Visit of the Garden
After a long day of visiting museums. After the heat and the fatigue. After the boutiques, the market and the pizza: EdV will be the place that offers you Florence on a silver platter, like you have never seen it before. The garden will be ready to welcome and pamper you with a gentle green caress: EdV is a privè-garden, just two steps away from Piazzale Michelangelo.
In fact, if Piazzale Michelangelo is considered to be like a ‘terrace’ upon Florence, EdV Garden – being higher than the Piazzale and yet very close to it, is by all means a privileged observation spot, unique in its kind, just like a privè. While sitting in the garden and sliding your gaze from east to west, you’ll be able to admire the skyline of the most significant and mesmerizing places in the city: the Santa Croce Basilica, Palazzo Vecchio, the Duomo, Giotto’s Campanile, Ponte Vecchio, Santa Maria Novella, Forte Belvedere. Needless to say that this sight becomes even more extraordinary during golden hour, as the sun sets perpendicularly behind the horizon. Its last rays, jam-packed with chromatic effects, dash intensely on the waters of the Arno river, coloring and painting the banks and the architecture of Ponte Vecchio.
So, is it just like a movie? It certainly is, maybe even better. After choosing your preferred spot, sitting comfortably and relaxing with a glass of red wine, bubbly fresh prosecco or tea in your hand, you will be able to enjoy the peace and be delighted by a unique experience. You will be surrounded and seduced by stimulating perfumes, especially during spring and summer evenings, as the air brings along all the scents from the garden. You’ll be able to listen to the many stories this garden has to tell you: they are one, but they are also many…
