FESTA Theatre produces an unbelievable range of English speaking events in the heart of the city, many of which are aimed at a younger audience. They also run kids workshops and encourage children to ask lots of questions and partake in the theatrical events, maybe with the ulterior motive of looking for tomorrows artists and actors!
Bicycles in Florence is wonderful way to see the city and the outskirts. Pack a picnic and a bottle to escape on two wheels and have your very own Italian adventure. Vendors for this scheme are located in various points over the city, but do have a tendency to pack up at the slightest hint of rain!
