What to do in Florence in June

Summer is arriving and you will have a wide choice on what to do in Florence in June. In fact, there is no better time to enjoy the city, especially in the open air, with its many cultural events, concerts and activities of all kinds. For us, the team of the Hotel Brunelleschi, 4 stars in the heart of Florence, it is a very intense period during which we always try to convey to our guests everything the city has to offer, even to those who are just passing in the city for one day or a few days.
