In the Boboli Gardens, you’ll find a wide variety of sculptures, grottoes, and fountains, making it the largest open-air museum in Florence. A rich culture and history have been accumulated over four centuries, beginning in the 15th century.
The beautiful Boboli Gardens are directly behind Pitti Palace. A style of Italian garden was established by the Medici family, which would become a model for many European courts.
There are many ancient and Renaissance statues dotted throughout the vast green expanse with a standard design. There are caves, including the famous Bernardo Buontalenti grotto, as well as large fountains such as the Fountain of Neptune and the Fountain of the Ocean in the Gardens.
Later, the Habsburg-Lorraine and Savoy dynasties extended the boundaries of the ancient city walls to Porta Romana. There are beautiful terraced gardens with an 18th-century pavilion and Lemon House built by Zanobi del Rosso in 1777 and 1778.
The Kaffeehaus is a rare example of Rococo architecture in Tuscany. By visiting Boboli Gardens, which are an integral part of Pitti Palace, one is able to fully appreciate the spirit of court life and appreciate the gardens, which, although constantly updated, remain true to their original design.
Over the centuries, both the Medici and the Lorraine families continued to enrich and enlarge the garden, transforming it into an outdoor museum exhibiting Roman and Renaissance statues. There are many highlights of the gardens to discover along your walk, notably the Amphitheatre, the Citta di Venezia, the Garden of the Cavaliere, the Koffeehouse, and the Grotta Grande.
Closing Days First and last Monday of each month.
