Arno, Florence

4.0
#1 of 8 in Nature in Province of Florence
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.

  • My favorite rooftop in Florence. The sunsets are amazing. Here's the deal... Top floor of the hotel. Non guests welcome. Two sides with a giant bar in the middle. The bar side is open all day. The city views here are unmatched. Extensive wine and cocktails available with upgraded bar food. The restaurant is very good, and probably offers the better sunset views. It's a great place to chill and take some killer photos.
  • Great view of Florence but that's pretty much where it stops. Service is terrible and not to the standard of the Westin brand. Drinks menu uninspiring and cocktails a little underwhelming.
  • View was nice, but was the worst service we've ever had at a bar. We went for happy hour where they offer a snack bar (included with a €20 mandatory minimum first drink cost per person). Waited 30 minutes for a table, Then it took almost an hour for them to take our drink order, and it took another hour to get our drinks. The waiter forgot my order twice and had to come back to the table to ask (it wasn't complicated: Johnnie Walker Blue). My drink came out wrong (Johnnie Walker Black), snack bar food was cold.
  • Pricy, but well worth the price food. The view is absolutely gorgeous. Must visit for a chill lunch over the top of the city.
  • Terrible, slow service. Disorganised. Not what I expected from a 5* hotel. The wine bar we found down the road was much more efficient and better value for money. Nice view - only plus point.
