Rivers flood their banks. This has been going on since the beginning of time. But when 1966 came and the river unleashed its vengeance on Florence, then more extreme measures were needed and were undertaken. An upriver dam was built and the river's future flow...More

Arno is, beside Tiber, the most important river at the Apennines and Florence wouldn’t be the same without it. Although the river flooded the city many times (last flood was twenty years ago) in its history, the city was always living and breathing around its...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

We love walking along the Arno River... Why? First, because you can get away from insane crowds... Second, because you can enjoy the best views of Ponte Vecchio, facades of gorgeous palaces on both sides of the river, and cross the bridges to the neighborhoods...More

The river is very dirty and it is better to observe it from afar, so it seems a lot more beautiful. The water in the river is dirty brown, no one is swimming in it, and the river is not ship boat. Beautifully look all...More

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.

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.
