Easter Offer in Florence, among Luxury and Elegance
Dive into the Florentine tradition and enjoy one of the most amazing holidays of the city
The city of Florence is well worth a visit during every period of the year, although there are some special occasions during which the city center really gets alive more than ever; one of these golden times is, in fact, Easter.
Easter in Florence is one special occasion where people have the chance to rejoin and celebrate the holiday following a tradition started over 300 years ago: we are talking about the “scoppio del carro”, an authentic Florentine tradition that takes place on Easter day, starting at 10 am.
According to the tradition, a 30-ft. tall chariot full of fireworks – the so called “Brindellone” – has to be dragged around the streets of Florence by oxen, starting from Via Il Prato and ending its journey in Piazza Duomo; at this point, during the service, the archbishop lights up a dove-shaped rocket – called “colombella” – making it to fly out of the church and hit the chariot, lighting up the fireworks and providing an amazing pyrotechnic show.
This tradition is surely one of the most representative of Florentine Easter and whoever would like to enjoy this peculiar show and dive into the real folklore of the city cannot miss this event. To fully enjoy a show of this kind – which takes place across all the city center – the best solution is to find an accommodation which enables you to reach the center of the action quickly and on foot: Hotel Brunelleschi is simply just perfect for this.
Thanks to its convenient location just near the Duomo, Hotel Brunelleschi is ideal for those who want to reach the city center in an easy way.
Since Easter is such an important holiday for Florence, Hotel Brunelleschi has thought of an exclusive offer dedicated to the clients: the offer includes 2 overnight stays in Classic Exclusive or Deluxe rooms; if you want to spoil yourself a bit, you can also upgrade to one of the luxurious Suites.
Breakfast is included and served in Salone Stemma and Salone Libery from 7 to 10.30 am, providing a rich buffet. The morning then goes on with a guided tour to Museo Pagliazza – the private museum of the hotel – where you will be able to visit an authentic roman “calidarium” and also to take a look at some Montelupo ceramics, belonging to the Renaissance: a concierge will take care of you during the entire tour.
