ICE SKATING in Florence, Italy

ICE SKATING AT THE PARTERRE SQUARE

It is approaching Christmas time and Florence rediscovers the magic of skating on the ice rink at the Parterre Square of Liberty. Enjoy a classic night of ice skating at the facility in the city, which from 1996 until now, has seen the first structure in the Piazza Santa Croce and then at Parterre, with a growing success each year.

The Florence rink, consisting of a 20x30 track, is capable of accommodating 200 skaters at a time and is kept cooled by a large generator which can keep the temperature at a constant -10 °. Colored lights and background music offer a touch of atmosphere to attract and welcome even the youngest skaters. The ice skating rink will be available to rent shoes at the set price of to 6 euros (4 euros for those who own skates) per time.
The rink will be open on the mornings between: 9am / 10am 10am/11am, 11.30am / 12.30pm; between the hours of the afternoons: 2pm/3pm 3:30pm / 4:30pm 5pm/6pm 6:30pm / 7:30pm; and during the evenings for a skate between: 9pm/10pm 10:30pm/11:30pm and Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 12am until 1am.

As usual for pupils and students in primary schools, middle and high in the morning time between 9am-10am, will be able to enjoy free skating (unless it is accompanied by their teachers). The area is easily reachable by bus shuttles to and from the Historical Center and has a great area of underground parking available.

On Christmas Day, the skating rink will be dedicated to the children, who will be able to enter the rink and be greeted by Santa Claus, and during the Epiphany.
As every year, on the night of Saint Sylvester, the ice skating rink will be a natural meeting point for many Florentines to drink and ring in the new year again.
