BOAT TOUR & FLORENCE LANDSCAPES
Florence seen from a different perspective
Minivan car service pick up and a group tour: “Boat trip on the river Arno”. Meet your guide and discover Florence from a different perspective. Leave the crowds behind and feel the gentle breeze of the Arno River. Don’t just visit the world-famous Ponte Vecchio: float under it! The boats are moved and steered by a long pole that is pushed against the shallow sandy bottom of the river; they have an important historical significance dating back to Medieval times. Sit back and relax as you float by the world’s most breathtaking monuments.
At the end of an active day, this relaxing view of Florence is especially memorable.
Your day will continue with a panoramic tour. A drive along the hills that cradle the city is a must. Take in the breathtaking beauty of what is known worldwide as the capital of Renaissance from the lofty heights of Piazzale Michelangelo, where the red cotto roofs seem within your reach. Enjoy the city center from this extraordinary perspective.
The driver will leave you at roughly 8 pm in the city center for an apericena (wine or cocktail, buffet with appetizers) in a location overlooking the amazing Duomo.
