I always try to visor botanical gardens when traveling. Florence's is quite old, well displayed and offers a broad array of plantings. It was so nice to stroll the grounds and enjoy the product of many generations of nurturing plants with nary another soul in sight! Well worth it. Very close to the Academia/David.
We found this by chance, wanting somewhere to reflect, as we had just visited San Marco and our minds were full of Fra Angelico. The gardens, begun in 1545 by Cosimo di Medici, are just around the corner from San Marco: they are behind the railings by the bus stops on via la Pira; follow the railings away from town,... 更多
A small botanical garden north of the Galleria Accademia. Not the best gardens we have seen parts of it looked a little run down & untidy. Probably had its funding reduced as it is looked after by the university. It has some good tree specimens, palms & some beautiful hydrangeas. I would not make this a must visit place but,... 更多
These gardens are a little out the way, but not far as Florence is small. The gardens are so quiet and peaceful and a lovely way to end a busy tourist day.
Great to walk around this lovely old garden. You are handed a paper guide to the help inform you of the different groupings of plants. This garden is so quiet compared to the rest of Florence, well worth the time for a visit.
I do love this botanical garden because it is an oasis of peace and tranquility in a busy old town. I did visit it in April so there was many flowers and trees in full blossom. There wasn't many tourists around so I did enjoy a time for reflection and meditate. It is worth visit!
This is a small garden laid out in experimental beds. You are given a guide when you go in and it explains what you will find in each area. It is very pleasant to wander around on a warm day. The downside is that there is only one toilet in the garden and is is not in pristine condition.
We spent a very happy hour or so in this lovely little botanical garden. It's clear that there is much work in hand to improve this haven of peace, and there are sections of medicinal plants, carnivorous plants, scented plants, succulents, and a magnificent palm house, among lots of shrubs, mature trees, ponds, etc. It's really varied - lots to... 更多
We were amazed to find a green space in the city we could get into even if we did pay a fee - there are other gardens marked on the map but mostly they are private inner courtyards ( for a block ) Not fancy, not a big production, but a haven away from the busy main sights
