¡Navegue por el río Arno y bajo el increíble Ponte Vecchio, el famoso puente de Florencia, en un barchetto, un pequeño barco tradicional! Su barchetto, la respuesta de Florencia a la góndola veneciana, es uno de los únicos 4 originales que siguen activos en Florencia. Saboree esta experiencia única con una copa de Prosecco fría (vino espumoso italiano) mientras pasa por hermosas atracciones de Florencia como el palacio Corsini y el puente de Santa Trinidad.
The river was beautiful and we did learn some history about the Barchettos. Our guide Mario was fun, but didn't give us any information at all about the sites as we walked from the meeting site to the River other reviews said this was a great part of this tour. He also had to ask the Italian speaking only rower to give us information about the river and sites along the river. We went in July at the last tour of the day, but did not get to see the sunset as it sets so late in July. However the ride was relaxing and beautiful and the Prosecco and crackers afterwards overlooking the river was enjoyable. Overall I would recommend!
This is a belated review of our Florence River Cruise - just forgot to write it up earlier. Since the river cruise is still the same, I can add to the positive comments preceding mine. Our disappointment was that the cruise was a short hour, and about the same to get to and from the boat launch. Nonetheless, a ride on the Arno River is another memorable way to see the historic city of Florence, enjoyed with a glass of wine on board!
Tour was amazing. Really knowledgeable guide and it was made even better by the group of people I did the tour with. The glass of prosecco was a nice touch and seeing the sun set over the water was stunning. As something different to do it was lovely.
