August in Florence: Lungarno Collection recommends the best events in the city for an unforgettable Italian summer

Lungarno Collection loves to pamper its guests: not only in its luxury hotels, but also recommending the best events to enjoy in the city. We selected some special events for the month of August, for a truly unforgettable Florentine summer.

The first one, called “Searching for Utopia”, depicts an enormous turtle. The second, called “The man who measures the clouds”, depicts a man intent on measuring clouds.

The Hotel Lungarno‘s guests can live more intensely the proximity to the Arno river with “Like in America”, a theater show held by the river on August 30 and 31. The show presents stories of Florence.

The music and theater show “The Season”, in Villa La Pietra, is the right event for guests of the Hotel Continentale who wish to spend a romantic evening in Florence. Pianist Kirill Gerstein and tenor Toby Spence will perform on August 22 and 23.

Last but not least, the Portrait Firenze hotel recommends to its guests one of Italy’s most awaited family-friendly events: on August 16th, the nearby town of Siena will host the most famous “Palio di Siena” , an equestrian competition of Medieval origins that will engage in battle the town’s districts
