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

Well, nothing special about this river despite it's the second most important in central Italy. You can also find it in Pisa. You can't miss it as you will see it from Ponte Vecchio.

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 walked along here several time and each time was just as relaxing as the last one. It made for a nice and quiet stroll away from the mass of tourists. If you are looking for some peace and quiet a walk along the river...More

Take an Arno river cruise, for an hour or so and let the tour guide tell you all about the river, and its once industrious past. Lots to learn, and it won't be crowded like several other Florence attractions! If you are especially lucky, they...More

We made our way walking up the Arno River and there weren’t as many people as there were in the piazzas which is a good thing as it was quite crowded there. You could see Ponte Vecchio from there and it is beautiful. You shouldn’t...More

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.
