Boboli Gardens

Visit the Boboli Gardens, an Italian-style garden and outdoor museum

The sumptuous Boboli Gardens stand out right opposite our apartments situated in Viale Poggio Imperiale.

 

The Boboli Gardens cover an area of approximately 45,000 m2 were built in various stages behind Palazzo Pitti, in a period ranging between the 15th to the 19th centuries under the guidance of the various families that alternated in the history of Florentine political power.

Points of interests within the Boboli Gardens

As this is such a vast garden which hosts so many statues and works of art, there are almost infinite points of interest within the Boboli Gardens. In any case, here are some suggestions:
 

The amphitheatre, Bacino del Nettuno (Neptune’s Basin) and the Giardino del Cavaliere (The Knight’s Garden)

From the rear façade of Palazzo Pitti towards Boboli hill, we can find a large amphitheatre. In the middle, there is the Egyptian obelisk, the only one in Tuscany and one of the most ancient throughout the entire region (1500 B.C). Apart from the amphitheatre, there are also the Bacino di Nettuno (Neptune’s Basin) and the Giardini del Cavaliere (the Knight’s Garden), where, inside the Casino there is the Porcelain Museum.
 

The Kaffeehaus (Coffee House) and the Buontalenti Grotto

The Kaffeehaus (coffee house) is a beautiful construction built in the Rococo style in which today there is a panoramic coffee shop. Opposite the Kaffeehaus, there is the  Prato di Ganimede (Ganymede’s lawn) and a little further ahead, there is the Giardino di Madama (Madama Garden) and the Orto di Giove (Jupiter’s Garden). Going down towards Palazzo Pitti, you arrive at the current exit of the Vasari Corridor (the visit to this follows a route, part of  which goes in the opposite direction, starting from the Uffizi Gallery and ending at the Boboli Gardens) next to the Buontalenti Grotto, one of the “jewels” of the park.

Booking your holiday home in Florence in Viale del Poggio Imperiale you will be staying opposite the marvellous Boboli Gardens.
