one of the most beautiful of the hills around Firenze, can be reached
by taking the gently-ascending road of the same name. The narrow road
is flanked by ivy-lined stone walls.
About halfway up the hill there is an interesting tabernacle depicting
a Madonna with Child, which was erected upon the wishes of Grand Duke
Leopoldo II. This is the spot where he and his two children miraculously
escaped unhurt when the carriage in which they were travelling overturned.
