The Tuscany is really a great destination to travel to in the early summer. Temperatures are already nice and warm and the landscape convinces with all of the beauty it has to offer. Whoever plans on going to this fantastic Italian region and happens to stay in the great city of Florence: read through our chosen TOP 4 events in June and start scheduling your perfect trip.
Tuscan Sun Festival: This wonderful event of international renown happens to be in the region of Tuscany each year aiming to provide one diverse experience for the masses of attracted visitors. It is a pitty that The Tuscan Sun Festival was cancelled in 2013 – but luckily it is about to give its comeback in 2014. From June 9th to 16th spectators can populate the Piazza Signorelli in Cortona – a nice city nearby Florence which makes a great destination for a day-trip. What especially extinguishes the Sun Festival is its wide range of high-class contributions from all fields of interests. From concerts, over wine and culinary events to wellness classes – there is nothing you couldn’t do! Participate in a relaxing Tai Chi workshop before you enjoy a local glass of wine while watching a nice cooking demonstration. Some additional information can be found here.
Festa San Giovanni: When you happen to be in the dreamlike area of Tuscany in June, try to be in Florence at June 24th. Every year Florence celebrates its patron saint San Giovanni on this particular date, honoring the city’s guardian with a public holiday. Since shops and offices are generally closed, visitors and tourists can celebrate the feast together with the Florentines and are able to get to know a real, local tradition first hand. On “Festa San Giovanni” there is a lot to discover throughout the whole town: festivities already start in the morning with a nice parade starting at Piazza Signoria to fleet Florence and find their highlight in “Calcio Storico Florentino” later in the day – a famous historic soccer game taking place at Piazza Santa Croce.

From June 17th to 20th Pitti Immagine Uomo and Pitti Immagine W will bring all the latest of fashion and new projects to the Fortezza da Basso to impress the stylish audience.

Wine and Opera – La Traviata: Enjoy the most famous Italian opera in a nice ambience combined with tasty treats.

Tickets are available for a price of 48,00€ to 113,00€, depending on your culinary choices.
