Did You Know That…Florentine Football (Soccer), or Football in ‘livery,’ (a special uniform) was played in Florence for the first time in 1530 when the city was besieged by the imperial troops of Charles V to provoke the enemy, who believed Florence was already exhausted and yielding?
During your stay in Florence, you can’t miss the experience of a Serie A, A.C. Fiorentina match at the Artemio Franchi Stadium!!! If you want more info about the game schedule, check out: www.fiorentina.it (fan website) or www.acffiorentina.it (official website).
