Your experience

Highlights

  • Take part in a guided tour of the royal Boboli Gardens in Florence
  • Stroll through hectares of gardens, trees, fountains and terraces with a knowledgeable guide
  • Learn the history of the Italian gardens of the 16th century behind the Pitti Palace

Description

At the beginning of your tour, after you have crossed the courtyard of the Pitti Palace, your guide will take you to the fountain of the "Artichoke", the large octagonal basin decorated with numerous statues and crowned by a bronze lily. In front of you is the "amphitheatre", the first phase of the creation of this beautiful garden, which your guide will now explain to you.

If you climb up the hill you will find "Neptune's Fountain" and at the top of the hill the great statue dell'Abbondanza by Giambologna. Your guide will lead you through a steeply sloping avenue to go down the hill and to a large avenue known as the "Viottolone", with cypresses and statues, which then lead to the "Isolotto", a large pond with an admirable fountain, known as "The Ocean", created by Giambologna.

After learning all about the stories and artists behind the fountains and sculptures, you will visit the last stations of the "Giardino del Cavaliere" built by Michelangelo, the "Coffee House" and the "Buontalenti Grotto" created by Buontalenti from limestone-concrete stalactites, shells and terracotta reliefs, with the water running down the walls, giving life and colour. In this way you will also reveal the last secrets behind these designs and learn more about the artworks.

The tour lasts about an hour, the perfect time to see the highlights in the garden and get a structured overview. You can also return to anything you might want to see in more detail at the end of the tour.
