What to do this week in Florence and surroundings

Events, exhibitions and highlights from November 28 to December 3, 2022

Art, concerts, shows and good food. Here are the events not to be missed this week in and around Florence.

  • BTO - BE TRAVEL ONLIFE AT STAZIONE LEOPOLDA

BTO - Be Travel Onlife, the benchmark event in Italy dedicated to the marriage of innovation and tourism, returns to the Stazione Leopolda, Tuesday, November 29 and Wednesday, November 30, integrating the traditional formula with the most advanced Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality innovations already experienced last year. This year's central theme will be precisely Metatourism. The Metaverse is the theme of the moment, a revolution that is about to change our lives and patterns of reference with reality. Cascading through it could be changes in how we pay, how we search for information, how we relate to places, the very concept of hospitality. Confirmed are the four BTO Topics against which the Metatourism theme will be declined: Hospitality, Food and Wine, Digital Innovation and Strategy, Destination.
