Medieval festivals and fairs
Private driver Limousine service with luxury minivans and minibuses for medieval festivals and fairs in Tuscany
Summer in Tuscany is like stepping back in time: almost all the cities and towns celebrate their traditions with re-enactments and medieval festivals. The streets and piazzas throng day and night with war horses, armored knights, crossbowmen, jesters, musicians, dancers, falconers, flag wavers, monks, peasants and buxom ladies. It's just impossible not to be enchanted while watching history unfold before your eyes. Our chauffeurs will pick you up from your accomodation in the whole Tuscany area with a luxury vehicle and he will take you comfortably to the medieval festival or fair. You will enjoy your "time travel" not worrying about schedules and driving.
Every year in the magnificent setting of the Certaldo, a beautiful village halfway between Florence and Siena, takes place one of the most important international street theatre festival, "Mercantia": a unique kermesse that blends together classic street theatre (pantomime, jugglers, firefighters, singers, etc.) with puppet theatre, experimental theatre, cabaret, prose, vertical aerial dance, acrobatic and any other form of dance, contemporary art installations and live craftsmanship. All the performances take place in squares, alleys, courtyards and gardens and you can also stroll through the numerous stalls at the large handcraft market where you can buy leather items, puppets, original masks and notebooks with medieval decorations and much more.
