Experience Florence in a unique way by visiting its stunning public gardens. Marvel at the city views as you take a guided walk to the Bardini Garden, Boboli Gardens, and on to the main doors of the Pitti Palace, which you can also visit with your ticket.
What to Expect
Escape from the crowded streets of Florence on this 3-hour tour that takes you through the city’s most famous Renaissance gardens.
Just a 10-minute walk from Ponte Vecchio you’ll find the gorgeous Bardini Garden, a place that boasts one of the most spectacular viewpoints in the city. Statues and fountains are scattered around the park, and the breathtaking view from the top is the same you would have from the nearby, overcrowded Piazzale Michelangelo.
Climb to the top of the hill in the Bardini Garden to reach the magnificent Forte Belvedere. This unique fortress is located on the highest hill of the Boboli Gardens, at the most strategic point, and provides a stunning panoramic view over the entire city of Florence and the surrounding region.
Well worth the uphill walk, you’ll find a pleasant bar with comfortable sofas where you can relax while enjoying the atmosphere. From Forte Belvedere your guide will take you through the Boboli Gardens, one of the most spectacular gardens in the world.
One of the foremost examples of an Italian-style garden, the Boboli is really an open-air museum, noted for its architecture and landscaping, and also for the many sculptures you find here.
Walking down the hill at the end of the tour, you’ll be guided to the main door of the Pitti Palace, and you’ll find yourself back in the center of Florence. The gardens tour ends here, but you can use the same ticket to enjoy the beauty of the Pitti Palace, and visit the Museum of Argenti (silver) and Museum of Porcellane (porcelain).
