The Festa di San Lorenzo

Every August 10th, San Lorenzo celebrates the name day of the neighbourhood's patron saint with many festivities.

For the famous festival of San Lorenzo, Piazza San Lorenzo organises a big outdoor celebration with live music, free lasagne, and watermelon slices for everybody. The event begins at 7:00 p.m. (after a ceremonial Mass in the Basilica of San Lorenzo at 6:00 p.m.) when the market stalls that line the piazza during the day have packed up, leaving room for the party. The food is served later in the evening, at about 9:00 p.m. The Festa di San Lorenzo is the perfect way for tourists to experience the vibrancy of the real Florence.
