Swimming pool in the Florence countryside: where to go?

Piscina nella campagna di Firenze di Villa Campestri Olive Oil Resort

When the heat arrives, living in the city becomes really difficult as temperatures rise so much that the only thing possible is an escape to cooler places. In these cases there is nothing better than a day to spend by the pool in the countryside of Florence, here’s where to go.

The best ways to escape the heat of the city

During the summer, the temperatures in the city reach really high peaks even exceeding 40 degrees centigrade.

The asphalt, the streets, the squares, everything becomes very hot and it is almost impossible to spend pleasant days inside them.

During the week, work certainly obliges us to stay in the city, but as soon as the weekend arrives, it becomes almost necessary to flee from the heat of the cities to cooler places.

Florence is famous for its high temperatures which, in some cases, reach or approach the national peaks. Those who live in the city, or are there for tourism, however, have some good chances on their side to cool off and spend an invigorating day.

Here are the best ways to escape the heat of the city:

  • an escape to the sea (Livorno is about 90 km away);
  • an excursion to the Tuscan peaks in search of milder temperatures;
  • a day by the pool in the Florence countryside.

The territory of Florence is decidedly very green and allows you to easily find mountain resorts at high enough to find refreshment and enjoy pleasant excursions on foot, by bike or on horseback.

Mugello, for example, offers countless mountain resorts for tourism, discovering food and wine specialties or playing outdoor sports. All at the cool temperatures typical of the hills.

Alternatively, water is certainly an excellent method for cooling off, whether from the sea, river or swimming pool.
