LA FOCE GARDENS UMBRIA TUSCANY REVIEW

First stop: LA FOCE GARDENS

One of the great private gardens of Italy, Tuscany‟s La Foce‟s “absolutely breathtaking” and “fabulous” gardens are open every Wednesday afternoon for guided tours beginning on the hour at 3,4,5 and 6 pm (April-October, in winter at 3 pm only). Admission: €10.    The beautiful wisteria arbor has by now burst into bloom. Also to be enjoyed are the splendid views over the Val d‟Orcia and the iconic zigzag road that links farms to the villa. It was conceived for its practicality and beauty by La Foce owner Iris Origo and architect Cecil Pinsent. You can admire the use of travertine marble throughout the garden in the fountains, pathways and sculptures.
