Book this offer

We are thrilled to invite all our guest to enjoy with us a unique experience the show of

The Explosion of the Cart from our terrace. 

One of the most ancient traditions in Florence is memorable for splendid fireworks display 

The explosion of the cart is a special Easter ritual which takes place in Florence in front of the Duomo (Cathedral) every year on the Holy Sunday.

The cart, which is pulled by a pair of oxen adorned with flowers garlands and escorted by soldiers, musicians and flag bearers, reaches Piazza del Duomo. A rocket resembling a dove, the Colombina, flies out of the church setting on fire the big cart on the square starts exploding with colourful fireworks

There are also many special dishes to enjoy in Florence during Easter. First of all, it's lamb, most often roasted and served as the main course. You will also see plenty of eggs prepared in various ways. Boiled and colored eggs are taken to Easter Mass to be blessed. Among desserts, it's worth to try the Colomba: a cake shaped like a dove covered in icing and almonds, with candied fruit inside.

A unique experience, all our guests will be invited on our terrace to enjoy the spectacle of the Scoppio del Carro
