    Definitely one of my favourite spots in Florence. Great views of the city, high hedges, and nice sculptures. Opens at 8:30AM and costs 10 euros. Well worth it to get amazing views away from tourists.

    The wonderful Boboli Gardens lie behind the Pitti Palace. The Medici Family first created it, inventing the model of the Italian garden, which was copied by many European Courts. Read more

    Very beautiful park and 10 EUR for entrance is not much to climb to the top and enjoy amazing view of Florence and many monuments in the park.. At least you can lay on the grass and relax...

    A nice garden to stroll in after studying art and the living quarters in Palazzo Pitti. We bought some salami, prosciutto and cheeses with us for lunch to eat in the sun. Really nice time spent!

    It is a park that is home to a collection of sculptures dating from the 16th through the 18th centuries with some Roman antiquities. The main seat of the Medici grand dukes of Tuscany. VERY BEAUTIFUL!

    Dubious if it's worth the 10 euros. But, pretty relaxing and calming to walk through. The ceramic museum has some stunning pieces. Definitely allow for 2 hours to walk through and see everything.

    The gardens are really beautiful. Prepare your legs cause you're in for some stair climbing and lots of walks. But the view is really something! Be sure to go in early.

    The sumptuous formal grounds of the Palazzo Pitti, Florence’s largest palace, spread elegantly across a hillside, with pools, marble statuary, secret paths and hidden gardens. Read more

    Be aware of the over zealous cleaners who will take their own sweet time cleaning the toilets despite a queue forming outside. Otherwise a beautiful place to visit and to chill out.

    The Garden, behind the Pitti Palace (the main seat of the Medici grand dukes of Tuscany) is one of the first and most familiar formal 16th century Italian gardens.

    9€ entry & a steep climb to the top may keep this renaissance park an oasis. Not to be missed is the view from "Coffee House" - bring a blanket & waste an afternoon!

    This is such a beautiful place, you can stay here for hours. Make sure you bring enough water because fountains with drinking water are rare.

    Prepare to hike and climb if you want to catch the best scenery. Great place for sunset.

    If you're looking for a place to run with amazing views and no crowds, pay the 10 euros and spend an afternoon in here. Lots of hills also!

    Beautiful and peaceful gardens with wonderful views of Firenze. Stairs abound so be mindful if coming right from Piazzale Michaelangelo.

    Very pretty. Good views. Would be even prettier in spring/summer with all of the leaves and the flowers. Still very pretty though.

    10 € without Firenze Card, but it's a quiet place with a lovely view. In summer don't forget the water and the hat

    Its the garden of Palazzo Pitti. Maje sure to visit the Fortezza Belvedere (the garden ticket is valid for there too).

    Beautiful gardens, great views over the city. Too many stairs in the gardens and palazzo!

    To avoid long lines at Palazzo Pitti, go around to Forte di Belvedere where there is a second - queueless - entrance to the garden!

    Beautiful garden and walk paths, but be prepared for uphills and stairs.

    It'a a wonderful place to visit. A big Italian garden in the heart of Firenze, with astonishing masterwork from great artists.

    Left side of the gardens as you enter it, is the perfect place for a nice photoshoot :)

    Wandered in by accident didn't realise it was ticketed. Formal garden not as many places to chill as if hoped

    Most of the beautiful gardens in Europe, including Versailles, were inspired by the Giardino di Boboli

    Entrance was €10 in 2013/October. It could take all your day to complete the park but I think it is worthy.

    Had trouble climbing the hilly terrain, maps aren't clear, looks neglected, not many places to get cold water.

    Quite disappointed, garden looks like it's not maintained at all, incomparable to Belvedere, Schönbrunn or Schlosshof in Austria
