Arno, Florence

3.8
#1 of 9 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.
