Events in Florence (August 7 – August 20, 2015)

Welcome to Florence Inferno, the blog that provides you with information on events happening in Florence, as well as an events guide with information on music, art, cinema, markets, and many other things occuring in the city.

This week we make special mention of the Feast of San Lorenzo (St. Lawrence) on August 10. St Lawrence is the co-patron saint of Florence. Every year on this feast day, there is an outdoor celebration in Piazza San Lorenzo that includes free lasagna and watermelon for all visitors.

The Bardini Garden

The wonderful Bardini Garden, which provides one of the most beautiful views of the city of Florence, is situated only a few hundred metres from Costa San Giorgio and the back gate of the Boboli Gardens, through which the main characters in Dan Brown’s Inferno escape into pathways.
