Get a unique view of Florence at the most romantic time of day

Gaze at Florence’s churches, domes and towers from a unique viewpoint at the most romantic time of day: sunset. As the sun sets, it will see all of those monuments basking in golden blow, even further enhanced from the calm waters of the River Arno. Pick out the rosy, orange and golden hues of the rippling water as you pass palazzi and bridges on this once-in-a-lifetime tour of Florence. 

Ride one of just four traditional Florentine gondolas

Meet your guide who will take you to a barchetto, a traditional Florentine wooden boat of which there are only four originals left in the city. The true tradition holder, your barcaiolo, will guide you down the river with his long pole. There are no noisy engines here, just the voice of your expert guide who will unveil the secrets of the Arno River.

Pass the city’s attractions before a chilled glass of wine

You’ll pass by the Uffizi gallery, under the Ponte Vecchio, and learn more about the mysterious Vasari Corridor. You’ll also have the chance to discover the Santa Trinita Bridge and the Palazzo Corsini. As the tour comes to a close, you’ll enjoy a chilled glass of wine to celebrate your romantic stay in Florence - an unforgettable and romantic evening in the Cradle of the Renaissance.
