Detailed Description

With the glittering lights of Florence illuminating around you, your first evening will include a riverboat tour along the Arno river. It is here that you will receive an overview of the city’s major sights, including the Ponte Vecchio and the role the Arno played in supplying Florence with transportation and trade. Pedals will replace oars as the main mode of propulsion as you embark on a tour of the city by bicycle. The city center enjoys the status of being a UNESCO World Heritage Site, so there will be much to see here.

Before your departure, you will visit the famous Duomo, which towers over the rest of the city, as well as the numerous galleries and museums that display world-class Renaissance art. Your tour will be capped on the final day by an excursion beyond the city limits. For this experience, you will board a hot air balloon and gently ascend into the skies that overlook Tuscany. From this perch, you will be able to ponder the special significance of this region and share some unforgettable memories with your partner.

Along with scheduled activities and tours, you and your partner will have ample time to explore the city at your own pace. Want to visit a shop where an artisan is painstakingly restoring a priceless antique? Head on in. If you run into an enticing aroma as emerges from a hole-in-the-wall cafe? Check it out. It is often these spontaneous encounters that yield the best memories, and on this tour, you will find an abundance of these special moments.
