This view of the valley of the River Arno is taken from the terrace of the Villa Tolomei beyond Bellosguardo, south of Florence. The village on the left is Soffiano, with Signa just visible in the distance. Farther away the blue mountains near Pisa rise from the plain, and the peaks of the Carrara are seen against the red after-glow.
