The cemetery stands in an area with a slight slope immersed in a wooded area and crossed by the river Greve. The monumental construction of the memorial, placed at the top of the expanse of white crosses arranged on the hillside. The surrounding area, characterized by intense and luxuriant vegetation, gives the place a valuable environmental and landscape value. Two entrances from the Via Cassia converge, through an exedra path, at the entrance consisting of two single-storey mirrored buildings covered in white marble which house the concierge and a reception room for visitors. After crossing the bridge over the Greve, cypresses, plane trees and oaks surround the burial ground which extends slightly downhill. The 4,402 corpses arranged in eight sections are individually marked with Latin crosses for the fallen of the Christian religion and with stars of David for those of the Jewish religion.

Palazzo Pitti, in the heart of the Oltrarno in Florence, was the palace of the rulers of Florence and Tuscany: this is where the Medici and Lorraine families lived, as well as the Savoy family after Italian Unification, when Florence was the capital. The splendid palace was built on the request of the banker Luca Pitti in 1440: Giorgio Vasari attributed the project to Brunelleschi but this has not been historically proven, even though he would have been a collaborator of the celebrated architect Luca Fancelli in designing the Renaissance building, with its large piazza in front, which at the time was the largest private residence in the city.

The Bardini Garden , The most beautiful panoramic view over Florence. The splendid location over the city Florence gave the Villa it’s original name, “Villa Belvedere”. “…A delightful and vast garden, which, even though it lies on a rather steep hill, is comfortably accessed by carriage on a convenient and beautiful road…” Thus cited a Florentine guide at the end of the 1800’s, and remaining true to this day. The Bardini Garden offers a remarkable panorama over Florence that occupies a large part of a hill bordered by the medieval walls of the city. Tracing its history back to medieval times, the Bardini Garden belonged to a series of wealthy families. Originally constructed for agricultural purposes, it was transformed over the course of the centuries into a splendid Italianate garden. In the beginning of the 1900’s it was used by Stefano Bardini (known as the “prince of the antiquarians”) as an impressive setting to entertain his well-to-do clientele. The Bardini Garden is comprised of three styles of gardens representing different eras: The Italianate Garden, with the magnificent baroque staircase; The English Garden which, with its exotic elements, represents a rare example of an Anglo-Chinese landscaping; The Agricultural Park in which an orchard and the iconic wisteria pergola are located.

Florence. The church of San Miniato in Florence is located above Piazzale Michelangelo and offers a beautiful panorama of Florence. Built between the 11th and 13th century, the exterior of the Church of San Miniato is decorated with green and white marble in geometric patterns similar to the facades of Santa Croce and Santa Maria Novella. A mosaic from the 12th century decorates the facade over a central window. With your back to the front of the church one can enjoy an impressive view of Florence even higher up than the beautiful Piazzale Michelangelo. From this lofty height, one can see from the Duomo and Palazzo Vecchio, to the last standing parts of the medieval walls that once surrounded Florence.

Niccolò Machiavelli (1469 - 1527) it is one of the largest and most interesting figures of the Renaissance. Varied and cultured writer, he reserved his interests above all for politics, which first of all, he considered a science in its own right. The house of S. Andrea in Percussina, a hamlet of San Casciano, belonged together with several farms to the writer's family. Here he took refuge after being exiled from Florence in 1512, when the Medici family returned to power in the city. You can enjoy the typical tuscan kitchen

The springs at San Filippo are gorgeous! The calciferous formations, waterfalls and small pools of hot water surrounded by the woods just outside the small town of Bagni San Filippo in the Val d'Orcia will seem to take you to another world. The good thing is that there is an easy path that runs along the river and provides easy access. Access to these hot springs is completely free! We love to share these little treasures ;-) The area is quite long, but the first pools you find along the path near the road are shallow and therefore do not maintain their heat for long. If you follow the path further into the woods, you reach the massive formation of calcium and waterfall that has earned the nickname of the "White Whale". Here, the hot water of the springs meets the cold water of the river, giving the water a white-blue color that contrasts deeply with the green woods, creating a fascinating setting, particularly once the weather cools down and the warm water meets the cold air. If you keep walking further, you'll reach the rest of the pools that form the full Fosso Bianco right by the paid spa where their pool releases water down into the outdoor pools, increasing the water's temperature. The area has countless pools in which to sit down and relax!

Rapolano Terme is a small village that is home to an important spa, already known in Roman times. The thermal spring waters are two: the Terme di San Giovanni, in the open country, and the Ancient Querciolaia not far from the center. In addition to the two spas, Rapolano presents the natural and archaeological sites that are worth visiting. Not far from the Terme di San Giovanni it is the archaeological site of Campo Muri, with the remains of a settlement from the Etruscan and Roman times with a votive pit called Buca delle Fate, where they celebrated the cult of the thermal waters. Near the Terme Querciolaia is the Water Park, a park dedicated to the travertine formed with limestone deposits of thermal waters, there are sculptures and findings. The “Back Donkey” and “Polecat” are two natural areas created by the thermal waters. Also worth seeing is the Museum of Ancient Grange, the grain storage restored to its splendor and the Oil Museum to find out machinery and equipment of one-time farming. Not far also the village of Modanella with the medieval castle.

San Gimignano is a small walled medieval hill town in the province of Siena. Known as the Town of Fine Towers, San Gimignano is famous for its medieval architecture, unique in the preservation of about a dozen of its tower houses, which, with its hilltop setting and encircling walls form "an unforgettable skyline". Within the walls, the well-preserved buildings include notable examples of both Romanesque and Gothic architecture, with outstanding examples of secular buildings as well as churches. San Gimignano rises on top of a hill 334m above sea level, clearly visible in the distance with its many towers. Today 13 towers remain of the 72 towers of the fourteenth century, when every well off family built a tower to show its economical power. Towers were used in a different way. Rooms were very narrow, generally 1x2m; there were a few openings, and the walls, about 2m thick, assured cool temperature in summer and hot in winter. Almost all the towers were built next to other buildings in perishable materials such as wood and earth. In medieval times the tower was the higher symbol of power, mainly because the building process was not simple or cheap at all. Materials needed to be dug and transferred to town, and the building site arranged. Only the richest families of merchants and moneylenders could afford the works of construction. The house occupied just part of the tower. The ground floor consisted of workshops, the first floor of bedrooms, and the higher level of the kitchen. The destination of each room followed the simplest security rules. The kitchen, where a fire was usually lighted, was located on the highest live-in room, to escape in case of accidental fire.

Walk its 16th Century Walls. A great way to start exploring Lucca is to start with a walk along the old city walls, Lucca's most distinctive element known worldwide. Why are they famous? They are the only ones in all of Italy to be completely accessible on foot, bike or by car (even if cars are now forbidden, the local police does go on their rounds by car). This means over 4 kilometers of panoramic walkway overlooking the city of Lucca - both in and out - and those secret corners that you won’t be able to discover by walking through the small streets of the old city center.

Time and history, art and lifestyle, people and their stories over thousands and thousands of years: this is Volterra.

 An Etruscan and Roman capital, a pearl of medieval art, crossroads of people, a coffer of artworks, the town dominates the beautiful surroundings, pristine and moving, of the Valdicecina.

 Built on a hilly ridge of the Pliocene, between the valleys of Era and Cecina, surrounded by a double row of walls, the Etruscan and the medieval ones, Volterra, in the province of Pisa, (545 m. a.s.l.) is one of the most important centers of Tuscany, both for the presence of monuments that witness to the civilizations that have succeeded one another during 30 centuries, and for the production of Tuscan alabaster. The objects made with it today are among the most typical and traditional products of Italian craftsmanship.

Pisa is known worldwide mostly just for its Leaning Tower, but we encourage you not forget that there are many other reasons for visiting this wonderful city. Piazza dei Miracoli, the Square of Miracles with its Leaning Tower it's a marvellous place. The Cathedral is a wonderful example of Pisan-Romanesque architecture whose white-and-grey marble façade has been decorated with polychrome marble, creating a great first impact. The interiors, on the other hand, have been realized with white-and-black marbles. The bell tower, about 50 meters high, is known worldwide for its unintended tilt to one side. Why? The ground is too soft underneath! It is inadequate to support the tower's structure and weight and this was already evident from the very start, before it was even finished.

Chianti generally begins with a stop in Greve, where you cannot only explore the flavors of the vineyards but also art, history and culinary delights all set in a quaint and characteristic backdrop. Greve is along the Chiantigiana full of great views and breath-taking scenery.

The Barberino Designer Outlet is a shopping village: located in a suburban area, only 30 minutes from Florence! It looks like a small town with many "houses" side by side that lodge the shops. Among the advantages of an outlet like the Barberino Designer Outlet is undoubtedly the high concentration of stores of major brands in a limited area. You'll find Italian and international famous brands such as Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, Cavalli, Patrizia Pepe, Michael Kors, Pinko, Furla, but many international ones such as Guess, Twin Set, Desigual, Hugo Boss, Nike and Adidas, to name a few among the best known. Shopping can make you hungry, especially if you choose to stay at Barberino Designer Outlet all day. Don't worry, you can take a break at one of the bars or restaurants in the center of the outlets. You will find pizza, traditional Tuscan dishes, but also a point of Asian cuisine if you prefer more inventive dishes. If you visit the Outlet with your children, there is a playground where they can romp a bit between one purchase and the other (it is open to children ages 3 and up).
