Florence Hostels 2009

The Worldwide Florentine Carnival Feb 2009

The Worldwide Florentine Carnival of Florence is coming in early February 2009 bringing the best of Tuscany to life!

All the villages from around the area will hold their own festivities and then all unite together for one huge celebratory parade which will begin in Piazza Oggnisanti and end in Piazza della Signoria. Costumes from around the world will be on show ready to impress with all the vivid colours.

Florentine celebrations have always been a mix of both Catholic and Pagen and this carnival is no exception. Pre-lenten celebrations have always been present in Florentine life, more so in the 15th and 16th centuries when masked men would impress the woman who caught their attention with beautiful and romantic carnival song serenades.
