Try to get to a match to go see Florence play a game that you will never for get.
Do not drink the beer inside the place cause it is non-alcoholic, and you are also allowed to smoke hash spliff in-side as you will see when you sit down and get ready for some crazy-ness.

If you're in the city during soccer (football) season and have some time to spare, going to see a game is one of the best ways to get a taste of the locals when they're at their most frenzied and energetic. I don't care too much for soccer, but I fully enjoyed watching and listening to the crowds cheer on their teams. One surprise for me - the opposing team's fans (the game I saw was Florence vs. Sienna) was kept in a locked, sectioned-off portion of the stadium throughout the game! The fans didn't seem to mind, it kept crowd violence from occurring, and it was definately a first for me in terms of what I've seen at professional sports events.
A rowing club on the Arno
There is a rowing club right next to the Ponte Vecchio so you have a very scenic rowing location. But it´s a private club so no tourists will get a boat here.... Only a short distance on the Arno can be rowed, as there are two weirs after a few meters in each direction....Maybe that´s why they have such a rowing boat on the jetty!!!
Rowing under the Old Bridge
Well I don't think there's much to add. Rowing into the sunset on the Arno River is something special!
La Fiorentina is Florence's soccer or futbol team and they play there games at the Stadio Artemio Frachi. The soccer season runs from August to May, and home games are played every other Sunday.
There are various swimming pools in Florence which are very crowded during summer. Here is a link for the most popular ones. During winter pools work on a booked time slot basis.

Birthplace of soccer?
Some Florentines will tell you that soccer was invented here. Now, I'm sure this will be disputed by many, but there's no doubt that the locals, like all Italians, have a passion for the game.
If u love Canaoeing then u must not miss this chance. I have seen a lot of people enjoying the time in the river with their canaoes.
Equipment: I have really no idea about it.
