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.

  • A beautiful garden next to the Boboli Gardens (included in one ticket). Besides some beauties of vegetation, offers two fantastic glimpses of which a beautiful view of the Santa Croce, Florence and Casentino in the distance. Don't miss the entrance a gorgeous where the Tower of the Palazzo della Signoria hides the Giotto's Bell Tower (a real Eclipse of Tower)!

  • I recommend everyone visiting this beautiful garden, maybe after seeing the Museum often hosts interesting exhibitions of other artists in addition to masterpieces by Annigoni. The view is one of the best and this place is always very few people ... Recommended.

  • A corner of Florence where you edited the garden giving a cyclicity of blooms. The best flower, always shining, is before us: the incredible view of the city. To whom it may choose the season I would recommend the spring when a lilac berceaux shines with all shades of color.

  • Very soothing and peaceful. View was outstanding. Gardens were great to wander through
  • Less known then Boboli Garden but as beautiful and much less crowded. A nice cafeteria at the top with a great view on the city. The ticket is the same as Boboli. The villa in the garden hosts art exhibitions included in the ticket price.
  • The gardens are beautiful. I recommend taking a taxi to the top and walking down if you are elderly.
  • There are plenty free gardens you can explore with the same view. However this one is worth paying for and you can see the neighboring gardens included in the price. Villa is however not worth the extra money.
  • Very nice place to spend some time in Florence. The garden is very well maintained. Our visit was in April and we had a chance to see the famous wisteria flowers at it's best. The best way to visit is by buying a combined ticket at Pitti Palace for 8 euro for Giardino Boboli and Bardini.

Where to stay in Florence

Variety is not a problem when deciding where to stay in Florence. The compact town center is packed with hotels, hostels, and small inns. The drawback of this upmarket central area is that even family-run B&Bs often cost as much as luxury hotels. For more affordable lodgings, explore the area outside the tourist-driven city center. Staying in one of the city's residential neighborhoods allows you to immerse yourself in the daily life of local Florentines. B&Bs and hotels outside the center offer private parking and spacious rooms, all within walking distance of the main tourist sites.
