Be ready to hike up and down the hill, but this is a lovely garden, well tended, with interesting sculpture here and there and some ponds. We got rained on, but I think it would be a great place on a day with fine weather.

Beautiful place to visit on a sunny day. Loved the views at the top, and it was big enough to wander around. I enjoyed the classical sculptures - it was nice to be able to identify the myths. Don't expect absolutely perfectly manicured gardens and lots of flowers - it's a little overgrown in places but that's part of the charm. A good place to escape the city and relax for a while

Its a big place and you pay just 6 euros to go in. There are some nice views from the top of the gardens overlooking the city but that's about it. I went in May and really I expected some spring flowers or evidence of something flower ish but no....nothing. Plenty of green which looked in places a bit under loved.....cant recommend it, sorry, a stroll in a field would have been more interesting.

It is ten euros entry, so the 5 star rating I have given will instantly drop on a cloudy, cold or rainy day. But if it is a nice day, you can go there and sit on a bench or lie in the grass in the shade of a tree. It is a perfect way to rest your legs after lots of sightseeing and just enjoy some nature. Lots of bird song and people relaxing. There is also a peformance of people dressed as medieval folk. The play the trumpets, march through the gardens, and do sword fighting, flag throwing and so on.

Across the Arno river from the town center. Nice and relaxing to walk. Tranquility and silence away from the crowds.
