New Year’s Eve in Florence: ideas and events
New Year’s Eve 2022 is approaching and brings us many memories of a year that has just ended and we are all wondering how to spend the last day of the year. Where could I go to celebrate the end of the old and the arrival of the new?
In this article you will find out why Florence is one of the best cities to spend the New Year’s Eve, along with some great ideas on what to do during your New Year’s Eve in Florence.
The New Year’s Eve you’ve always dreamed of
The city of Florence during the Christmas season and New Year holidays is cheered up by a unique atmosphere. Christmas light decorations that spread an evocative in the streets of the historic centre, lights dancing between the bridges over the Arno, shops and their windows decorated for your Christmas shopping.
Staying in Florence during this period is a true gift that you can treat yourself or your partner with. And if you want to dive into the festive atmosphere of the New Year, you can attend one of the many evening events in discos and nightclubs, dinners or concerts. A program for all!
It is not difficult to find ideas on what to do on New Year’s Eve in Florence, if you are thinking of parties in clubs and discos. The three best options are the Space Club, Club Twenty One, and the Blue Velvet.
Each of these venues has its own personality and offers a variety of shows, depending on what kind of experience you want to have, if you like to be in the crowd, dance, or prefer a quieter table, away from the heart of the celebrations.
If you prefer to spend New Year’s Eve in close contact with the city history, its amazing streets and piazzas, consider to join the night party in the square, celebrating outdoors.
If that’s your choice, you will celebrate the arrival of the new year in the church of Santa Maria Novella with a classical music concert, in Piazza Duomo with a Gospel concert and two Moon Readings, or in Piazza della Signoria which hosts a free show of acrobatics and aerial dance.
Cultural New Year celebrations
If you like the idea of spending a cultural New Year in Florence, the Teatro Puccini, the Teatro della Pergola and the Teatro di Cestello offer the best opportunities to say goodbye the old year and greet the new one while watching a magnificent show.
On stage at Teatro Puccini, you can enjoy the show Contromano, while the Della Pergola offers Il Marito Invisibile and the Di Castello stages the theatrical show La Supposta Eredità del Cavalier Nencioni.
