Feste ed eventi medievali in Toscana

Every year Tuscany offers a wide array of Medieval Festivals rich with parades in authentic dress from the times, games, food, flag throwers and spectators who come to join in a few hours in the “time machine”.

Dressing up Medieval style in Tuscany

It is obvious that Tuscany, with its many picturesque towns, both small and large, presents the perfect stage for the revocation of jousts, races, dances and remembering historic events like weddings, murders, and battles. These types of events happen all year long, however, it would seem that many are concentrated in the late spring and summer seasons, where everyone can enjoy the festivities outside with the long sunny days and warm temps.

Not only are there important historic representations and exhibitions, but the townspeople often join in the fun taking the time to dress the part, provide stands and food that are suited to the time frame and extra care to restore the vias and streets in the town to their original “glory”.

We have put together a list of the of the more famous and colorful Medieval festivals that play out throughout Tuscany. If we have missed one that you think really should be on our to-do list, let us know!!

In the meantime, have a look at these, pick one you like and enjoy!
