Full description

Have you ever thought of visiting Florence from an unusual perspective? A different way to give new life to things and places you already know or to discover them for the first time from a very original point of view: a panoramic rafting tour in the heart of the Tuscan capital, passing by Ponte Vecchio and its other wonders.

A perfect mix of sport, tourism and culture, this activity will please everyone, entertaining the most adventurous and satisfying the desire for knowledge of the most curious. And for those in search of the utmost suggestiveness, it will be possible to sail at night.

It doesn't matter whether you are a beginner or a water sports regular: you are here to spend a few hours with friends discovering one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Full speed ahead paddle in hand!

What we will do

We will meet at the meeting point in Florence. There we can get ready, deposit our belongings, and meet the guides who will accompany us during the experience. Then we will board the rubber dinghy and begin thepanoramic urban rafting excursion.

We will descend along the stretch of the Arno that runs through the historic centre of Florence, from San Niccolò to Santa Rosa. The river offers a truly unique perspective to admire the city and some of its most famous points of interest, such as Ponte Vecchio, the Vasari Corridor, the Uffizi, Ponte Santa Trìnita and many others.

Sitting on board the dinghy, we will be able to take magnificent photographs while the guides tell us anecdotes about the history of the city and the beautiful places we will pass through. Those looking for a bit of adrenaline will not be disappointed as we will make the fun descent of the Pescaia di San Niccolò, a slide in the middle of the river right in the heart of Florence.

The activity lasts 2 hours in total. The tour ends at the Pescaia di Santa Rosa, on the Lungomare Soderini. From there we will be free and our belongings will be handed over to us by a member of staff who will be waiting for us at the arrival point.

This activity is at an easy level and suitable for everyone from 4 years upwards.
