Eskimo Bar – Florence’s Second Beach!

YouTube Preview Image

Eskimo Bar is new this year and it is definitely one for the Undiscovered Florence category. This cool bar is set beside a small man-made beach in the very centre of Florence, just down from the Ponte Vecchio. We got there by bicycle which is a cool way to see the city, especially when the weather is good!

It is a great place to hang out or tan; you usually have to pay for the sun longers (approx 3 Euros) but as it was late in the afternoon, the lady let us have them for free. OK, so we bought two Cokes for 6 Euros but still, this little beach in the center of Florence gets my vote! Some of you will notice that I have put this video in the nightlife category. That’s because, although the video wasn’t taken at night, Eskimo Bar also plays live music in the evenings. At other times there are DJs. The musical focus is South American/Latino mostly.

    OK now that is just cruel! No fair :-)
    Can I visit please??
    Also, I am interested in the Gates of Paradise at the Baptistry in front of the Duomo. Can you do me a vid on that?

  2. Jason says:

    Thanks for the comment Ellie. I’ll get onto a video of the gates as soon as I can.

    If you thought that was good, you should see the video of the Clasic Cars in Ferrara; it was fantastic!

    ha ha! That england/florence comparison is just TOO funny. Nice shots, i’m looking forward to your newest creations.

    Loved the comparison between the UK and Florence in September! September weather can be as good as July and August weather, only not so darn hot.

    Many of Italy’s riverside towns have mini-beaches – Pavia and Rome have them.

    Nice vid! Would have been better with commentary possibly.

    Thanks Alex.

    I agree, the videos would definitely be better with a voice over. It’s something I’ll be doing this year: the videos I post will hopefully be much more like the travel videos that people are used to, with an informative commentary to match the visuals.

    I’ll look forward to vids with voice over then! And seeing as the videos are on YouTube, I might even feature a few.

    The Flip makes videos which look pretty good too. Must encourage a few more people to go see Florence and may even convince a few to return.

    Good stuff!
