Have you heard about Le Cascine? The truth is that many people haven’t. And it’s somehow fun, because Le Cascine is nothing but one of the largest parks in Europe, as well as one of the most beautiful.
Il Parco delle Cascine began to be built in 1563 under the command of Cosimo I de’ Medici. Almost five centuries later, its breathtaking English-Style gardens are a delight to the visitors’ eye.
You can hire a bike and say goodbye to the stress and worries of today’s lifestyle, always between 9 am and 7 pm. Also, if you haven’t seen the new Opera House, you can kill two birds with one stone: The fancy, modern building was built near the Vittorio Gui garden (named after the founder of Maggio Musicale Fiorentino), close to the park’s entrance.
Florence has a green heart that not everybody knows. From Il Salviatino we invite you all to discover it.
