Stadio Communale Artemio Franchi, Firenze, Italia


Home of Fiorentina. An unusual ground by modern standards in that only one side has a stand. On the other three sides you are well exposed to the elements. The away supporters end is little more than a cage and its quite a novelty to view. The pitch itself is surrounded by a glass fence meaning that vision is not impaired. Theres no running track which means that those seated near the front are only about 10 feet from the players. Opposite the main stand is a rather unusual flag tower called The Tower of Marathon
