Our city has always something interesting to offer. From sports to cultural activities, you´ll never get bored. Here are some of many activities you can enjoy if you are in town.
Florence Creativity Fair
Visit the renaissance´s Fortress for something very different than visiting a museum. ‘Florence Creativity’ is an event entirely dedicated to what the imagination can produce, in all fields. This fair showcases hand-made products, all made in Italy. From paintings to woodwork, and even tailoring. The gastronomical side of the fair is obviously something to keep track of.
