Pavoniere Firenze

A beautiful old villa with two outside bars and a swimming pool is something you would assume that you have to drive out to Chianti to see. But on Thursday night, I met up with some locals at Pavoniere in Florence. It’s just a 10 minute taxi ride or 30 minute walk along the Arno in the setting sun of the evening. Amongst trees and opposite the Hippodrome (or horse track) you could be in the countryside. In fact it is so well hidden that you could drive on by without realising that a drink, food and a free swim is just the other side of the fence.

This has to be one of the Top Undiscovered Things in Florence; the only language I heard all night was Italian. The locals know it’s a great place for an evening out and now you do too!
