Sports in Florence

Florence has a vast number of sports available to both its visitors and its inhabitants. Due to the fact that Florence is situated merely minutes away from its neighbouring towns, it can offer a wide range of activities to suit all individual needs. These include various activities such as Football, Swimming and Tennis. Some of the other sports available to you include :


If it is competitive cycling you are after, many of the main cycling events are highlighted in the sports pages of the local newspapers. However, if you wish to simply cycle at your own leisure, there are many bike rental shops around Florence and cycling is a great way to explore both the city and the countryside surrounding it.


There are just two main golf courses in Florence. Both of them offer a great game with great views too. The Golf club Montelupo is a golf course with 9 holes and is located just 26km from the city centre on the banks of the River Arno.
