The rafting descent on the Tiber takes place entirely within the urban area of Rome.
The meeting point is at the large Porta del Popolo, close to the square of the same name and the Flaminio metro stop. A very short walk takes us to boarding, where we will find the equipment ready for our tour!
The initial briefing held by expert guides will provide all the information necessary to carry out the activity safely: the behavior to be kept in the boat, the commands, the paddling technique, the equipment and the behavior to be followed in the event of a fall in water. Further answers will then also be provided directly on the boat.
The descent to the river is peaceful and very relaxing, gliding on the water away from the traffic and noise of the city. Ancient and modern bridges following 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 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 hours. We are in the heart of Rome!
