February in Florence with love!

Events and experiences this February with Destination Florence

February in Florence is perfect for wandering around the city without too many tourists and following the eat, learn, love mantra. Taste local products, learn new aspects of the city, embrace the culture and look after your well-being! The month sees international fairs ranging from taste to movement. We recommend you enjoy a little indulgence, and suggest you discover a lesser-known museum: Brancacci Chapel with its fourteenth-century frescoes by Masaccio and Masolino.
