A guided tour into the Boboli Gardens will allow you to discover the panoramic beauties of a private and familiar place first, and a sought touristic attraction after, with 800 thousand tourists per year who choose the Boboli Gardens to learn what an Italian-style garden means.

Grottoes, waterworks, natural arches and paths create a labyrinthine twist with wonderful views and hidden nooks. Getting lost into Boboli Gardens?

It is wonderful, for sure, but maybe it is more beautiful to perceive where we are and to realize the history and the art surrounding us.
At the beginning, the garden was called “Orto dei Pitti” for the name of the Pitty family, the first one who erected buildings in this area, out of the ancient walls of Florence.

A century later, in 1549, Eleonora di Toledo, wife of the first Medici Grand Duke, Cosimo I, bought this Orto and changed it into a wonderful garden..

Her son Francesco I made his friend and architect Buontalenti work on the garden. It was all a matter of creating astonishment, anybody in Florence had to be shocked.

A guided tour into the Boboli Gardens will not let you lose the details and the stories of those people who came there; you will understand what different needs the garden could accomplish, according to the period you lived in.
