Boboli Gardens, together with Pitti Palace and Palazzo Vechio , can really show how sophisticated Medici’s of 1400s were!! A very large green space, an open museum!! I really enjoyed it!!

At the time of our visit, any flowers (and there weren’t a lot) were faded and some areas were not well-maintained. But we revelled in the history of this large space, the first example of Italianate Gardens, built for Cosimo Medici’s wife. The totally symmetrical...More

Not as good as the Bardini gardens but worth a look if you are already at the Pitti Palace. Very large grounds probably much more grand when Medici lived there than today. There are a few neat fountains and sculptures and nice places to rest...More

Beautiful place to spend an afternoon. Highly recommend this for couples and families. Lots of space to walk and take photos of the statues, gardens and scenery nearby.

visitors to the green lungs of spectacular Boboli
Gardens. Any visitor can wander through statues,

garden, treasures like the Museum of Natural History
of the Specola and Villa Bardini guide guests through
