Take time to discover Florence slowly… with us.
No rush, just the pleasure of relaxing and watching the city as you ride along in a Florentine gondola* on the river.
Take the chance to discover Florence in a unique way with Guided Florence Tours. The tour begins with a short introduction of the city – while you are headed to the boarding area – and then continues floating along the Arno, passing under Ponte Vecchio with the crowd above you.
You will see the people, but you will no longer hear them, you will only hear the gentle sound of the water, of the rowers’ oars next to you and the voice of your guide describing the monuments and treasures which will unfold in front of your eyes.
*The Florentine gondolas are narrow and long boats, that move carefully through the water. They are guided by rowers with long poles and recall the tradition of the Medieval “Renaioli”. The Renaioli used these boats to collect sand from the river that was used to build the city of Florence.
The tour lasts about two hours and runs from April until September; the tour may be cancelled due to bad weather. Refunds will be made in this case.
