Why locals love it

The Cascine is popular with families because it's the perfect place to take little ones out for a spin in the stroller, or for older kids to run around and play. The popular Tuesday market runs every morning until about 2pm and is a top spot for scoring steals.

Why you should visit it

There's no better place in Florence for a bike ride, so get off the busy, narrow streets—in the Cascine you can cycle (and breathe) easily without getting caught in crazy Florentine traffic. Take a book and sit on a bench, go for a leisurely stroll along one of the boulevards, or stop for a bite of street food at the stands spread around the park.

Special tip

Avoid it at night—though the Cascine has really cleaned up its act, it's still pretty seedy, especially when the sun goes down.

Great place, especially if the weather is great, excellent for a picnic or a bike ride, it goes on for endless kms along the river. Don't really recommend to go there in the evening, though, might be full of suspicious characters.
