Things to do in Florence this June!
1 – Chianti Marathon
Until a couple of decades ago, a traditional sporting event would take place covering the entirety of the Chianti territory. This sporting event is now what they call the Chianti Marathon, and begins with its first edition this year. Taking place on the 5th of June, this marathon comes with three different itineraries: 42km, 20km and 10km. Each route will pass through the Florentine region of Chianti Classico. More specifically, San Casciano Val di Pesa, Tavarnelle Val di Pesa and the Greve in Chianti itself. For more information, read the website: http://www.chianticlassicomarathon.com
2 – International Street Food Parade
Grab a pizza at the Parco le Cascine, or as a matter of fact pretty much anything you can imagine that is tasty and mobile. 70 street-food stalls, music, free entrance, and returning this year due to popular demand after the success of the event last year. Open all weekend. Kicks off on Friday 9th June at 18:00, and continues Saturday and Sunday until midnight each day.
3 – Walk in Historical Costume in the Centre of Florence
June the 11th marks the day. Between 10am and 7pm, you and many others will embrace Florence in its full authenticity. You will walk around Florence, between each of its historical squares, its streets and museums as a professional photographer takes snaps at your classy, historical costumes. Dresses are available if you write to this email address and request one. Also for any other enquiries: firstname.lastname@example.org
4 – Radiohead are coming
On the 18th June, everything will be in its right place as Radiohead will land in Florence off the back of the release of their super melancholic LP in 2016: ‘A Moon Shaped Pool’. You can still grab your tickets on eventful.com, as of writing the gig is still not sold out – quite a rarity for Radiohead. You’ll be enjoying the post-alternative vibes out at the Ippodromo del Visarno, an out-door venue with plenty of charm and atmosphere.
5 – 2 Cellos are upon us
The cello duo are hitting Pistoria on June the 29th. For those in Florence, this only means a 20 minute train ride from Santa Maria Novella. A chance to witness the Slovenian and Croatian classically trained artists rock-out as they bring you their depictions of an endless array of rock tunes, and pretty much any song you might have heard of.
