The place is beautiful and sure deserves a visit. Visited on 20/09. One particular comment to the lady at the ticket office who doesn’t seem to be fitted to the job and is extremely rude and unpolite (not that it is particularly important but it...More

At one time these 'gardens' may have been impressive, but not now. There were no flowering plants, only a few disintegrating sculptures. The small, algae filled pool with a mini statue of Neptune, actually had weeds growing around Neptune. Grass was overgrown, then died. There...More

One of my favorite places in Florence is the Boboli Gardens. It's HUGE to walk around, so you can't really see it all in a day unless you want to be there for several hours. The grounds are beautiful, and offer incredible views of Florence.

For 10€ per person you'd think they could afford a few gardeners. Overgrown hedges, lawns need a mow and lakes and water fountains all very dirty.

I saw a photo of the gardens in a tourist leaflet while made it look so much better and more inviting than the reality. In fact they even look better on the map! Obviously after a hot summer the grass is a bit dried up...More

We had a fantastic 4 days in Florence, but this is the one thing that we'd advise people to skip. The gardens seem a bit run down & neglected. It's big & hilly, but they don't do much with all the space & I'm sure...More
