Florence: Rafting Trip on the River Arno

4. Florence: Rafting Trip on the River Arno

Who said that art cities are boring? With our one-of-a-kind tour, you can experience the incredible artistic heritage of Florence in an active and, above all, adventurous way, from start to finish! On board of our rafting boats, guided by qualified personnel and in complete safety. The tour will start from the eastern end of the city stretch of the Arno river immediately with a strong emotion: the small waterfall of Pescaia di San Niccolò (river level permitting). The journey on the Arno will then continue westwards through the historic center: visiting the city from another point of view, fluvial and silent, compared to the crowding and confusion of the city streets, is a unique experience that everyone can try: from a couple of young friends, to families, to seniors; whether you want to paddle or let yourself be lulled by the current of the Arno, the view of the palaces and churches that overlook the Arno, as well as that of the bridges that we will meet, is remarkable: from the Museum dedicated to Galileo Galilei, to the Uffizi, Ponte Vecchio to S. Trinita, and then Palazzo Spini Feroni, Palazzo Corsini, the Church of S. Frediano in Cestello and much more...

At 38 degrees, we decided to go on the golf cart tour so that we could see as much as possible in a relaxed manner. And so it was. Shaded and with a headwind, we had an extensive ride through the city, got out in between and took photos, explanations in German via an audio guide. The English-speaking local driver was also very friendly and gave additional explanations. We also drove through alleys that would not have been accessible with a sightseeing bus. Top.

We liked it very much, especially when there is little time and it is very hot. We received a lot of information, saw the main sights and the guide was very friendly and funny. We can only recommend.

Educational and entertaining. The driver/guide was highly informed and very friendly. The highlight was viewing the city from the higher hills.

Great guide Aldo, funny without trying, gave us a great tour of the city. Really enjoyed it.

Saw so much of Florence. I learned a lot and I recommend it highly
