Florence. A truly beautiful city packed with culture (and people!) and a garden from the book. So we had to pop along and visit it right?
The gardens stand behind the Palazzo Pitti and have a long history. They are also vast so we took a photo of the map to help us with our orientation.
Home to amazing sculptures, some were part of a modern exhibition, beautiful buildings and incredible architecture.
And the views out onto the landscape were just as pretty as everything inside.
Oh and we became statues ourselves for a moment……. We are the two on the left!
This last area of the garden was our favourite as it was more in keeping with a herbaceous border. Filled with Dahlias and other perennials. Gav caught me taking this photo with my phone. I let him wield the big camera that day.
A lovely few hours spent in a very lovely Italian garden.
