Boboli Garden - Review

Tickets From $12.42

Once upon a time, it was thought to be one of the greatest open air museums AND one of the greatest examples of ‘green architecture’, this awe-inspiring park took four centuries – from the 15th to the 19th – to build, under the patronage of the Medici and the Lorraine families. Designed by Niccolò Tribolo under instruction from the Borgolo family, the gardens have been worked upon by other famous architects such as Giorgio Vasari, Bartolomeo Ammannati and Bernardo Buontalenti. It doesn’t matter what season you visit the garden in, you’ll be just as struck by its majesty. Over the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries, the garden saw a lot of additional beautifying, until it was so lavish that it came to be thought of as an outdoor museum.

Highlights of the garden are:

  • An amphitheatre of stone inspired by Roman mythology.
  • Neptune’s fountain statue
  • Statue of The Abundance
  • The Isolloto, an oval shaped island in a tree enclosed pond, surrounded by statues of Greek gods.
  • The Large Grotto, which is filled with sculptures in mannerist style.
  • The Grotto of Madama
  • The Cypress Road

In the middle of the Gardens, you’ll also find the Porcelain museum.

Boboli Garden, Florence Reviews

  • Absolutely breathtaking views of Florence. For the basic entry it’s £10 (£5 if you’re a European citizen) and it’s well worth it. The grounds immaculate and clean. Be prepared to walk as this garden is huge! Lots of climbing but the views make up for it. The only problem I found with the Garden is that it isn’t wheelchair accessible. Pictures won’t do the scene justice! A must see for yourself.

  • A beautiful place which requires a great deal of climbing. The gardens are set on a hill overlooking Florence. It was extremely difficult in the July sun and there are only a few places to get water. Curiously, there are very few signs explaining the statues and other elements in the garden. Fort Belvidere, which allegedly gives the best view of the city, was inaccessible. Advice: bring your own water if you come in the summer. The grotto, which I thought would be the highlight of the visit was closed off and could only be seen from the outside. Still quite impressive. Due to the overwhelming heat we only got to see about 1/3 of the garden.

  • It’s a nice park for a picnic, but that’s all. Try to go on the first Sunday of the month when it’s free, otherwise I would skip it. A shame they charge an admission fee as it’s a fairly standard city park with only walking paths and trees. Few flowers or actual gardens to be had, although there are some cool sculptures. It appears that the nicest areas are closed off to visitors. I saw some lovely things through fences and locked gates... 😢

  • We felt this garden was under rated! It was a beautiful walk for a couple hours. The grounds and paths are well kept. Mostly a great escape from the crowds in the city. We went on a very hot day (35 degrees), and there was plenty of shade and places to sit down for breaks. I wish we could go back again! Worth the admission fee.

  • I'm sure these gardens we're something of a legend back in the day, but the current proprietor appears to be putting the admission fees somewhere other than maintenance. The site is poorly maintained. The fountains have slowed to a dribble, I assume from all the trash in them, and their waters are murky, yet somehow still supporting life. Much of the place is overgrown. Plaques are missing or damaged. And strangely, the graffiti is helpful, as it's the only indication of where the restrooms are. All that aside, the porcelain museum at the edge of the gardens is beautiful, and it's share of the gardens are also beautiful. The views up there are also something to see. The area of Boboli from the museum to the palace is the best maintained section of the gardens. It's just beautiful, and I wish they were able to have that level of maintenance throughout the site.
