Tucked away downstream in the hills south of Scandicci, is the Orto di Olmo, a small garden that has been maintained for years. In addition to the garden, there is a path through the woods that leads visitors through poems and special art installations. Access is free and the garden is located along the Fosso di Soglia, at the height of Villa Miranda.

Know Before You Go

There is a little library hanging from a tree next to a wooden cottage. A small locker with a guest book is inside. Write about your visit and, if you want, leave a little offer. To schedule a visit email: alessandro_vergari@yahoo.it.
