There were African immigrants loitering around the park. Lots of ethnically diverse crowd using the playground. Was not threatened at all, but didn't feel safe, & it is so different to Florence centre. The pool we swam in was nice & clean, you must wear...More

Park was great, especially in this summer heat. There was a public toilet that you need to pay (1€ per visit), but it was open only till 10 p.m., so after the concert we weren't able to use it. At the end of the park...More

A very beautiful park. Lots of greenery. There are set play areas for children which are nice too. Free water fountains are very handy. There are also a few areas that have workout stations which are well maintained.

The Le Cascine is a large park that runs along the River Arno in Florence. I enjoyed the jogging opportunities and running in the park.

I've come to run here many times or simply to take a long walk. It's not a particularly well kept park, but you can get away from traffic and tourists. Mostly there are locals walking their dogs and the occasional jogger. There's a market there,...More

We went to a small section of the park and it was great to have the kids play ball in. Not the easiest place to take a pushchair

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
