Walking on the hill of Bellosguardo, one of the most scenic hills above Florence, chosen by poets and artists of the past. Though all on paved roads, the feeling is of being suspended between the city and the countryside and makes you dream about aristocratic life here in the 19th century. End in Galluzzo.
