Christmas lights via de' Tornabuoni 2020
November 19, 2020

Florence dresses up for Christmas, with the new illuminations that light up the city

The most glamorous shopping street doesn't renounce to the big lights, officially lit from Friday, November 20, 2020

If saying Magical Christmas may seem obvious, try to imagine the last and darkest month of the year without its festivities, without its thousands of illuminations, bare of its colourful decorations, of the festoons of open churches with their cribs of the most different shapes.
Despite the delicate perido that Florence and all our country are forced to face, the magic of Christmas wants and must be a relief and a hope for a better future.

Christmas lights via de' Tornabuoni 2020

So, while waiting for the Magi to arrive in a sumptuous parade, as Benozzo Gozzoli describes it in the Chapel of the Magi in Palazzo Medici, Florence has already decorated its streets with lights and festoons that will lead straight to the great Christmas tree set up in Piazza del Duomo: a 14 metre high fir tree dotted with many red lilies is a spectacle for young and old alike, in the shadow of the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, Giotto's Bell Tower and the Baptistery.

The first destination dressed in festive dress is certainly the one that has represented for centuries "the good living room of Florence", via Tornabuoni: raise your eyes. Up, towards the sky. You will become like little children who get excited in front of many games of light, decorations and decorations.

An elegant mantle of golden Christmas balls, silvery threads of light and star petals fill one of the most famous fashion streets in the world and then head into the triangle between via Calzaiuoli, via degli Speziali and via del Corso. 

Un natale delicato, ma pieno di speranza

A fashion quadrilateral where the windows of the great Florentine names such as Gucci, Ferragamo, Emilio Pucci, Ermanno Scervino stand out.
We only have to wish you, now more than ever, a peaceful Christmas.
