The Firenze Marathon will begin in Piazza Duomo: video

duomoThe Firenze Marathon route has always been considered one of the most beautiful in the world. And beginning this year it will be truly special. A #Firenzemarathon2016 even more exciting will be here on November, 27 for its 33rd edition.
The starting and finish lines will both be in the heart of the city, in Piazza Duomo. The city's other important piazzas will offer various services including restoration check-points, warm-ups, massage services, and baggage storage in designated areas to show their support for the runners. The whole city center of Florence will truly be a festival on marathon day.

The race will begin in Piazza Duomo, where the over ten thousand race runners will take off in the direction of Via Martelli, then Via Cavour towards edges of the city center where they will retake last years' route to then return, after one single loop of around 42km and 195mt that will have passed all of the most beautiful Florentine monuments, ending again in Piazza Duomo. There, the city will dedicate a celebration to all those who cross the finish line.

The idea is to make Florence on race day into an even more prestigious showcase and attraction for everyone (athletes, escorts, families) arriving to the city in order to attend and support the marathon!
