"Boboli Gardens" Boboli Gardens - Giardini Di Boboli Tip by Andraf

  Boboli Gardens, Florence
by Andraf

Boboli Gardens started to take shape in 1591 after the Medici bought Palazzo Pitti. They were modified over the years by different artists and were finally opened to the public in 1766. The main entrace to the gardens is through the courtyard of Palazzo Pitti. We took a path lined with cypress trees and classical statues that opened into a large area with an artificial lake and the Little Island (L'Isolotto). There were numerous statues and flowers around. One can rest on one of the benches around the lake and take in the beauty of the Giardini Boboli.

Address: Enter through Palazzo Pitti
