The Bardini Gardens are much smaller than the sprawling Boboli Gardens, and a ticket to one gets you entrance to both. Furthermore, the views of Florence from the Bardini Gardens are fantastic. That said, both gardens involve a ton of walking and there are better things to do in Florence.

it is the garden of an old villa, it overlooks the city of Florence, but it si lower than piazzale Michelangelo and the view is neared; it is famous for the great wisteria which flourishes in May

I spent an hour or so here walking around and then writing in my journal. The views are beautiful! Definitely a must to relax and enjoy a day of life!

On our first visit to the Boboli Gardens in 2011, there wasn't the option to also see the Bardini Garden on the same ticket. The entrance is around a 15 minute walk from the western gate of the Boboli Gardens, via a few streets, so you can visit both in succession. The garden is built on a heavily sloping site,... More

A must in Florence ! Head to the Bardini museum before the gardens and enjoy the art and craft of Italian haute couture master Roberto Capucci. Then head to the gardens which shows you one of the best views of Florence in a calm and peaceful setting.

A gentle climb to the beautiful views over Florence. There is a small cafe at the top to stop for a drink and/or food (the paninis are incredibly small). A lovely couple of hours.

go all the way up the hill by car or by tourist bus, and enjoy the view! You will not regret it! Choose a sunny day if you have the option

We weren't really sure what to expect when we bought our ticket for the gardens but we are glad that we stopped off here. The gardens are MASSIVE and you could easily spend a day here just strolling round and taking in the different sights and sounds. We spent around 3 hours here but it really wasn't enough. Be prepared... More

We had some time so thought we chanced upon this park. Besides the slightly pointless lift which just takes you to the bottom of the garden paths (we were feeling lazy and it was hot, so would have loved for a lift to take us all the way to the very top!), but joking aside the garden is lovely.

Staying in Pitti

Neighborhood Profile
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.
