The Boboli Gardens

Recommendations

Directly behind Pitti Palace are the marvelous Boboli Gardens. The Medici family established the layout of the gardens, creating the Italian garden style that would become a model for many European courts. The vast green expanse with a regular layout is a real outdoor museum, populated by ancient and Renaissance statues.

Notes from The Boboli Gardens:
Behind Palazzo Pitti extends the wonderful Boboli Gardens. The Medici were the first to take care of its arrangement, creating the model of an Italian garden that became an example for many European courts. The vast green area divided in a regular way, constitutes a real open-air museum, populated with ancient and Renaissance statues, decorated with caves, first of all the famous one created by Bernardo Buontalenti, and large fountains, such as that of Neptune and of the Ocean. The subsequent Lorraine and Savoy dynasties further enriched the structure, expanding the borders that line the ancient city walls up to Porta Romana. The terraced area where the eighteenth-century pavilion of the Kaffeehaus is located, a rare example of Rococo architecture in Tuscany or the Limonaia, is of considerable visual appeal.
