This was self-guided. If you enjoy being outdoors, taking a break from the hustle & bustle of Florence city proper, this is a peaceful respite. We thoroughly enjoyed exploring every nook and cranny and the view of Florence from the top.

It’s worth going and getting some pictures of the beautiful garden and the fountain as well as you can see Florance from a different perspective.

We heard that Boboli Gardens is a beautiful place to visit. We enjoyed a leisurely walk throughout and picnicked.

It was nice to book ahead and not wait in line to experience yourself the gardens.

Very very beautiful garden, ideal for wedding photos
