The gardens are very good, but getting around is complicated for two reasons. Number one there is no a good map, and sometimes you get lost and do not have any signs to help you. Number two is that it requires a lot of climbing and going down, using both stairs and paved slopes. Museums included into admission ticket are... More

One of the most beautiful walks in Florence, the view from the Giardino is priceless, and the park itself a dream. And it is right in the heart of the city!

Beautiful gardens bit challenging with a buggy at times as some very sloppy bits. Stunning views of the Duomo and the monuments of the city.

But having said that, they were still beautiful and worth the diversion, I would love to see them in the spring or summer though

Pitti Palace tour includes both Boboli gardens (adjacent) and Bardini (a walk down the hill). If you have time, do all three. Start at the palace, walk through Boboli, then exit in the upper left corner of the gardens and walk to Bardini. After Bardini, you can continue down the hill (turn right when you exit) to the river (which... More

This is another garden that is included in the Pitti Palace Garden ticket. After we climbed up to the rose garden of the Boboli Gardens we exited near Fort Belvedere and strolled through this lovely garden. Great views of the city. It was November and I am sure that late spring would be a much a much better time to... More

The gardens in the palace are beautiful. They offer platforms to see Florence from a different angle but also offer a reprieve from the hustle of the main square. There is a lot of walking and climbing so be prepared with comfortable shoes!

In the end of October, there is nothing to special to see, especially if you come from the Boboli Gardens. Yes, there is a view to the city, but if you´re going to the Piazzale de Michelangelo, you can spare the time, and not enter here. Surely it is better during springtime. The entrances to the garden are quite well... More

Neighborhood Profile
Pitti
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.
