San Niccolò

View on the map

In summer, visit Easy Living's city beach on the banks of the Arno, below the Torre di San Niccoló.

If you are looking for a cosy authentic Florentine neighbourhood, San Niccolò is the place to be. It is an old residential neighbourhood located at the bottom of the famous Piazzale Michelangelo. The bars, which are mostly frequented by working locals in the morning and between noon, are instead populated by local youngsters in the evening. This district also has Florence's only urban beach, where you can sunbathe and relax in summer with a cold refreshment in hand. Above San Niccolò is the famous Piazzale Michelangelo square, from where you have an insane view over the whole city.
