I wouldn't describe this large area as 'gardens', I think 'grounds' would be a better word. I was very disappointed not to see a single flower. It's winter, I know, but there are plenty of plants which bloom in February - and what about bulbs? If no beds devoted to flowers, some big tubs or planters with flowers would make... More

We went to view the gardens on our trip to Florence. Be forewarned, the garden is on top and it is a climb. When you get to the top, there is a fountain with Neptune holding a fork. The porcelain garden is further above. Some of the dinner settings are from the 17 th and 18 th century. This was... More

I've been in Giardini di Boboli in september. There weren't so many flowers but the atmosphere is wonderful. From the top of the garden you can see all the historic center of Florence, and then you can spent the time between fountains, new sculptures, old sculputures, hidden little garden and big flowered square. It's like being in a romantic medieval... More

We visited the gardens on a lovely sunny day in February and really enjoyed it. The views over the city are wonderful and it was such a delight to walk around the magnificent gardens. Probably due to the time of year it was quiet and I never felt crowded, it offered a very different experience to all the museums and... More

The views from the top of the garden are great, and the fountains are very nice, even though they were not running, maybe because it's winter? There's a great island fountain I recommend, which once again would look amazing in the spring and summer.

Initially we were speculating if we should spend 10 EURO for this garden as the entry fees, but I am glad we did. The garden is huge and very well maintained. Lot of good places to take lovely photos. We also visited the Porcelain museum within this garden. It took us nearly 3-4 hours to tour the entire place so... More

Nice gardens with shady walks, fountains and pools as well as grottoes and statues. This is our second trip to Florence and this time we expected the gardens to be more impressive I have to admit. Our walk was short but interesting, coming across sculptures and grottoes on the way but we also had some nice views both of the... More

I came here one afternoon after visiting the Uffizi, I found a nice bakery in Via Maggio and bought focaccia bread and I came to this garden to eat it and read my book. I sat on a bench looking at a pond, then walked around the garden. Didn't stay long because it was really cold, but I went to... More

Staying in Pitti

Neighbourhood Profile
Pitti
Pitti is a neighborhood characterized by art and history. Renaissance architecture such as Pitti Palace, which houses five museums alone, introduces visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues, fountains, and panoramic viewpoints. Around the garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through Florence as the cradle of the Renaissance. End the day with an aperitif in Piazza della Passera or the more romantic Forte di Belvedere, which offers an amazing panoramic view of the entire city.
