Relax at the Boboli Gardens

My wife and I visited the Boboli Gardens upon our exit from the tour of the Varsari Corridor. The gardens are not that large, but it is a peaceful and relaxing place.

These hilly gardens are within the Pitti palace and are well worth a visit though I'm not sure if they are wheel chair friendly. We were there on a hot day and with others we were glad of the shade provided by various different types of trees. There are good views across the City which might whet the appetite for... More

Your ticket includes the Bardini gardens behind Boboli. The Boboli gardens are great but the bardini in the back are a pleasant surprise with some amazing vistas of Florence. Lots of walking and up hill paths. But worth the effort for the vistas.

To my surprise, a lot of museums in town are free the first Sunday of the month. Took advantage and visited both the gardens and museums here. There are several benches where people were having picnics. Also great views of Florence

The gardens offer green relax after yoru mined was "bombed" by impressions during sightseing of Florence. The gardens are not extraordinary, but short time for relax afte visiting Pitti Palace is reasonable and worth, especially at nice weather.

These beautiful old gardens are a delight and very peaceful. The fountains and statues are very interesting but it is the tranquility that makes them worth a visit. Also plenty of place for kids to explore

What a great place to spend a day meandering among the fountains, admiring the tall majestic cypresses, and taking in the view with a luck at the fort cafe! The collection of citrus plants in large terra-cotta pots is amazing!

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.
