City beach and pools
Florence is not immune to the extreme heat of the cities in summer, but it offers you many opportunities to beat it!
Even this year, the famous beach on the Arno river will be organised: a space in which you will find beach umbrellas and chairs, tanning beds, beach five-a-side football field and beach volley court. You will also find a recreation ground for kids. To refresh yourself, you can use showers and gazebo with nebulizers. If you want to eat something or to have a drink, you can go to the food court. In the area, many events will be organised during all the summer period: shows, concerts, art exhibitions and much more.
But, if you want to dive into the water, you must opt for one of the many swimming pools in Florence, because Arno is not suitable for swimming!
The Rivoli Boutique Hotel offers to its guests a small swimming pool (20 sm.)

Relax and refresh your mind and body by taking a dip in the whirlpool. It’s a little jewel in the heart of the city, with dedicated changing rooms, and heated to 36°C/96.8°F, it’s accessible all year long.
