First of all wake up in a such important day and in a such important city sounds really exciting and the day is proclaimed to be full of emotions!

Let’s go!

H. 08.00 AM - Wake up early to enjoy the first walk in the city center, not yet crowded with people and enjoy a nice breakfast at one of the historic bars, facing some important square.
Have a cup of hot cappuccino and a tasty croissant, with a wonderful view in front of you. Or a wonderful Sunday (and Easter) brunch!
Ready for the fireworks show? 

H. 10.00 AM - The procession of the cart, also known as "Il Brindellone" for its pyrotechnic tower, starts. The cart is pulled by six oxen accompanied with a costume parade.
The departure is from Il Prato street and arrives in Duomo Square, in the space that lies between the Baptistery and the CathedralThe cart is pulled by six oxen accompanied with a costume parade.
Take your place along the way and watch the procession.

H. 11.00 AM – Ready for the firework!
When the "Gloria" is sung inside the church, the Archbishop uses the fire to light a dove–shaped rocket (called the “Colombina” and symbolizing the Holy Spirit).
The “Columbina” collides with the Cart in the square, setting off a spectacular firework

H. 1.00 PM - After the show it’s time to had lunch and relax.  You can eat in one of the typical florentine restaurant and prepare yourself for the an afternoon full of art and culture.
