Boboli Gardens

The Boboli Gardens are formal 16th century gardens located in Florence, Italy.  They were built on the slopes of Boboli Hill, behind the Pitti Palace, home of the famous Medici family, in 1550.

The gardens feature a lot of statues, fountains, and even an amphitheater.  Visitors can walk along white pebbled paths, admiring the cypress trees and statues.  The gardens provide a quiet respite from the hustle and bustle of the busy city of Florence.

The Boboli Gardens are open daily from 9:00 AM until one hour before sunset.  Admission is 3 euros.


  1. Hi Sherry,

    That's a beautiful setting and a reasonable price of about four American dollars.

    Thank you, Sherry.


    1. You're welcome. I think it's a very nice place to visit.

  2. The Medici, a family with lots of history. Walking in a garden was a good way to arrange some time for trysts perhaps. Looks like a nice spot to visit.

  3. Never been to Italy but it sure is on my list. I love gardens, big or small.

  4. It looks like a beautiful place to visit. Gary answered the exchange question I had about what euros would equal in dollars.
