New Year in Florence
3…2…1… Happy New Year! How will you be spending the hours leading up to 2016? When it comes to ringing in the New Year in Florence, there are parties, events and dining that can make the start to your 2016 the best you’ve ever had. Did I mention the Florence skyline filled with fireworks? There isn’t an official municipal fireworks display. Many of the larger restaurants and hotels will have their own displays, frequently held from the roof top gardens. The top viewing points include the square in front of the Duomo, the Ponte Vecchio bridge, or anywhere else alongside the Arno River. The best panoramic view will be from Piazzale Michelangelo so, arriving early is highly recommended. Live concerts, for free will take place in piazzas all over the city center.
