Full description

Rome, as you have never seen it, awaits you for a rafting trip on the Tiber, right in the city centre. The historical and urban jewels of the city will be shown to you in their usual grandeur but from a new perspective.

From Scalo de Pinedo to Trastevere on the raft for afun and differentexperience. In between paddles, our expert guides will tell you stories and secrets of the city, and there will also be rapids to tackle, to give the route the right touch of adrenaline!

An activity to enjoy with friends or family, to visit the city in an original way or simply to share a moment of fun in good company!

What we will do

The meeting point will be at Porta del Popolo in Rome (near Piazza del Popolo, Flaminio metro station). There we will meet theinstructor and the rest of the group. A little chat to get to know each other and then a short walk will take us to the embarkation point on the Tiber. We will have a briefing on safety rules and how to behave on the dinghy. After that, we will put on our helmets and life jackets and be ready to go.

A few paddles to gain confidence and off we go to enjoy the rapids immediately downstream from the bridge. The descent will then continue quietly, gliding on the water away from the traffic and noise of the city. We will enter the heart of Rome, pass under ancient and modern bridges and suddenly, after a bend, the majestic Castel S. Angelo and the imposing'Cupolone' will appear in the background! A few hundred metres more and we arrive at theIsola Tiberina, where we will take the left branch of the Tiber to tackle the rapids under Ponte Garibaldi and those under Ponte Fabricio, another ancient Roman bridge.

Finally, the suggestive passage under the only remaining archway of Ponte Rotto will lead us to the landing at the Porto di Ripa Grande, on the right bank, in the well-known Trastevere district, where we will end the experience with a snack and a farewell drink.

The activity lasts about 2 hours in total.
