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 Costume Gallery, Museum of Silver and Porcelain, 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 Costume Gallery, the Silver and Porcelain Museums, 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.

Costume Gallery

Located in the Palazzina della Meridiana, this is the only museum in Italy dedicated to the history of high fashion.

Museum of Silver and 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.

Palazzo Pitti
piazza pitti 1

Beautiful gardens as the rear of Palazzo Pitti. Spread out over many acres and with different parts and gradients. Some may find some of the walks difficult but if you are averagely fit you'll be fine. Take a camera as the views down into Firenze are beautiful.
