On the hills around Florence Villa Gamberaia boasts sweeping views over Florence and the Arno valley and sits amidst a spectacular Renaissance Garden. You can get there from Piazza San Marco with Bus nr.10 and then a short walk. www.villagamberaia.com

We caught the bus from Florence, which was very pleasant and easy, and walked the short way to the garden, which was a lovel walk. The garden was very well tended, and had amazing views over Florence, and the surrounding coutryside. Lovely way to spend a morning!

We loved visiting this garden. There are beautiful views over Florence. We went in late April and so there weren't many flowers in bloom, though there was a very peaceful atmosphere.

What a wise decision to make! The weather was great and on walking up to the Villa the surrounding countryside was so pretty. The gardens are stunning and we were just... More
