For the New Year Florence becomes an immense outdoor party, around the city will be set up different stages that will offer shows for all tastes.
You can take advantage of the holidays to spend a few days in the city that during the Christmas period becomes even more beautiful, full of life, colors and lights.
For New Year’s Eve 2018 the evocative Piazzale Michelangelo will host the main concert with artists such as Ermal Meta, Morgan and Gualazzi.
But in every square there will be music and entertainment, each with its own dominant theme: classical music in Piazza Signoria, sound and light installations in Santissima Annunziata, live music in Oltrarno, initiatives for families and children since the afternoon in Gavinana.
All New Year’s events in Florence will be free admission.
For those who want to live a truly original New Year, we highly recommend the Medieval New Year’s Eve in Florence.
You can participate in a charming banquet at the Antico Spedale del Bigallo, a medieval building founded in 1214 at the gates of authentic medieval Florence.
You can imagine being in a Florentine court of the fourteenth century and sitting among the guests of a noble family who with a lavish banquet enlivened by the games of the jesters, musical and dances, greets the new year wishing auspicious luck.
A dip in the Middle Ages savoring ancient dishes rigorously drawn from the medieval eno-gastronomic tradition. Spicy foods and wines, presented in respect of customs and tradition, will delight the palate of the guests.
And then lots of fun with juggling entertainment for adults and children, combining the art of the storyteller and the jester with that of juggling, to culminate in an exciting show of fire after midnight!
All enlivened by the ancient dances of the Noble Lords and the Gentlemen, listening to the notes of a lute.
In short, it will be like starting the new year experiencing a truly unique and unrepeatable dream!
But New Year Party is not just Florence. In fact, even Barberino di Mugello is preparing to experience a truly exceptional New Year’s Eve.
