The Boboli Gardens
Behind the Pitti Palace, the astonishing Boboli Garden stretches over the hill creating a real open-air museum. Commissioned by the Medici family, it became the prototype of the Italian-style garden for many European courts.
Even today, the enchanted atmosphere of its grottos, statues, and hidden paths are a pure delight for young and old...
Its huge green expanse is scattered with plenty of ancient and modern statues, monumental fountains and grottos like the fabulous one by the celebrated artist Bernardo Buontalenti.
Its fascinating pathways allow to catch the atmosphere of court life while walking amidst natural wonders which renew themselves endlessly.
