A trip of a lifetime

Florence is one of the most fantastic Cities of Italy.  The heart of Tuscany on the Arno River, Florence is often considered the birthplace of the italian Renaissance.  Rowing through the heart of the city just under the Ponte Vecchio.  The Ponte Vecchio is the oldest and most famous bridge in Florence.  It is the oldest and most famous bridge in Florence.  The athletes will stay at a youth hostel near the Arno river and row once or twice a day at the  Canottieri Fierenze.  Coaching will be conducted by two Olympians, Francesco Fossi and Claudia Belderbos who are going to lead and coordinate the trip from Europe.   It is always amazing to be taught by olympians and to be also introduced to their hometown makes it an even more special and personalized trip.  The  Canottieri Fierenze is a very exclusive club allowing entry only to a very exclusive group.
