- Admire Florence from a totally different perspective
- Unique cruise on a vintage ‘Florence Gondola
The experience was great! We had an awesome tour guide who shared about the history of Florence. A local's perspective was nice to have during our trip as you don't get it in a museum! Just a note: there are others on the boat so don't expect a private tour (it didn't bother us one bit...we enjoyed meeting a few other travelers).
Romance and a memorable sightseeing tour are on the cards with this very special Florence gift experience. You’ll step aboard a traditional ‘barchetta’, a wooden gondola-style boat, of which there are only four left in Florence, for a scenic cruise along the Arno River. The ‘barcaiolo’ will propel you gently along with his long-reaching oar, while a professional history guide illuminates the architecture and culture of this beautiful city.
You’ll begin with a short walking tour through the Piazza Signoria and under the Uffizi Gallery, seeing the famous Pontevecchio along the way, and then once you’re on the water, a vast number of magnificent buildings will be on display. See the Santa Trinita bridge, the stunning Palazzo Corsini and many more points of interest from a unique (and very stylish) vantage point. Plus - this relaxing boat journey ends in the best way possible, with a celebratory glass of prosecco. A thoroughly relaxed and enjoyable way to see the sights of Florence.
