Information and ticket booking for the Boboli & Bardini Gardens at the Pitti Palace, Florence, Italy.
This ticket allows entrance to the Boboli gardens (behind the Pitti Palace), the Bardini Gardens as well as the Porcelain Museum. This ticket used to include entrance to the Costume Gallery and the Silver Museum but, as of May the 16th 2017, that is no longer the case - these two museums are now included in the other ticket we sell, one that also gets you in to the two main galleries at the Pitti Palace - the Palatine and the Modern galleries.
If there's a special exhibition running at the time of your visit then your ticket price will include entrance to the exhibition.
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 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.
There is a wardrobe room where bags of no larger than 40*40*50 cm may be left. 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
