This next Sunday, September 8th, two different celebrations will be going on. The first one will be the Birth of the Virgin Mary and the second (though not less important), the commemoration of the first stone that was put for the building of the Cathedral this same day back in 1296. 717 years has passed since then!
For that reason, this day the Cathedral terraces will be opened from 1 pm. to 4 pm. so that the public can go up and watch some unknown views from the inside of the temple and the very Florence. The Campanile will open its doors from 8:30 am. to 5:30 pm. as well as the Baptistery, from 8:30 am. to 2 pm. You will also be able to visit the Museo dell ‘Opera del Duomo from 9 am. to 1:45 pm.
Also, the last concert from the series O Flos Colende will take place at the Cathedral at 9:15 pm. in order to celebrate the foundation of the Opera. So, who says Sundays are boring? From the team of Il Salviatino, your luxury hotel in Florence, we encourage you to be part of such a remarkable event, feel like being a part of the town’s history and just have fun.
