The Arno is mostly associated with Florence but it also flows through Pisa. You can walk along the banks beside some grand houses. There is a path on both sides of the river but you are walking along side a busy road.

Taking a stroll along the Arno River is relaxing and allows you time for reflection. Whether during the day or night there are always people hustling along.

You must walk along the Arno to really get the flavor of this beautiful city. And, standing back, looking towards the Ponte Vecchio is one of the iconic photo shots to have in your travelogue. And it’s even more beautiful taken at night.

I highly recommend a stroll after dark. Get a gelato and take your time walking along the river, glistening with lights. Especially with a loved one.

Swarms of picture-takers all day and all night. A real centre of Florence attractions. A massive gentle flow of murky water.

Take the time to walk along the river in the early morning - great light and few people. Keep the sun behind you for the best pics

This river runs through Florence on an East/West line, bisecting the city. Fewer tourists tend to flock to the southern side, whereas the northern side is heavily congested. There is a walkway along side the river, or you can just walk along the roads that...More

I loved every minute walking along the river. Florence is a live museum but you will feel the need to get away from the cultural shock. The perfect getaway is a walk along the river. My favorite time was early in the morning when the...More

Arno River is lovely to add as a piece in beautiful Florence. The Arno (the river) is what completes this beautiful city. Arno has lots of faces. It may get peaceful, fun, lonely and romantic. There are beautiful views of sunsets over this river in...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.
