Not the longest or most important river in Italy, the Arno may be one of the most scenic. Its route meanders through Florence, Empoli and Pisa. In Florence the river flows under the Ponte Vecchio.

Cities along the rivers banks have been flooded quite frequently due to the unpredictable nature of the Arno’s flow. Rain upstream can cause the river to go from almost dry to flooded in a matter of days.

The Arno rises in the Appennines and meets the Ligurian Sea near Pisa.
