The Arno River serves as a boundary between the historic center and the south side of the city, known as the Oltrano. It was nice to walk along the bank of the river at different times of the day and see the buildings reflected on...More
The river Arno divides the city of Florence in two parts. There are several bridges that cross it, among which the famous Ponte Vecchio. The roads near the river are called Lungarno each with a different name. This time I was visiting Florence by myself,...More
Just a short walk from the train station, the River Arno is a peaceful place for walks, with many interesting bridges to discover. Wish there was more literature around the bridges to tell you about the history of the river and the flood in 1966.

We took a late afternoon river cruise down the Arno River June 2018. The late cruise was supposed to include a glass of prosecco and “appetizers.” The cruise was pleasant and our guide was knowledgeable of the surroundings. The extra money we paid for this...More
The park area to the west of the city would provide you with walks along the river. Other pavements running through the city are very narrow and difficult to walk along especially with roads right next to you.
