Happy birthday Italy! Photos of Florence’s city centre on’la festa dell’unità d’Italia’

Here are some photos taken in Florence’s city centre for celebrations of the union of Italy’s 150th anniversary – la festa dell’unità d’Italia.

The parade marched through the must-see sights of Florence, starting just near the Artviva Walking Tours Florence office (where most important things in Florence happen!) and onto the Piazza della Republica then to the Piazza della Signoria.

Whilst they may not include as much fanfare and musical accompaniment, our small-group and private walking tours are certainly entertaining, and allow you to do much sightseeing in Florence’s city centre in a 3-hour guided tour with expert tour guide.

You can choose between a small-group guided walking tour – The Original Florence Walk or a private guided tour in Florence, the My Exclusive Original Florence Walk.

  1. I spent over 3 weeks in Italy last summer travelling around by train. I think my biggest tip would be to dress well.(I wore cotton summer dresses). The difference in service that my daughter and I got compared to people that were in ratty t-shirts and shorts was amazing. They would be seated at the back of restaurants while we got the best seats in the house time after time.Everyone seemed to take extra time and effort with us.
