*******ourvideosite****/View/V408 Italy travel: Florence, the Medici Palace's Boboli Gardens. The path less traveled on the Medici Palace grounds. A most interesting statue: a giant face mask? Very cool discovery, nonetheless. We decide not to go for the walk *down* the hill, only because we know we would need to climb back *up* the hill, and we would be as tired as those people who couldn't get out of the way of a nice piece of cinematography. Then, now THAT'S a bath tub! and the He must have REALLY annoyed her statue. There were lots of interesting statues as we walked around the estate, the most dramatic of which was the woman holding the head of a man in one hand, and what appears to be the manhood of the man in the other hand.
*******ourvideosite****/View/V410 Italy travel: Florence, the Medici Palace. More of the Boboli Gardens of the Medici Pitti Palace, including more views of the Florence skyline as we come off the hill.
