How to take a walk on the Villa Petraia terrace in Florence
Out-of-town palace Villa La Petraria is an impressive place though the exterior design is quite plain. But it's not the point, the garden makes the place unique. In spring the garden is full of beautiful flowers and in autumn fallen yellow leaves make the atmosphere around nostalgic and romantic.

How to do?

1. Go to Via di Castello.
2. Enter the villa territory. It is situated on a panoramic terrace where you can admire breathtaking viw of Florence.
