Celebrating New Year's Eve in Tuscany

Get on your Danicing Shoes & Celebrate Capodanno

Are you planning how to spend New Year's Eve or the first day 2017 in Tuscany? Then you won't be short of options of where to go to celebrate the ringing in of the new year.

If you are based in the city center of Florence you should check out our article dedicated to activites in the city squares (concerts and games for all ages).  

Pistoia is kicking the year off with lots of music and activities to celebrate their nomination as the Italian Cultural City of the Year, and you can view their program at this link.

It has been more than 25 years since I took my first steps in Italy and I still haven’t found a good reason to leave.  Between the food, the culture, the history, the art, the landscapes … did I mention the food? I have become a lifelong student. It didn't take longe to learn that Italians all have stories that long to be told; stories that paint a picture of how hard work produces character, how life is made of ups and downs and how good it feels to laugh.
