The Giardino dell'Iris is a botanical garden specializing in the cultivation of iris flowers, symbol of Florence since 1251. It is located on the corner of Viale dei Colli and Piazzale Michelangelo in Florence, Italy
We visited in late April but apparently were just a bit soon in the season as not many plants were yet blooming. At it's peak, it must be amazing, but the garden is understandably less interesting without it's blooms. There are many inclines and pathways...More
Went in for a quick stroll two weeks ago but it definitely would deserve a more leisure visit. Probably a gazillion different irises and so very pretty. I preferred the Rose Garden but this was lovely too and very special this time of the year.
I was in the Garden of Irises in the middle of May. Unfortunately there were not so many flowers, but those I've seen were very beautiful. The blooming period is from the middle of April till the middle of May. You can buy Irises' seeds...More
The garden is only open for a limited time period during the spring when the irises are in bloom. It is reached from Piazzale Michelangelo (there is a small sign at the far end). You take stairs downwards into the garden.
I was there early...More

The iris garden is fantastic during flowering season (late april till late may). For the first tine, this year the garden is open off flowering season; while it lacks the flower magic, it's definitely a quiet place on the hill where you can enjoy olive...More
Just outside the ancient walls of Florence, Viale Michelangiolo starts. It is a winding road rimmed by wonderful poplars and holm oaks. The long ascent opens up to the most beautiful and famous panoramic viewpoint of Florence: Piazzale Michelangelo, where an elevated terrace offers visitors an incomparable and breathtaking view of the entire city from above. During good weather, Piazzale Michelangelo provides
visitors with a serene space surrounded by the amazing landscape, better if accompanied by a fresh gelato from a local kiosk. During night, visitors will be dazzled by the warm lights of the capital of the Renaissance. Spend a second with the silent Romanesque beauty of the Basilica of San Miniato al Monte: the one that wishes good morning and good night to Florence!
