If you visit Florence, you should make an effort to address the Boboli Gardens, worth seeing. These gardens are up to the best. If you have the fast train from Rome to Florence, you should definitely head to the gardens to stretch your legs, get some fresh air and enjoy the views. Therefore, if the Boboli gardens are on your agenda, take a second to read this little guide and get the layout of the earth with the what, where and when.


Located behind the Pitti Palace, the Boboli gardens were originally built for the Eleanor Duchess of Toledo. They were conceived for the first time in 1549 by Niccolo Pericoli, also known as Tribolo. However, after his death, the completion of the gardens was supervised by Bartolomeo Ammannati. However, he did not go alone and welcomed the contributions of Giorgio Vasari, who designed the famous Grottos and Bernardo Buontalenti of the garden, who classified their beautiful sculptures. Surprisingly, the Boboli Gardens do not have a natural water source, which means that a special conduit that redirects the water of the Arno River had to be specially designed. This water is then fed into an elaborate irrigation system.

What are they?

The Boboli gardens were created to function as an oasis in the city. They are a beautiful Eden of leafy greens where you can walk along twisting lanes and take refuge from the warm Florentine summers in the shade of the trees. The centerpiece of the gardens are the Vasari Grottoes. This is an artificial cave that has been decorated with stalactites, stalagmites, sponges, shells and rocks.

How do I get there?

The best way to get to the Boboli gardens is by bus, since the area is very well served by them. There are two stops along Via Romana. The Piazza San Felice and Romana. Both are served by the number 11 bus. From here you are located, but a few steps from the main entrance of the garden in the Pitti Palace.

Alternatively, there are also buses C3 and D, which have stops at Pitti and Santo Spirito. Once again, these are a very brief work of the Pitti Palace and the main entrance.

In total, the Boboli gardens have four entrances, and in each, you can find a ticket office. You can find the main entrance in the Pitti Palace and the other three in Forte Belvedere, Via Romana 27 / A, and Porta Romana.

When should I go?

I would recommend going to the Boboli Gardens when you are tired of standing in the covered museums. The gardens offer a fantastic "green rest" of the city as well. One of the best parts is that, because it is a large, open green area, you do not get stuck in the crowds. In short, you are guaranteed to find a beautiful corner to relax.
