After last year's success, Florence is once again hosting a Ferris wheel and ice skating rink over the Christmas festive period.

The Florence Ice Village 2022 takes place in the Fortezza gardens from 2 December until 15 January 2023. In addition to the 55-metre high Ferris wheel, Europe's longest ice skating rink around the central pool in the garden, Christmas markets, and an entertainment area for the little ones are also returning.
