Palazzo Lanfranchi da Scalo Roncioni
Veduta Palazzo Lanfranchi da Scalo Roncioni (A. Matteucci)

This is a little walk along the Arno river with its historic buildings, gardens and churches. A simple route but no less impressive, where we meet historical sites such as the Redini theatre, little known place, and museums such as the Lanfranchi Palace culminating with the beautiful Giardino Scotto.
