Florentine New Year!

Florentine New Year
March the 25th marks the Florentine new year, the beginning and arrival of Spring, otherwise known as the ‘Feast of the Annunciation’. People usually gather around the Piazza SS Annunziata, and if you stick around near to the Palazzo Vecchio, you’ll see the beginnings of a parade which carries on until the Piazza SS Annunziata too. Once you’re there, there’s the aptly designed Santissima Annunziata with frescoes related to this wonderful occasion.
