This is rambling old fort with no outstanding features except for the stunning views. When we were there they had a very interesting sculpture exhibition. If you have the time for a stroll up and back meandering through Florence then yes it is a pleasant overall experience. If time is of the essence then do other more exciting attractions in stunning Florence

Start by taking a taxi to top of Forte di Belvedere, see that, then from exit of Forte, enter the garden (you’ll need to buy a garden ticket separately from the Forte admission).

We didn't go see the exhibit in the Fort but worth the money to see the view of Florence around the Fort - Then walk down to the Boboli Gardens and bring some wine and cheese

The site is wonderful, with a cultural component and a fantastic panoramic view of the city. However, the vigilante group makes a point of making people feel in a concentration camp. With an horrible and even intimidating posture, they prevent the experience from being very good.

This is a relatively uncrowded place compared to many other major sights in Firenze. It offers some of the best views of the city, which makes sense given its historical function as a defensive fortification designed to allow for watching for approaching enemies. It is lovely to stroll around the upper fortifications and there are often additional shows of contemporary art. This time it was large bronze sculptures of animals. It is a little bit of a walk, either up the steep walk from San Niccolo below or from the major road above. This probably accounts for how few tourists we saw at a time when the centre of Firenze was mobbed. (Usually my visits in late August have been quiet even in the city centre as most Italians are on holiday at the seaside. But this time it was surprisingly crowded.) Spend a couple of hours enjoying the views and perhaps also the nearby Boboli and Bardini gardens. Then saunter down the hill for a lovely lunch in San Niccolo.
