Details

Kid Friendly: Yes. If there are any kids, the tour will be tailor-made on them. There's plenty of room in Boboli to arrange an exciting scavenger hunt, for instance.

Friendly: Yes.
The tour, conceived such in a way, could be particularly difficult for people with disabilities because of the gardens' natural conformation with steep paths and gravel. I suggest we arrange it in a completely different way.

Maximum travelers: 8

Tour the gardens of Florence


In the city of Florence you can well fully immerse into vegetation. . . a vegetation shaped by man in a marvellous way. ! We will walk through the garden, once belonging to the famous antiquarian Stefano Bardini -Florence houses a gorgeous museum wholly devoted to him- until we reach the fancy Costa San Giorgio next to the 14th century city walls, passing elegant villas. Then we will get into the Boboli Gardens, the astonishing exterminate XVI century "all'italiana" garden we owe to Eleonora di Toledo, wife to Cosimo I. I will satisfy your curiosity, unvealing to you the meaning of the jaw-dropping Buontalenti grotto and of the 16th and 17th century statues scattered all over the Garden.
