The Florence Flood

Florence-Flood.com is an online information resource dedicated to the historic and tragic flood of Florence on November 3rd and 4th, 1966. If you have a resource about the flood you would like to see listed here - photo, video, or text - please let us know. You can also ask questions and/or leave comments on all of the articles using the comment form at the bottom of each, or sign up to receive email alerts when we update the site by using the form below (coming soon!). This is a volunteer operation, so if you are planning to visit Florence, booking a tour or activity from our partner Florence Journal/Viator or your hotel stay from Venere.com helps support us, as does the purchase of books via Amazon. Thanks!
