The Best Sunset Spot In Florence

Easy Living Beach Bar. Drink Prosecco As The Sun Sets Over The Arno River.


Witnessing a Florence sunset over the Arno River is blissful magic. As hundreds gather along the river and bridges to watch the last of the sun’s rays be swallowed by the horizon, I prefer to sit atop the ledge at Easy Living Beach Bar to watch Florence’s daily glow vanish into the night’s sky. Although loud chatter reverberates through the courtyard, all I hear is a silent hum.

Florence sunsets cultivate an intriguing effect where people become romantic, enlightened, nostalgic or tranquil. For me, capturing the beautiful moment the day ends is meditative and inspiring. It’s the perfect time to become reflective on my incredible day and breathe in the wonderment of travel life. Plus, anytime I have a Prosecco in my hand I tend to become overly philosophical. Then again, don’t we all?

Easy Living Bar is located at the bottom of Piazzale Michelangelo, above the golden sands of Arno Beach. Enjoy a Tuscan meal under the Firenze stars, or simply find a spot on the ledge and sip on a refreshing cocktail. Better yet. Grab a blanket, a bottle of prosecco and some Tuscan delicacies and have a picnic on the beach as the sunset fades into the Arno River.
