In Florence there is a wonderful park: the Rose Garden. A terrace overlooking Florence, where you can admire the most beautiful roses in the world. A mix of aromas and beauties to delight all the senses.
This morning of rain, on the occasion of the beautiful Corri la Vita, I passed by the Rose Garden, one of the most beautiful Florentine parks that, just below Piazzale Michelangelo, looks like a terrace over Florence. The emotion of a tourist who faces it for the first time is always great. But also for me, Florentine and tourist guide to Florence, the impact is always strong.
I love taking my daughter Margherita Artemisia to the Rose Garden. And she loves it, too, since she was little. Today was the first time even for little Michelangelo. I’m sorry that such a beautiful park is an off-the-beaten tourist destination. The Garden, by the way, is now open all year round and free admission. Inside there are species of roses from all over the world and lovingly cared for by the staff of the City of Florence. In addition, thanks to his legacy, numerous works of folon are present in the Rose Garden.
A short but exhaustive description of the Rose Garden is available on wikipedia while on the page of the City of Florence there are more details on times and openings.
P.S. As for the works of the Belgian artist I refer to the article published a few years ago on the pages of Corriere Fiorentino, local edition of Corriere della Sera.
