Feast of St John the Baptist and the Calcio Storico

Feast of St John the Baptist and the Calcio Storico

  • 24 June

A fireworks display in Florence is always a spectacular experience, and by far the best is the show in honor of the city’s patron saint, St John the Baptist.

Every June crowds of visitors and residents throng the city’s piazzas, riverfront, downtown sky bars, and nearby hilltops to admire the colorful display light up the waters of the Arno, the ancient rooftops, and church facades.

Earlier in the same day, crowds enjoy another unmissable date in Piazza Santa Croce: the final of the famous ancient Florentine sport, calcio storico.
