We will meet at The Mall: the luxury outlet in Florence. We will leave on foot, leaving behind the shining windows of luxury shops to enter the park that overlooks the shopping center, from which we can see the top of the Sammezzano castle that we will reach through a beautiful walk in the park. Along the way I will show you the arboreal wonders of this place, which is home to about 200 California redwoods that have found their ideal habitat here. We will see not only the legendary twin sequoia: 8.4 meters in circumference for over 50 meters, but also other interesting and bizarre plant species such as the Chamaecyparis lawsoniana and the Sequoia gigantea, which together with the already mentioned twin sequoia, are part of the monumental trees officially recognized by the Tuscany region. From the outside we will see the Sammezzano Castle, the only example of orientalist architecture in Italy. At the end of the walk you can give yourself to unrestrained and convulsive shopping in one of the most exclusive shopping centers in the world.
I'm an Environmental Hiker Guide, I love this land and I know its history, culture and traditions. The Sammezzano Castle Park is one of the places in my life, a place where I love to go back whenever I can. Over the years I have learned to know every path, every distraught of this wonderful park that hosts the tallest sequoias of Tuscany and the legendary twin sequoia: 8.4 meters in circumference for over 50 in height. Thanks to my experience, I will take you on a wonderful walk immersed in nature showing you the natural and architectural beauties of this park with a magnificent past.

It is not impossible to cross, during our journey, peaceful fallow deer and roe deer that in this park roam free and undisturbed. A true oasis of peace.
