Perhaps the most magical festival in Tuscany, held for honoring San Raneri, the patron saint of Pisa, - who is also the protector of the travelers -. The tradition is that on the sunset of June 16, thousands of candles that were previously put on Pisa's bridges, windows and doors are being lit up. Tourists who visit Pisa this time of summer, will be part of this absolutely magical tradition as they can see how the river Arno mirrors the candle lights. At11 pm, firework will crown the night.
