Beautiful
Jan 2020 • Solo
The Arno river adds so much flair to the town of Florence. It add a lovely backdrop for photos and a refresher from all the buildings. It breathes live and energy into the city and diverts away from the concrete jungle.

Nothing special
Jun 2019
The river itself is nothing special. You'll see it anyway if you're in Florence. But don't plan on thinking that this is a great an pretty thing. It's the buildings around it that are critical.

The main travel route of Renessaince Florence
Mar 2020
The river bisects Old Florence with New Florence (Pettit Palace) . It has flooded and created a large mess. Some of building showed the flood line and it was almost 4 ft deep in some areas. This has many bridges with the Vecchio Corridor along it, Porto Vecchio.

Lots of bridges
Feb 2020 • Couples
Saw lots of bridges spanning Arno river. The most iconic bridge is Ponte Vecchio. Lots of people were on the bridge for various reasons. Some were there to shop for jewellery, some were on the bridge for
the first time , some were were busy taking
photos, some were there to admire the nearby bridges. A most interesting spot of the river is where one could take a beautiful photo of the reflection of Uffizi on the waters. One can get a good view of the river and the many bridges across it from Michaelangelo's square.

Dec 2019
i had a chance to see this beautiful view in Florence when i went across Ponte Vecchio, as well as in Pisa as we were walking from Pisa Centrale to the Leaning Tower of Pisa. both places were equally beautiful. It was in the morning in Pisa, the colour scheme was breathtaking

Ancient flooding has been tamed
Sep 2019
This river has been a source of flooding throughout the centuries; however, it appears to have been tamed to no more threaten many of the Florentine art treasures. In the 16th century, even DaVinici attempted to control this famous historical river. Be sure to stroll along it's banks on the classic Italian streets.

THE WATER MONSTER
Apr 2019
The Arno flows in a generally east to west direction through Firenze dividing into a northern and southern side of town. It is only about 250 kilometers in length. Located throughout town are markers to indicate the height of floodwaters. The worst of the Arno floods occurred in 1966, damaging or destroying many artifacts within the city. There have been ongoing efforts to mitigate the damage due to floods of the Arno.

A nice place for pictures and chilling.
Aug 2019
The last time I was here it was busier than usual. Please be careful of pickpocketing and bag snatchers. One tourist lost his backpack and was very distraught. There are hotels, and nice restaurants in the vicinity. There’s also public transport if you want to explore Florence after a longwalk

The best thing of Florence
Mar 2019 • Couples
Keeping aside all the amazing History and monuments and cathedrals of Florence, the thing which made me fall in love with Florence was the Arno river . There isn't any need to take/book a tour. You can just take a couple of beers or your favourite wine and just relax on the river side with no problem at all. It's the most chilling place ever. Beautiful views and relaxed atmosphere. Choose your perfect spot and just spend a couple of hours with your partner/friends and it will be a delight for you. Don't miss the Arno River at any cost.

Where Dante saw Beatrice, immortalized in the Divine Comedy
Jun 2019 • Couples
The Arno is the heart and soul of Firenze just as the Sumida River is the lifeblood of Tokyo or the Seine the lifeblood of Paris.

The centerpiece icon is Ponte Vecchio.

It's all gorgeous. A movable, splendid feast
