It’s called the ‘Greenway’ the walk that takes us through two beautiful gardens: the Bardini, with an amazing view over the city and Boboli the most famous Italian garden in the world.
Duration: 3 hours| Rates
These are the most important stops during our tour:
- The Giardino Bardini: Its history is closely related to the families that have owned it. Reopened recently following the wishes of its last owner at the beginning of the XXth century. We’ll admire the baroque stairway with statues and flowers along the sides, the waterworks in the Chinese garden, the English forest, but mostly, the beautiful terrace with a surprising view over Florence where it seems one can almost touch the roofs and the water of the Arno.
- The path takes us further along the defensive walls built by Michelangelo during the 1529 siege towards the entrance of the Royal gardens of Boboli. It is one of the most important examples of an Italian Renaissance garden: geometrically ordered where statues, fountains and monuments turn it into an open air museum. We’ll visit the Grotta del Buontalenti, the Ocean Fountain by Giambologna, the Egyptian Obelisk, the Statue of Abundance and the Amphitheatre.
With the same ticket you can also visit the Museo delle Porcellane or the amazing Museo degli Argenti where the treasures of Lorenzo il Magnifico, of the Medici and the Lorraine families are exposed. We can take this walk also in the opposite direction.
