Carnival of Florence

Carnival of Florence

  • 21st and 22th February 2020

After more than a century, the ancient tradition of Carnival, dating back to the Medici government’s era, is renewed in Florence. Thanks to the collaboration with Carnevalia and with two important carnivals in Italy - Viareggio and Venice ones - a very lively two days is scheduled in the historic centre of Florence.

On the evening of 21st February 2020, Palazzo Vecchio will honour a tradition of Renaissance origin, opening its doors to ladies and gentlemen well-dressed for the Grand Carnival Ball - Tribute to Venice. The gala event, hosted in the Salone dei Cinquecento and enlivened by a show by the Accademia del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, requires paid entry and reservation.

The Florence Carnival will continue the following day, Saturday 22 February, with a great party open to everyone. A parade, guided by the most beloved masks of tradition, will leave in the early afternoon from Piazza Santa Maria Novella and will arrive in Piazza della Signoria, where the celebration of Carnival will last until 7 pm with music, animation and games for children.
