cena di san giovanni

Dinner of St. John at The Tower restaurant

A day of celebrations. This is a way to describe the 24th of June, the feast of St. John, the patron of Florence. The party starts in the morning, with a small civic parade from Palazzo Vecchio to the Duomo and the holy mass is celebrated around 10h30 am. A great opportunity to visit the cathedral, by the way, as it’s opened to everybody.

With no doubts, the highlight of the party is the fireworks – or Fochi di San Giovanni, as called by Florentines, lightening from Piazzale Michelangelo. Would you like to see this amazing spectacle with a privileged view? We are preparing our traditional Dinner of S. John, when we will be offering a very special menu:
