Kayak & Packrafting

PACKRAFTING PONTEVECCHIO
Florence from the river

The packraft is a very fun single-seater mini raft, easier and safer than a kayak. The excursion follows the Arno along the city, passing under the four main historical bridges of the Florence city center. The river is very quiet and is therefore ideal for those who want to take photographs and admire Florence’s beautiful architecture from a unique perspective. We will cover some of the major historical sites such as the National Library, Uffizi Gallery, Pontevecchio, Santa Trinita bridge with Ammannati’s sculptures, and much more! Paddling on your own mini raft, this guided experience let you arrive under the pictoresque arches of Pontevecchio, admiring the famed Vasari Corridor and the goldsmiths’ workshops from below.
