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.

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.

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. One entrance is located by the Palazzo Pitti, but there are others on Porta Romana Square, by the Forte di Belvedere, and by the Palazzina di Annalena on the Via Romana.
