Italian Style

It's a cloudy day in the Hamptons. Good time to reflect upon the sunny, warm days spent in Florence this past May. One day on a walking tour of the Southern bank of the Arno we happened upon the Bardini Gardens.

The gardens are very formal in style with lots of classical statues. However, there were a few areas that had a more natural look, including a fountain that spilled into a manmade stream with small fish.

The garden is on a very high hill with spectacular views of Florence. Down one path we found a cafe set up in the complex's Belvedere building portico. The perfect spot to savor the view and a cappuccino.
