Citizens and shops celebrate Borgo Ognissanti
Saturday, May 23 from 11 am to 10 pm you are invited to discover Borgo Ognissanti celebrating itself: art, culture, food and so on!
It’s the perfect moment to find out the stories and the hidden locations of this carachteristic neighborhood of Florence, in which you can also find the Grand Hotel Adriatico, and to take part in the Block-Tour, a thorough free guided tour of the block. The tour lasts about 2 hours and the meeting point is in Piazza Ognissanti, right in the middle of the place, where a professional guide of the city of Florence (english or italian) will wait for you!
Throughout the event is also possible to visit one of the most fascinating attraction of the borgo, the Cenacolo del Ghirlandaio, only in the morning hours from 9 am to 12 am.
This celebration gives you the possibility to go shopping and to take advantage of special sales: 10% at hairdresser shops, 10% to 70% in clothes shops, a free blood pressure measuring at chemists’ and much more! Living the neighborhood in the best way possible for citizens and whoever is curious about it, is the main purpose of this day and this event. This is the reason why 8€ Cards are available to taste 5 different delicatessen you can choose between food, wine and ice-cream in bars, restaurants and bakers of the block. Kids under 6 don’t pay and the cards are sold at Bar Curtatone, Bar San Carlo and Vonoutlet.
