4/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web
Stroll along Arno, the famous Tuscan waterway that divides the city of Florence. Though the river flows through many Italian towns, the most famous stretch of this body of water is in Florence. Take in views of the river as you walk alongside it and explore charming neighborhoods adjacent to its banks. Best of all, multiple bridges connect the river's two sides--including the popular Ponte Vecchio--and feature a number of classic Italian shops. Look for antiques, leather goods, and jewelry as you cross over these bridges. Stop for a lovely photo op on your way and celebrate your crossing with a gelato. Plan to see Arno and other attractions that appeal to you using our Florence vacation planner.

  • One of the best things you can do before the nightfall is strolling by the river. This is not very wide but that is good because it is surrounded by houses on both sides, bridges... This is the ideal place for a ride that you will never forget.

  • Beautiful view, compulsory attraction. A good walk and several wonderful places to photograph! It's worth it!

  • On the way from the city centre, cross the Ponte Vecchio, head to Piazzale Michelangelo took a walk along the Arno River. When I went, but unfortunately I'm doing work that was damaging to the landscape along the River Walk Hotel.

  • The view was beautiful. Service was adequate. Everything is overpriced as expected. Food was tasty, but nothing remarkable. I recommend going for a cocktail or coffee. You are paying more for the view.
  • Wonderful panoramic views! Especially at sunset! Aperitif drinks you pay minimum 18€ per drink because it includes access to a buffet of nibbles (i.e pasta, sandwiches, fresh fruits, meats etc). This makes the value of the drink a lot less overpriced. The service wasn't great though. It was hard to get our waiters attention to order drinks or to get our bill. Everyone was very lovely to deal with though and nonetheless we will likely return again before we leave Florence.
  • The best 360' terrace in Florence! Try the rooftop restaurant, you won't be disappointed
  • Beautiful rooftop restaurant, recommended for sunset.
  • The restaurant is very good, the ingredients are quality and beautifully cooked. The panoramic position does forgive any lack. The staff are very friendly without affectation. Advice on business lunch with a scope, a glass of wine, dessert, water and coffee. I also recommend the appetizer for the price for the buffet and obviously for the view
