Florence Boboli GardensFlorence's famous Giardini di Boboli (Boboli Gardens) were originally designed and laid out for the Medici family, after they purchased the Palazzo Pitti in the mid-16th century.

First opened to the Florence general public in 1766, the Giardini di Boboli (Boboli Gardens) are a magnificent example of classical Renaissance gardening. Much of Florence's Boboli Gardens are formal, consisting of neatly clipped box hedges and topiary.

Throughout Florence's Boboli Gardens you will find many exquisite statues and superb vistas, with exceptional views across Florence.
