Tuscany - Tarot Garden

In Tuscany, on the south side of the Gravicchio hill, there is a magical park - the Giardino dei Tarocchi. The garden, created by French-American artist Niki de Saint Phalle, enchants with unusual shapes and sculptures made of steel or concrete, which are decorated with mirrors, glass and coloured ceramics. Niki de Saint Phalle drew inspiration from the famous architect Gaudí and his unique works in Barcelona. Through this inspiration, he created a spiritual journey through the garden, accompanied by these sculptures, which are metaphors for life. Also notable are the quotes and thoughts that are carved into the concrete along the park's paths to guide visitors with their inspirational power.

If you will already be in Puglia, we definitely recommend including a visit to the blue jewel of Italy, the town of Casamassima, in your itinerary. The blue colour of the town's houses has its origins in the 17th century, when the town escaped a plague epidemic under the protection of the Madonna of Constantinople. As an expression of gratitude, the town's buildings were painted blue to match the shade of her coat.
