Photographer's Note

This path in the Boboli Gardens is in the terraced section leading down to the pool near the Roman Gate. This area is crisscrossed with various paths more or less in the woods, all surrounding the main route down the hill to the pool.

The Boboli Gardens were constructed initially in the mid 16th century behind the Pitti Palace, which was built by the Medici family as their new palace (they moved from what is now the Palazzo Vecchio). The Pitti Palace is now a large art museum, and the gardens behind it are open to the public. Beyond the interesting paths and sometimes spectacular views, there are also lots of sculptures here from the 16th-18th centuries.
