Step back in time and explore Florence from a completely different perspective on this traditional boat trip down the Arno River. Float under the historic Ponte Vecchio bridge like a traveler from the past in the seat of an authentic barchetto, Florence's answer to a Venetian gondola.

Meet in central Florence and enjoy a half-hour walking tour with a local historian guide. Walk through the charming Piazza Signoria and past the breathtaking Uffizi Gallery before reaching the boarding point at the river's edge.

Gently hop aboard one of these floating crafts, 1 of the 4 original barchetto types, and explore Florence from the Arno River. Relax and enjoy the views as your knowledgeable guide propels the boat over the shallow river bottom with a long wooden oar.

Escape the city's crowds and noise, but not its majestic beauty or historic monuments on this leisurely and unforgettable boat tour of Florence.
