Tour description

The River Arno is Florence's lifeblood, flowing through the city and nurturing it since its foundation. Spanned by such bridges as the famous Ponte Vecchio, the Arno divides Florence's traditional historic center from the artisan neighborhood of Oltrarno. But as much as it divides it unites, bringing Florentines and visitors together in reverential appreciation of its majestic natural beauty.

Today's River Arno perfectly reflects Florence's romantic, elegant, slow flowing soul. So there's no better way to experience the stunning capital of Tuscany than by taking a small-group VIP sunset boat tour. Your sunset boat tour will immerse you in the soul of Florence at the most picture-perfect moment of the day: at aperitivo time, right before dinner, right before sunset. Flooded with the most magical light, even Florence's cold stones seem soft and warm, with an enchanting yellow finish that distinguishes the city.

Wander through the mesmerising historic center of Florence

After meeting your guide at Piazza della Repubblica, enjoy a nice short walk through Piazza Signoria. Here you'll stand in the stretching shadows of the Palazzo Vecchio and Uffizi Gallery, coming face to face with a replica of Michelangelo's David who stands proudly and protectively at the head of the square. From the Uffizi it's just a minute's walk to the bank of the River Arno and the “embarcadero”.

Board your traditional boat and journey down the River Arno

Get aboard the “barchetto”, one of the very few traditional wooden boats left in Florence. Your own Florentine barcaiolo will punt you down the river. No noisy engines will disrupt your journey; no hustle and bustle from Florence's center. You will hear only the gentle lap of the water and and the calming voice of your guide as they pull the River Arno's secrets up from the deep.

Pass under Florence's medieval Ponte Vecchio as you discover the captivating history of the city's oldest bridge. Admire the beautiful palazzi that frame Florence's ancient riverbed as you meander down the Arno taking in the evening atmosphere. 

Finish your Florence sunset boat tour with a relaxing aperitivo

After this romantic boat ride, a slow aperitivo in a scenic location is the best way to completely wind down. Soak in the sight of the sun setting behind Florence's Renaissance palaces from one of the most exclusive places on the riverbanks as you savour some beloved Italian prosecco.
