Essential Londa Information
Things to do
When coming from Contea and entering into Londa there is a bridge, built in 1871, with two stone arches. On the banks, recently built, is the river park. The road then passes under an ancient porch which is located at the entrance to the old town. Continuing the road leads to Piazza Umberto I, which is an oblong and slightly sloped square. The shape of the square, a "natural" amphitheater, makes it an ideal place for outdoor theater and film events, which occur often in the summer months.
Not far from the city center, lies a lake, which is where several fairs and festivals are held, as well as being reference point for fishermen. Nearby, there is the Visitor Center of the National Park of the Casentino Forests, Mount Falterona and Campigna, and there are some sports grounds (tennis, skating). The September there is a festival which takes place on the second weekend of the month. It occurs on the lake shore with the main highlight of the event being the launch of a balloon from the center of the lake, and fireworks display that reflected in the water.
