The Beach on the Arno in Florence
The beach on the Arno is not as big as the Versilia ones, but for people wandering in town on hot days it is a pleasant opportunity to spend some time in a relaxing environment.
In the summer season the river Arno flows quiet and from the beach, near to Piazza Poggi you can admire Florence and its beauties from a different perspective; even though you are in the historic center of Florence you feel like you are in a place far from the city.
On the day, the beach is full of people who want to spend some time relaxing, you can rent sun loungers and coverings, and enjoy refreshing showers to better handle the summer hot.
In the beach on the Arno there is the space for classic summer games by using the sand and for doing sports in a clean environment in the middle of nature.
In the evening the beach on the Arno turns into a suggestive setting where you can enjoy the sunset and the night by drinking great cocktails and aperitifs and eating good foods; since 2005 all kinds of events are organized attracting the interest of the Florentines and of the many tourists in Florence.
Music, theater and art are the themes inspired by many events that the Easy Living Association has been organizing for many years on the shore of the Arno, making this place one of the most active cultural meeting of the Florentine summer.
Going to the beach on the Arno is a different way to spend the day and the evenings in Florence, a place quite different from classical tours but at the same time equally interesting so that it gives Florentines and foreign visitors the chance to know and compare cultures and art disciplines.
