GREAT views of Florence from here!

Not a top destination in Florence, but you miss it at your own loss. The gardens offer insight into palace life in the Renaissance, with manicured gardens, interesting sculptures... read more

If you are a lover of porcelain as I and my wife are, then this this museum by the Giardino del Cavaliere at the top of the Boboli Gardens. There are magnificent cabinet displays of porcelain from different countries and periods, all set off in a beautifully lit building that lets in natural light through its big windows. Even now,...

It is good place to have a rest from crowded museums. Firstly you could enjoy quite big park with sculptures and fountain. Secondly there is an opportunity of a simple ticket (museum of silver is included, we liked diamonds there) and ticket icluding several exibitions (plus an exibition of contemporary art). BTW try to find a persimmon :)

The Boboli garden is a nice way to escape the busy city and relax for a while, but it is quite expensive. It also was not as impressive as I had imagined it, but of course, we visited the garden in December and not in the summer time. Still, if you compare it to the gardens of Schönbrunn in Vienna...

We were spending several days in Florence and one of the places I had not seen our previous visit was the Piti Palace and Boboli Gardens. I visited in the morning and didn't have a lot of time, so I decided to just go to the gardens. I had read about the in the Dan Brown Book, Inferno, and was... More

We were in Florence at the beginning of July, and although we had had a terrible experience so far (it was extremely hot and way too crowded and we had really bad experiences in restaurants with rude waiters, etc.), but we thought that at least the Boboli Gardens would be nice. My husband and I love gardens and had seen... More

Planning on visiting the Giardini di Boboli? Make it a whole day. The grounds are vast. This is a great way to see a lot of art, wonderful views of the city and to get a serious amount of exercise. The grounds cover 11 acres. The price is very reasonable as well. The grounds vary between being shaded and being... More

Not a top destination in Florence, but you miss it at your own loss. The gardens offer insight into palace life in the Renaissance, with manicured gardens, interesting sculptures, and stellar views of Florence. It is worth a visit if you have several days in Florence. You won't regret it, but if time is limited, you may want to focus... More

This was a place that we happened to stumble upon when walking around the city. It was great, we had even managed to get discounted tickets. The sun had just begun to peep through. There are lovely long walks you can take through the gardens. Be sure to keep your eye out for the crane on the lake. There are... More

Staying in Pitti

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
