Florence: Sunset Gondola Tour

5. Florence: Sunset Gondola Tour

The Arno river is the history of Florence. It was its first supply source, and initially divided the city before uniting it through its marvelous Middle Ages and Renaissance bridges.

This tour will let you discover this soul at the most picture-perfect moment of the day: aperitivo time.

Follow your guide from the bank, all the way through to the embarcadero (pier). Here you will climb aboard a barchetto, a Florentine gondola, one of the very few traditional wooden boats left in Florence. Your gondola will be conducted by an authentic barcaiolo, a Florentine boatman that will guide your boat with his long-reaching pole. There will be no noisy engines, only the charm of tradition and the voice of your expert guide to unveil the secrets of the Arno River. As you push through its calm waters, you will pass under the magnificent Florentine bridges and discover its history and the beautiful Palazzos that frame its ancient riverbed. Following your Gondola ride, you will enjoy a refreshing “aperitivo” with a glass of cool wine to celebrate your romantic stay in Florence.

The Uffizi gallery was wonderful with so many amazing works of art and priceless artifacts. It is really crowded but if you can just try to soak it in and not get to frazzled by the crowd, it is incredible.. I had wish I got an audio guide.
