Don’t just visit the world-famous Ponte Vecchio (Old Bridge); float under it! The boats are moved and steered by a long pole that is pushed against the shallow sandy bottom of the river; they have an important historical significance dating back to the Medieval times.

At the end of the boat tour a private minivan awaits you for a panoramic tour of the city that will end with a suggestive aperitivo “with view”, looking over the city and the Duomo.
