You can walk, run, take a bus, cycle, go on a segway or, even, take to the Arno River. Tours of an Italian city by water might bring Venice to mind but it is also a viable way to see Florence by cycling along the Arno. How can one cycle the Arno, you might ask?

The tours depart at either 8am or 7pm and last for a duration of two hours. An informative, friendly and professional guide will take only small groups, ensuring that you’re well cared for and get a personalised experience.

Furthermore, you’ll get to spend time in the great outdoors, take in swathes of the city and get a little exercise in while you’re at it; all while having a fun and memorable experience.
Everything will be provided, you merely have to turn up and be dressed for the weather. The bicycles are standard mountain-bikes which have been transformed into proper water-bikes and, of course, you need to be able to ride one and be comfortable being on water. The minimum age is 10 years and the tour is not recommended for people with back problems, heart complaints, serious medical conditions or pregnant women. However, the tour is available to people from lots of different countries as it is offered in a variety of languages.
