Pistoia is a very beautiful city and I had the good fortune to discover it in the course of a blog tour organized on the occasion of the manifestation Another park in the city.
In the evening, as soon as we arrived, we took a ride around the city: very pretty, full of people and with all the illuminated monuments.
Our accommodation for the night was modern and with a magnificent view on the countryside: il Fienile della Farnia.
The next morning we went downtown and we found that in the main square and some streets side were laid out during the night, a magnificent and comfortable lawn of real grass.
We hiked a bit ‘for the center and we went to see educational farm where there were many animals including donkeys, dogs, cats, sheep, …
I even managed to take a goat in my arms. It was really soft, but I could not keep it so much because it wanted to escape.
It was great to eat on the lawn and do the picnic. I enjoyed it a lot, even if did very hot.
In the afternoon we visited Villa Rospigliosi who has a beautiful green lawn with paths made of white stone.
It seemed almost an extension of the city. Now is private and can not be visited, but it was very nice to make the wheel a thousand times on the soft lawn.
Farm holiday Abbonbrì
In the evening we went to the Farm holidays Abbonbrì where the owners have shown us and did discover us a lot of plants and wild herbs of which they are passionate. Lavender, lemon balm, rosemary, fennel and a thousand others. All characteristics and different uses and very intense aroma. Were very similar to sauna essences who my mom sells online!
The dinner was really super! Appetizers, pasta, meat, sweets … one more good than the other.
The next day we went by the Brothers Mati. They are the owners of a hatchery we visited. It was very interesting to listen to their speeches that interested me a lot and taught me many new things.
I would have liked to try the cooking classes who organize for children with a chef as a true teacher, sin live so far away! It must be very nice learn to create different dishes and do everything yourself. Even watch a show cooking must be very interesting, maybe sooner or later I’ll get the chance!
It was a very nice weekend and interesting and I thank sincerely Armando for inviting me to know and live his city!
