Fabulous Florence with Feasts, Music and Food

March 25 – Florentine New Year, aka Feast of the Annunciation. The Florentines celebrate the end of Winter and the start of the spring season with the Feast of the Annunciation, which involves a parade from the Palazzo Vecchio to Piazza SS Annunziata. People meet in Piazza SS Annunziata to eat, drink, and listen to live music. It is also tradition to go to the church of Santissima Annunziata to marvel at its delightfully decorated interior, which includes frescoes and mosaics of the Annunciation.

Feast of Annunciation

Like a lot of European countries Florence celebrates Saint Patrick's Day in true Irish style! - parties, concerts, games, special events, and Irish food and drink – such as Guiness – for 3 days around March 17 in Irlanda in Festa. There is also traditional Celtic music and Irish dance performances at the Irish festival at ObiHall Theater.

There is a famous pub in Florence called Finnegan's Irish Pub which is very proud to be the only Irish pub with Irish owners in Florence. It is likely to be very busy on St Patricks day so head down to enjoy the Craic!
