Wandering nurseries by bike: Florence and its surroundings (Tuscany/2)

This second itinerary among Florentine nurseries connects to the first one, Wandering nurseries: Florence and its surroundings (Tuscany/1); however, this one can be done by bike because there is a 15 minutes distance from one nursery to the other. We are in the area around Scandicci, on the Western hills of Florence. You will find roses, hortensias, wisterias, magnolias, ornamental apple and pear trees, succulents and cactuses and so much more. As with the first one, you can add visits to some of the gardens you’ll find along the way (Wandering gardens: Florence and its surroundings).


The map indicates the nurseries and the other locations of the suggested itinerary. For each nursery, we indicate its distance from the others, in order to facilitate you in the choice of the ones to visit and their order.
