Firenze♥️ so much history and pieces of art to enjoy.

just now comment 1 star 11

Boboli gardens are quite large and have hidden places that might not show themselves at the first glance over the map.

#buontalenti grotto is one of these places. purely fascinating little corner, right out of a fairy tale. like most artwork in #florence, the grotto was commissioned by the #medici and it is filled with magical, allegorical elements. ☆
in just a few square meters there is so much symbolism packed, it will baffle you. i mentioned just a few...

the entrance, with stalactites and stalagmites, is flanked by the gods ceres and apollo.
the rocks and stalactites give the feeling of a natural cave, but if you look closer you will see they are depicting shepherds with their goats and sheep. the surreal atmosphere is completed by the ceiling frescoes of fantastic creatures and animals.

then you have in the center of the grotto scenes from the trojan war, with paris and helen depicted in a fatal embrace.

in the corners you will see replicas of michelangelo's prigioni representing the transforming power of nature.

😍 🌊 located on the north bank of the arno river, the st. regis florence @stregisflorence occupies a wonderful location with sweeping views of the city and river. pk’s taking in the scenery from one of the terraces in our royal suite, you can see the famous ponte vecchio bridge in the background @stregishotels if you’re impressed with this view, just wait till you see the suite (hint: it’s quite divine) so stay tuned for interior pics! @marriottrewards @marriotthotels @spg #liveexquisite #royalsuite #stregisflorence #stregis #florence #italy #arnoriver #pontevecchio #panoramicview #pkslist #800daysaroundtheworld
