Enjoy a suggestive banquet at Antico Spedale del Bigallo, a medieval building founded in 1214 and located on the hills surrounding Florence.
Imagine to be in a XIV century florentine court and to be seated with the members of a noble family that, offering a rich banquet with jesters and musical interludes, greets the New Year.
Savour ancient recipes inspired to the medieval culinary tradition: spicy food and wines served according to the medieval costume will delight the palates of all the guests.
