If you are a runner and will be touring Florence stay near this park. It has a 6.8 kilometer loop jogging path -- no traffic, only crossing a handful of not busy streets. I ran very early in the morning -- like 6 to 7...More

There were African immigrants loitering around the park. Lots of ethnically diverse crowd using the playground. Was not threatened at all, but didn't feel safe, & it is so different to Florence centre. The pool we swam in was nice & clean, you must wear...More

Park was great, especially in this summer heat. There was a public toilet that you need to pay (1€ per visit), but it was open only till 10 p.m., so after the concert we weren't able to use it. At the end of the park...More

A very beautiful park. Lots of greenery. There are set play areas for children which are nice too. Free water fountains are very handy. There are also a few areas that have workout stations which are well maintained.

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
