Tours / Florence from the river Arno on the small boat of the sand diggers

See the city of Florence from a unique and enchanting perspective: admired from the water!

A touching upside-down perspective of the Old Bridge area from the water table of the Arno river that reflects the beauty and splendor of the whole area!
A tour done in such an original and fascinating way... The tour, led between two waterfalls in the distributary of the river where you will be the only one sailing, will pass under the arches of the bridge that is the most "walked in the world".

The sailing tour on the river Arno in Florence is possible from May till September, on-board of the ships of the Renaioli (traditional sand diggers) and the traditional rowers of the city of Lily. The boats are pushed by the Renaolis, using the sticks or rods without using the oars.

The tour starts at landing point Lungarno Diaz, passing under the Uffizi and the Vasari Corridor, shortly afterwards under the Old Bridge in the densest part of the Arno history.

A tour guide specialized in this course of the Arno river provides you with a unique oppurtunity for discovery- unexpected enrichments and stories related to the river.

Prosecco and appetizers will be served on the Arno river at sunset.

Feeling the breeze touching your face, swayed by the current of the Arno river, while accompanied by an experienced boat captain leading your bark, you will be ferried in the heart of the city Art of the Florence until the violet hour that turns to desire.
