FLORENCE FROM THE ARNO RIVER
After a hectic day visiting the city, you may want to view Florence from a different and unusual perspective: a mini-cruise over the river Arno in one of the old restored boats by the “renaioli.” For centuries these men earned a living by dredging the sand of the river bed (the “rena”), which was then used to build the beautiful palaces, churches, and monuments of the city.
These unique, flatboats were restored and are available to whoever wants to unwind and have a romantic experience, maybe at sunset, when Florence glows of romantic light.
