The Boboli Gardens

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by mlmeredith on August 10, 2007

The Boboli Gardens are a special place, even on a very hot day, large and expansive. So expansive that I find it difficult to imagine them crowded. You could wander all day long, and never pass the same lush place twice.

It’s all a marriage of artists, both in stone and in plants that was arranged by the Medici. One lake features a statue of Neptune working his trident. Another has an ornate gate with goats atop. And then there is the Palazzo Pitti, the Medici Palace itself, crammed full of art (which sadly we didn’t have time to visit on this trip). (
