A tasty secret…

After days spent wandering around the city, climb the hill beyond Piazzale Michelangelo to see one of the most beautiful and exclusive panoramic views inside a secret garden. Reach Passo all’Erta, one of the oldest narrow streets in Florence that leads toward the countryside: the little door near Architect Poggi’s tower is the entrance to our garden.

You can admire Florence like you have never seen it, amidst the myriad scents of a unique sensory garden. Treat yourself to an exclusive break in this little corner of paradise and its imaginary world of many paths leading everywhere in the imagination.

Discover this magical place and decide where to enjoy your picnic.

The map will guide you through the lanes on a real and imaginary, sensory and introspective journey, discovering the world of EdV Garden and its history, actors and characters, and 26 installations.

EdV Garden awaits you to share beauty, nature and sustainability in a unique and original space.

The experience is only permitted with an authorized picnic (EdV Garden) available from the Angolo dell’Erta shop
