Sports events in Florence

All Italians are big fans of sports, and the Florentines are no exception.

Football – The passion that  the Florentine people have for the Fiorentina football team cannot be expressed by words. Every Sunday at the Artemio Francs football stadium there is a feast  of emotions, choreography, choirs and goals (hopefully!). If you are a football fan you can’t absolutely miss the warmth of this show.

Marathon of Florence – In November, centuries of history, art and culture accompany  thousands of professionals and enthusiasts who reach Florence from around the world to run the 42 kilometers. Together with the marathon of  Rome, the marathon of Florence has now become the most important in Italy.

Sport & Tradition

In Tuscany, sport and ancient feudal wars merge to create one of the unique events in the world, as football in medieval costumes and the Palio di Siena.

Calcio in Costume (Football in medieval costumes) – For over 600 years, in the month of June, the beautiful scenery of Piazza Santa Croce, turns into a sandy  battle field in 4 historical districts of Florence. The prize is a calf. Calcio in Costume recalls rugby and American football, with the difference that practically there are no rules: fists, punches and kicks are allowed when taking possession of the ball and invading the opponents area.

Palio di Siena – 60 km from Florence, on the 2 July and 16 August the most famous palio in Italy, is a horse race held twice each year on July 2 and August 16 in Siena, in which the horse and rider represent one of the seventeen Contrade, or city wards. A magnificent pageant precedes the race, attracting visitors and spectators from around the world.
