The Bardini Garden

The wonderful Bardini Garden, which provides one of the most beautiful views of the city of Florence, is situated only a few hundred metres from Costa San Giorgio and the back gate of the Boboli Gardens, through which the main characters in Dan Brown’s Inferno escape into pathways.

The Bridges of Florence

The City of Florence is divided in two by the river Arno, but its charming bridges give it a harmonious sense of continuity between the two sides. All of Florence’s bridges share centuries of history. The oldest and most famous is certainly Ponte Vecchio, mentioned by author Dan Brown in his novel Inferno. However, the other bridges are also important and noteworthy, given their stories, particularities, and that they have become real monuments.
