    What I love most about this formal garden are the controlled vistas and view corridors created by the designers. For me, it's not so much a garden, but an adventure in 3-D green space shaping. Eye-catching highlights include fountains, canopied walkways, and geometric labyrinthine hedges.

    Beautifully maintained gardens, with pathways weaving throughout them, and hidden little fountains, and stone carvings strewn about.

    Wonderful park in Florence. Great place for a slow stroll. Check out the many cool statues throughout the gardens

    Just a few minutes away from famous and crowded bridge Ponte Vecchio. Wear comfortable showes, use a map to orient yourself inside the gardens and - if you have enough time - go up to the Fortress "Forte Belvedere", follow the arrows and walk down hill through lovely villas and the Bardini Gardens. Fabulous view of Florence and surrounding Hills.

    The Boboli Gardens are behind the Pitti Palace on the opposite side of the Arno from The Duomo. They span more than 10 acres of land and features a large collection of sculptures. There is quite a bit of walking (some of it uphill), so do be prepared for that or to just get a taste of it before moving on.

    Lovely, lovely, lovely!!! They were (thankfully) nearly deserted when I visited and I enjoyed the beautiful vistas out over Firenze.

    Great way to spend the afternoon. Liked it better than the Pitti Palace even. Just don't go in expecting French gardens or you'll be as disappointed as some of the visitors we overheard.

    Vast, steepy, different ambiances, wide roads, small forest-like paths, fountains, high trees, vineyards... there is surely something that is going to impress you in the Boboli Gardens, behind the Firenze Palace..

    Beautiful gardens and perfect on a gorgeous day. Great views of Firenze and the Duomo. Great places to take photos of the scenery and statues.

    One of my favorite places I visited in Florence. It's a great escape from all the tourist and busy city streets.The garden is huge and has breath taking views of Florence's city and hills. I recommend coming here especially to get away from the busy city and relax for a few hours.

    This was my favorite spot in Florence. Take some cheese, wine, and take in the amazing views of the city. There are also tons of breath-taking statues. The gardens are huge and you can easily get lost ( a good thing). Take plenty of water with you.

    Great gardens surrounding the Pitti Palace. Nice peaceful strolls can be short or really really long depending on your preference.

    Great for losing oneself on an endless stroll.

Description

Inside this garden lies the Buontalenti grotto (1583-1593). Decorated with Mannerist-style scenes from Greek and Roman mythology, the grotto includes copies of Michelangelo's famous Slave series, the originals of which were transferred to the Galleria dell'Accademia . In the 17th Century, the garden was extended as far as the Porta Romana , adding the Vasca d'Isola (pond) at the centre with a fountain and a statue of Neptune. In the late 18th century, Zanobi del Rosso built the Kaffehaus pavilion. Admission: EUR 6 and includes entry to the Museo delle Porcellane, Galleria del Costume , Museo degli Argenti and the Museo e Galleria Mozzi Bardini.
