#2 of 24 in Parks in Florence
Discover panoramic views over Florence at Giardino Bardini, a little-known Renaissance garden only recently opened to the public. In this hillside oasis, you'll find myriad statuary, wild birds, and a coffeehouse with strong Italian coffee and views of the red-roofed city and hills beyond. Sit beside one of the tree-shaded fountains, then stroll through the wisteria-canopied walkways. There's also a museum next door where you can catch interesting exhibits and concerts.

  • I found my place in Florence. This paradise Bardini Giardino. A complete calm and appeasement. gentle aroma of camellias, the chirping of birds, murmuring water in fountains and stunning views of the old town. I will be returning here again and again.

  • I went to 8/2017. Garden entrance is two places and entrance from the Belvedere fortress that was closed for some reason. Here there was a poster with a side entrance, go from the entrance of the second. Entrance No. 2 of the Arno River, had to travel halfway across the garden so I gave up.

  • Even in the fall of this place inspires, in October last bloomed roses and their fragrance filled the air around. From the observation deck offers great views of the city. I would like to return in the spring, when blossoms wisteria.

  • Very beautiful and full of spirit. So green with nice view over the city. A bit expensive entrance fee, especially that many places were closed for visitors.
  • Beautiful formal gardens with roses and stunning panoramic views from the terrace in the Villa Bardini which has some fascinating collections of art and fashion.
  • Lovely garden. If you are planning to visit it, make sure you put aside a couple of hours for the visit; it is a large, once private, garden which is very well maintained by the museum. A nice attraction to visit if you're in Firenze!
  • Often overlooked by the busy travelers in Florence, this garden is the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. It is quiet and relaxing. Be sure to bring water with you.
  • Important: Cash Only and Very unhelpful staff. You can use credit card to buy ticket to Bardini and Belvedere garden at the Forte di Belvedere. The entrance staff rejected my credit card and ignored me to talk to other people. Didn’t even give suggestion. Took a while to find out you can pay at Belvedere. Otherwise it’s a good place to visit in Florence.
