The end of October can only mean one thing, Halloween is approaching! Here are 4 fun Halloween themed activities to do if you happen to be in the Tuscan region during this season.
Enjoy them with us!

Florence city center

On October 31st enjoy a night-time walking tour around Florence visiting the very sites mentioned in Dan Brown’s Inferno novels. This walking tour promises an action packed night with ghost stories, medieval ghosts and plenty of art history.

Zombies and ghost are called to take part in the first edition of the Halloween Run. This funny and healthy event in the “Cascine” Park will cover 5 kilometers (3 kilometers for families) starting from Piazzale della Piscina Le Pavoniere at 7:00 pm. Runners are free to participate in disguise and the best costumes will be awarded. A make up artist will transform your children into monsters and witches.

Lucca city centre

Between October 31 and November 4 2018, Lucca holds a whole host of events including zombie walks, meetings, workshops and films.

Borgo a Mozzano (Lucca)

Head to the village of Borgo a Mozzano in Lucca between the 27 and 31 October to experience their Halloween celebrations.

What can you expect? Well a lot, think monsters and ghouls, role plays and concerts all held on the Ponte della Maddalena, known as “The Devil’s Bridge”.

According to legend the stone mason who built the bridge realised he would not be able to complete it alone so he sought the help of the Devil who agreed – at the cost of the soul of the first person who crossed the bridge.
