There is a funny way to discover Tuscany from a different point of view: it's rafting! Rafting is an outdoor activity that requires an inflatable raft to navigate on a river with white water or different degrees of rough water. There is an International Scale of River Difficulty with six grades of difficulty in white water rafting. They range from simple to very dangerous and potential death or serious injuries.
Rafting is a quite exciting and adventurous sport, for this reason there are some rules to be observed and some equipment to be used to be safe. Rafting with experienced guides is the safest way to avoid problems and rafting trips often begin with safety presentations to educate customers about problems that may arise. Rafting equipment includes a bathing suit and something you don't mind getting wet. You might want to consider wearing a wet suit to keep your body warm and a pair of water shoes is also helpful and always wears a helmet.
