“The visit to the Boboli gardens was excellent and being able to book a early timeslot was brilliant to be able to miss the crowds it felt we had the place to ourselves.”

“Boboli Gardens were remarkable. Views got better and better as you go higher and the view of the City of Florence from the top was spectacular. Lots of walking so wear comfortable shoes - there are level paths around the perimeter.”
JC, United States

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 Pitti Palace is but a short walk from the centre of Florence and is often reached by strolling across the noted Ponte Vechhio bridge.

The gardens are also home to small and large fountains and grottos, as well as the much-photographed and postcard-reproduced statue Bacchino, a satiric representation of a court dwarf as Bacchus. If you wish to visit the Pitti Palace itself (and its various galleries) then you will need this other ticket.

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 tour was really great. Unfortunately it was raining so we didn't spend as much time wandering around the gardens as we would have wished, but I would certainly recommend the tour to friends and family. The museums that were opened to us were also extremely informative and entertaining

Beautiful and you get to go into a few other museums on the property with the same ticket. On the Altrarno, it is away from the hustle and bustle of the Ponte Vecchio and is a quieter part of the city.
