Boboli garden in florence

Boboli Garden, Italian garden in the heart of Florence

The Boboli Garden is a historic park located near Palazzo Pitti, a quarter of an hour’s walk from our bed and breakfast in Florence. It is one of the most fascinating examples of Italian garden in the world, an outdoor museum with a collection of sculptures of the ancient Rome and of the Renaissance, ornate with caves, among which that of the famous Buontalenti cited by Dan Brown in the Inferno thriller novel and large fountains, a nearly triangular shape and the characteristic Fountain of Neptune.

An area of approximately 45,000 square meters which has undergone enlargements and transformations over the centuries, passed from the Medici to Lorena property and then to Savoia.

You will find out enchanted and original green landscapes with statues, clearings, terraces, driveways, paths and fenced gardens that create a scenic scenery. From the Amphitheatre to the Garden of the Knight, from the lawn of Ganimede to the Kaffeehaus, to the Garden of Jupiter.

The Garden is part of the association “Grandi Giardini Italiani”, a brand that encloses the most beautiful gardens that can be visited in Italy.
