Great place to cool down after a few days checking out the museums and palazzos of Florence in the sweltering heat. The Italians are rather strict about no eating by the pool, but the water is clean and the deck chairs (€4) comfy. We walked...More

We decided to go to the swimming pool Le Pavoniere to spend a relaxing day but unfortunately it was a big disappointment. The cost of the entrance per person with a sunbed is 12 euros, that's the right price if you receive a nice service...More

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
