This is a nice, quiet river in the city of Florence. A river has quite an impact on any city, and so it is here too. It makes the city a little bit lovelier than it is. And Florence is a stunning city. The Arno...More

It was a beautiful day when we visited and the river just looked so lovely. It has a large volume of water.

This river flows through Florence. It can best be seen from the bridges that cross it in the central area especially the Ponte Vecchio. Views from other bridges are also excellent not only for the river but to see the other bridges from another perspective...More
