With paddle strokes, on traditional boats that refer to the image of a dragon, the protagonists of the race will light up the enthusiasm of all the people present in a scenario of great beauty, for a day to remember during your stay in Florence.

Since then, every 4 years, the event comes back to life on the waters of the world bringing hope, sport, outdoor life and lots of fun. On the banks of the Arno river and the amazing Parco delle Cascine the six days of the Dragon Boat entertain visitors with events, banquets and workshops.
