Rio Buti, is a amazing cold water swimming hole in Tuscany, just outside the center of Prato.
This one is just steps from the city, up a bit of a winding road and a short hike on a marked path. If it weren’t so hot, you could even walk from Prato train station and you can very easily bike here from the city.
Rio Buti is the name of the CAI marked hiking path number 40, which is reached by driving along via del Canneto until the end and parking along the side of the road, and then walking for a bit along the wide bike path that skirts the Bisenzio river.
