Further information

In this enchanting nighttime excursion, you'll have the opportunity to navigate along the banks of the Arno River, immersing yourself in the magical atmosphere that only moonlight can provide. To make this experience even more special, we will be accompanied by an expert astronomer who will guide us through the wonders of the starry sky, revealing all the secrets and fascinating facts about the full moon.

We will start from the picturesque Ponte Buriano, a place that has fascinated even Leonardo da Vinci and has been immortalized in his famous work, "Mona Lisa." The silent navigation along the densely wooded riverbanks will lead us through hidden nooks and small waterfalls, offering us a captivating natural spectacle.

The nature reserve along the course of the Arno River extends for about 7 km, offering a landscape characterized by gentle hills, rocky walls, oak forests, and a variety of flora and fauna. During the excursion, we will admire the nighttime beauty of this area and seize the opportunity to observe the wildlife that approaches the water during the evening hours.

However, please note that the outing will depend on favorable weather conditions and the guide's decision to proceed or not. In the event of a cancellation due to safety reasons, a full refund will be provided or an alternative date for the excursion can be arranged.

Some useful tips to participate in the event:

  • Wear suitable footwear that can get wet, and bring a change of clothes and a towel.
  • Participants under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult and provide a liability waiver, which can be downloaded from the website.
