Overview
Best time to visit
Early in the morning or late afternoon
Highlights
  • Skip the line to visit 111 acres of one of the original Renaissance gardens. Formal, manicured and beautiful, you may find yourself daydreaming on your walk - just as many a 16th century noble would have done
  • Garden highlights include a 6-meter Egyptian obelisk from the time of Rameses II, the magnificent grottoes, and the Fountain of Neptune
  • Use your ticket to visit not just Boboli Gardens - see also the Porcelain Museum and the Bardini Garden
Description

A wonderfully landscaped sculpture park behind the Pitti Palace, Boboli Gardens is an extravagant mix of nature, architecture, and sculpture - as well as various museums; it's many attractions rolled into one. This ticket allows you to skip the line, and also gives access to the Porcelain Museum and the nearby Bardini Garden. A trip here is a journey deep into the heart of Renaissance perfection.

As you take a passeggiata (stroll) along the geometric paths of this manicured greenspace, you’ll be surrounded by a near-perfect expression of Renaissance ideals: natural beauty, formally ordered, beautifully adorned architecture, and real and simulated ancient structures. In fact, this garden was one of the first landscape projects to define exactly what the Renaissance ideal of natural beauty would be. #trendsetter

A visit here is a great chance to step away from the bustle of the city and appreciate nature – there are some particularly impressive old oak trees. The influence of ancient culture can be seen all through the gardens, from Neptune’s Fountain, to the Fountain of the Ocean by Giambologna, to Giorgio Vasari's Large Grotto. And of course the Egyptian obelisk from 13th century BC. And throughout the gardens are sculptures and fountains, making you feel like a duke or duchess.

Your ticket also includes access to a number of other attractions in and around the area.

Boboli Garden

The original Renaissance garden, the 111-acre Boboli Gardens were a gift from Cosimo I de’ Medici to his wife, Eleonora di Toledo.

Bardini Garden

The lesser-known Bardini Garden is a smaller (and quieter) nearby garden, only recently opened to the public.

Museum of Porcelain

Located in the Casino del Cavaliere on a hilltop overlooking the gardens, these important and beautiful collections document the taste (and means) of the Florentine ruling class.

"Helidon Xhixha: in Ordine Sparso” - June 27 2017 - September 29 2017

Included in your ticket is this great temporary exhibition dedicated to contemporary artist Helidon Xhixha. Check out his iconic, abstract style of sculpture, through the manipulation of reflective stainless steel.

Insider tip

If you like climbing steps, check out the Giardino del Cavaliere, built above a defensive bastion designed by Michelangelo. It offers a lovely view over the city and surrounding countryside.

Contrary to expectation - there was no guide. The gardens appeared very neglected - many of the hedges were untrimmed. In addition the costs in cafeteria exorbitant.
I think the whole experience was very disappointing. Another detail
- the fountain was overgrown with weeds and not functioning.
One positive note - some of the sculptures were very interesting.

Beautiful gardens! So much to explore.. gorgeous greenery and loads of shade to take a rest and soak in the wonderful view. A few steep hills to climb, but so worth it. Would definitely recommend.
