One of the most beautiful things on Earth is the diversity of our cultures. There are different traditions and customs on the same day. Some of them are similiar to our customs, others are totally different. But isn't this what makes travel so exciting?

For example, on January 6: in Spain children are waiting for the three holy kings, while in Germany children go wander from door to door singing dressed up as the three kings. In Italy, it is also different. Here children are waiting for La Befana, a good witch. She is coming during the night of January 5, and brings toys and sweets for the good children and lumps of coal for the bad ones.
On January 6, there will be a parade starting around 2pm at Piazza Pitti. Around 3pm everyone will meet at Piazza Duomo where there will be music and speeches while everyone is waiting for the procession. Don't miss this opportunity, and celebrate January 6 in a different way!
There is no doubt that Florence offers several events and activities in January. There are classical events like opera, ballet and concerts coming to the city. But there is one event in January that steals the limelight:
