Enjoy your Hen weekend in Rome with some extra fun in the water of Tiber river!
The rafting descent on the Tiber takes place entirely within the urban area of Rome.
The initial briefing held by expert guides will provide all the information required to carry out the activity safely.
The guides will describe which behavior it is best to have when paddling, the commands and the technique of paddling, the equipment and what to do in case of a fall in water.
Boarding will happen at the base of the very ancient Ponte Milvio, on the right bank.
A few moments to familiarize with the equipment, and then off you go rafting downstream the Tiber river!
The descent starts quietly, gliding on the water away from the traffic and noise of the city. Ancient and modern bridges will follow one after the other and all of a sudden, after a curve, here is the majestic St. Angelo Castle and the imposing Dome of St. Peter in the background! Another few hundred meters and you’ll reach the Tiber Island.
While the ferry takes the right branch and stops shortly after Ponte Garibaldi, we take the left branch and face the rapids below Ponte Garibaldi and those under Ponte Fabricio, another ancient Roman bridge!
Finally the striking passage under the single arch of Ponte Rotto leads us to the landing at the Port of Ripa Grande, on the right bank. The total duration of the route is about 2.5 hours.
A little snack is offered at the end of the activity!
