Florence is much more than a city of art: it's also a great place for sport lovers! If you are looking for something interesting and different to do I suggest a great bike trail by the Arno River, from Parco delle Cascine to Parco dei Renai. The trail is fairly easy: 13 km (8 miles), mostly flat land, mostly by the Arno River. It seems to be in a rural area as you'll be surrounded by nature, beautiful birds like the Great Cormorant or Herons. The path itself is beautiful, but even more interesting is your destination: you can relax by the swimming pool, get a tan by the lake, do a windsurf course (like I did some weeks ago!) or even play mini-golf! We created a google map to help you planning this "adventure".
