At the ancient Cathedral of Santa Reparata in Florence, today there are still excavations made Under Santa Maria del Fiore and the feast dedicated to it, which is held on October 8 of each year, in memory of its miraculous intervention on October 8, 406 AD, when the Florentines succeeded in rejecting the siege of the Ostrogoths.

Every year Florence recalls Santa Reparata with a parade in historical costumes in honor of the Florentine Republic and with an evening ceremony taking place in the Santa Reparata crypt. In addition, the City of Florence organizes free guided tours to the discovery of Roman Florence.

This festival that is celebrated with a historic procession starts at 15:45 from Palagio di Parte Guelfa and arrives at 16.30 to the Duomo’s churchyard. This is another great excuse and opportunity to visit the beautiful Florence.
