Just north of Florence’s historic center and near the airport, there are some pleasant parks for running, in relative proximity and accessible via public transport. Can combine with a run through the main part of Sesto, a municipality of Florence worth seeing. Rather than a specific route, here’s a quick guide to the highlights. One exciting add-on is to combine with a visit to the Asmana Wellness Center, where for a day pass you can enjoy their pools, a spa treatment, restaurants and bars.
Run in Parco Villa Solara, pleasant paths 1 km around Via Gramsci. Then enjoy Park Villa dei Marchesi Gerini just to the north, and the smaller Oliveta. Then use Via Gramsci for a tour through the main part of Sesto.
4km to the west is the Asmana Wellness Center, and the adjoining Villa Montalvo And Ragnaia, a pleasant park with 2 km of paths around the perimeter.
