tour will pass next to the Uffizi Gallery, we will see the Vasari’s Corridor, a long walkway built by the Medicis to move through the city avoiding the crowds. We will observe how this private and safe walkway stretches along the river Arno before reaching the top of Ponte Vecchio, the oldest bridge of Florence, to continue to the southern district of the city. While punting on the Arno you will hear how World War II affected the city and how the Santa Trinita Bridge had to be rebuilt after the war as well as all the other bridges of Florence with the exception of Ponte Vecchio.
At the end of your private boat tour on the river Arno you will have the chance to conclude this romantic experience with a glass of wine on a panoramic terrace watching the city at night or you can decide to finish with an aperitif in one of the coolest bars of Florence like locals do!
