Rising behind the Pitti Palace are the beautiful Boboli Gardens. They were originally designed for the Medici and are one of the earliest examples of the Italian Garden. Explore this open-air museum with ease, with a timed entrance ticket.
What to Expect
The gardens extend over a vast area forming an open-air museum with antique and Renaissance statues, grottoes and large fountains. Exploring its numerous and varied walks one is able to evoke the spirit of life at court.
The Grotta del Buontalenti is an artificial cave filled with false stalactites and stalagmites, with statues of sheeps, shepherds and Romans goddesses. The cave is located close to the entrance of the Boboli Garden and at the end of the Vasari Corridor.
The ticket also grants access to the Silver Museum located within the northeastern wing of the Palazzo Pitti. The museum houses all of the precious jewels and objects which belonged to the Medici and Lorraine families, both rulers of Florence.
On the upper slopes of the Boboli Gardens is the Porcelain Museum, while the Palazzina of the Meridiana contains the Costume Gallery, a showcase of the fashions of the past 300 years. Both museums can be visited with this entrance ticket to the Boboli Gardens.
