Sky High

While on my travels of Italy this Summer, I was lucky enough to visit Forte di Belvedere – the largest fortress in Florence. With no real intentions of visiting the location, I happened to stumble upon it after a 45min walk up a very steep hill to try and get some air and perspective of where I was on that 33 degree day… And I’m glad I did, the views are absolutely breath taking when you get high into the hills of Florence.

Giuseppe Penone Forte di BelvedereNow serving as an art gallery as much as a tourist attraction, the grounds of the fortress are currently decorated with an installation by Italian artist, Giuseppe Penone. One of the most acclaimed modern artists, Penone’s work of trees in various surrealist forms pop against the incredible background view of Florence.

Forte di BelvedereI can definitely see why Kim Kardashian and Kanye West chose Forte di Belvedere as their wedding venue, even after seeing all the extravagant churches in the city, this view and breeze feels even more decadent… but then again, maybe that’s because I was wearing all black clothing on a 33 degree day.
