the garden of gods

the Medici garden of Pratolino between myths and legends

The olive tree of Athena, the vine of Bacchus, the Laurel of Daphne and Apollo and countless other stories.

Each plant carries with it a secret tale that finds its roots in Greek myths, Etruscan beliefs and medieval fantasies.

The gardens of Florence and Tuscany are the perfect stage to experience the show of Nature. So I created a short walk for my guests to learn about the essences of the Tuscan flora, not really from a botanical point of view, but through the myths, literature and ancient symbols that make nature our deepest culture.

It will be a path made of flowers, leaves, anecdotes and stories, to discover the hidden spirit of Tuscany in a relaxing cultural walk in the spectacular frame of the Giardino Mediceo di Pratolino, a UNESCO site located a few minutes far from Florence.
