Behind Florence's Pritti Palace sits The Boboli Gardens, an outdoor sculpture museum. Designed for the Medici grand dukes in the 16th century, this is one of the earliest examples of the Italian Garden style that later inspired the green spaces of many European courts. Choose one of the garden's many trails and discover grottoes, fountains, and statues. The sculptures date from the 16th to the 18th century, with some Roman antiquities. Walk to the top of the hill at the back of the garden for views of Florence. Guided tours are available.

  • Wouldn’t have been upset if we skipped this one. Don’t expect beautiful flowers and impeccably manicured foliage. It was a strange hilly maze of shrubs that needed grooming. Ticket price is far too...

  • This was our second time in Boboli gardens. We once visited in summer and we didn’t see all of it so we came back years later. I have a feeling it gave a nicer impression when we saw it for the first....  more

  • One of the most enchanting and fascinating places in Florence. Large and architecturally magnificent garden in the middle of the center of Florence. Incredible history and one of the greatest tourist attractions in the entire city, totally deserves a visit. Be aware of the terrain, bring comfy shoes and be also aware of the weather, I suggest going on sunnier days and of course, not right after it has rained. MUST SEE IN FLORENCE THOUGH
  • The gardens are actually more of a park. It's big, full of trees and high bushes. There are some nice views on Firenze. But there is no special vegetation, not one flower or even the famous typical cypress to be seen. It's says it has the typical cypress lane but it's actually a view you get from a hill out of the premises. I think it was kind of a letdown for 10 euro entrance. Nothing special about it. And the botanical garden is behind closed doors.
