One of the main sports events to be held in the capital of Tuscany each November is the Florence Marathon. The success of the race is proven by the fact it has already reached its 27th edition and by the large number of runners willing to attend to it each year, amounting to some 6000 participants. Some tend to believe the Florence Marathon is the second best route in Italy, only after the Rome Marathon, though tastes are, as we know, debatable. However, the Florence Marathon tops the bill, as it were, by force of the fact its route is pegged out by some of the most important landmarks in the city, such as Piazzale Michelangelo, Piazza del Duomo, Piazza della Signoria and Piazza Santa Croce.
