Bardini Gardens is the most ancient of Florence's two Gardens, has a special nice story that follows the life of the families that bought it. The Garden was redefined with its actual look at the beginning of the last century by Stefano Bardini. Last year, after many years of restoration, it has been opened to the public.

From the top of the hill we'll exit from Bardini and enter into the prestigious Royal Garden of the Medici's Family that was thought as first Renaissance garden or "Giardino all'italiana".
An unforgettable view of Florence
