Vatican and St Peters private tour, Monday 17th March 2014

I would like to give you feedback on the above which our party of 8 enjoyed immensely.

Everything was perfect, meeting, entry (lovely to pass those queues), technology, venue (of course), etc.

But the best thing about the whole morning was your guide Deborah. She is charming, friendly, erudite, and a real credit to you. We listened to her intently throughout, she held our attention, surprised us, interacted with us, answered all our questions, and made the morning very special. We would have missed so much without her. We all think we would like to meet her again and when we come back to Rome we would hope to do so.

Many thanks

We are pleased to announce that as of the 10th March the Boboli Gardens have partially reopened to the public. With entrances at the Forte de Belvedere and the central gate of the Pitti Palace, open sections include the Cortile dell'Ammannati, the amphitheatre, the Fountain of Nepture, the Meridian, the Prato dei Castagni, and the Giardino del Cavaliere with its Museum of Porcelain. Unfortunately other sections remain closed to the public until further notice.

The porcelain museum (Museo delle Porcellane) is housed in the building known as the Casino del Cavaliere, located within the Boboli gardens. The collection spans the works of the most prized European porcelain houses, most notably Sèvres and Meissen.

The silver museum (Museo degli Argenti) is located inside the Pitti Palace and is home to a splendid collection of well, silver, as well as cameo work and pieces of work in semi-precious stones.

The costume gallery (Galleria del Costume) is located in the wing of the palace known as the Palazzina della Meridiana, and is home to a collection of theatrical costumes dating from the 16th century up to the present day. Also on show is a collection of Italian garments spanning the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries.

The Boboli gardens are very much worth a visit, if only for the splendid views they offer across the city of Florence, and for the chance of some cool shade during the summer heat! They range up the Boboli hill from the rear of the Pitti Palace, and are a fine example of formal Italian gardens, dotted here and there with a wide range of sculptures and Roman antiquities.
The gardens are also home to small and large grottos, as well as the much-photographed and postcard-reproduced statue Bacchino, a satiric representation of a court dwarf as Bacchus.

The galleries are always closed on Mondays; the gardens are closed on the first and last Monday of every month, and garden opening hours vary according to time of year:

November to February: 08.15AM - 04.30PM
March: 08.15AM - 05.30PM
April, May and September: 08.15AM - 06.30PM
June, July and August: 08.15AM - 07.30PM
October: 08.15AM - 05.30PM
