There is a place in the splendid Florence wrapped by an atmosphere of strange magic, a sort of enchanted garden, located under Piazzale Michelangelo. The simple chance made me discover this urban heaven. It had been a boring day. I decided to end it walking until Piazzale Michelangelo. I never reached the goal I had set, at halfway I stopped near a terrace. There were some little benches very pleasant. On one of these a bronze man was sat, work of Jean-Michel Folon. On the right side, exactly in front of Folon man, there was a frame which enclosed a part of the Florentine panorama.
San Gimignano is a small, medieval town in the province of Siena, Tuscany. Driving from Florence, the thousand-year old towers of the city, wink from behind the hills, sending out an invitation to step into a perfectly preserved medieval world.
The foundation of San Gimignano dates back to ancient times, the first historical document mentioning the name of the town dating from August 929
The seaside is not far from Florence. The season starts in May and ends in October if the weather allows it. If you take the road north, for Versilia for example, it’s only an hour away drive on the highway. If instead you want to enjoy a more beautiful sea, that even if it takes longer to reach, the itinerary is one of the most beautiful in Tuscany and the journey takes a little longer. The satisfaction afterwards is beyond compare. One of these itineraries to reach the Tyrrhenian coastline, south of Piombino, the one of Follonica and Castiglione della Pescaia, in Maremma and along the old Volterrana for Montespertoli
