Visit the green oasis in the center of Florence, a marvelous design by Niccolò Tribolo and later featured by Giorgio Vasari, Bartolomeo Ammannati and Bernardo Buontalenti in 16th-century. Your tour guide will meet you in the Piazza Pitti or the Pitti Square right in front of the Central Gate, before unveiling the history of the Boboli Gardens and how it was designed. The tour starts from the central Gate of Palazzo Pitti, and the guide will give an explanation of the Palazzo Pitti while walking you towards the gardens. You can only get to know these details from a professional and local guide who is has a profound knowledge of all the small details. You can take a relaxing walk through this amazing open-air museum, full of fountains, temples, beautiful caves and sculptures (Michelangelo, Giambologna) and many more.

We had a very interesting tour with Rossella through the Boboli garden. The tips on what we can do with an admission ticket were also very informative!
