ITINERARY DESCRIPTION

Florence hides secret gardens and magical places where history meets nature and where the Renaissance man engaged creating stunning scenographies. We will visit the Giardino of Boboli and the Giardino Bardini, where we will encounter green spaces, old trails and medieval walls. We will experience those feelings of amusement that Stendhal well described, “As I emerged from the porch of Santa Croce, , I was seized with a fierce palpitation of the heart; the wellspring of life was dried up within me, and I walked in constant fear of falling to the ground,” 

For the photographic contributions Kilometro Inverso would like to thank Giovanni Cappelli and Elisabetta Giuliani.
