3 Tips for Visiting the Boboli Gardens

The view of Florence from the Boboli Gardens.
If you love hunting for views, the Boboli Gardens are set slightly above the center of the city so you can find a great panorama of the Duomo and the rest of Florence.
Take time to explore the paths and stairs of the Boboli Gardens.
If you want to discover every secret the garden has to offer, make sure you wear comfortable shoes and clothes. There are lots of slopes and stairs, but if you love long walks there’s plenty to see!
If you’re looking for a lunch spot, bring a picnic blanket and some sandwiches! There are plenty of shady spots to escape the heat in summer. Just make sure to watch out for signs telling you not to walk on certain sections of the lawn.

Frequently Asked Questions

What’s there to see in the Boboli Gardens?

The Renaissance-style elements of the gardens were inspired by Ancient Rome and were laid out for Eleonora di Toledo, the wife of Cosimo I de' Medici, around 1550 AD. Several of the statues and pieces featured in the garden would have been ancient even then! For example, there’s a real Egyptian obelisk from the time of the Pharaohs in the middle of an Imperial Roman amphitheater. The gardens also include a collection of Renaissance art featuring works from Michelangelo, Giambologna and Buontalenti. Other great pieces to discover include the Fountain of Neptune, the Kaffeehaus, and the Porcelain Museum (entry to the museum is included in the ticket for the gardens). And, of course, the plants of the garden are also worth seeing, especially the roses and citrus fruit trees. Read more.

How long should I plan for my visit?

If you’re visiting the Palazzo Pitti as well, then it’s recommended you plan at least 2 hours for the museums in the palace complex and 1 hour for the Boboli Gardens. There’s no time limit, so enjoy the park for as long as you like once you’re inside. Read more.

How do I get to the Boboli Gardens?

The gardens are in the Oltrarno district in the center of Florence, between the Palazzo Pitti and the Porta Romana. From Santa Maria Novella train station you can walk to the park in 30 minutes, or you can take the bus (C3 or C4) and be there in 15 minutes.
