The Silver Museum displays the Medici's Treasure, the jewels and the most precious objects once belonged to the Lords of Florence.
The museum, opened in the late 19th century, is located on the ground floor of the Pitti Palace, in the summer apartments of the Medici court, sumptuously decorated with baroque frescoes.
It shows the huge collection of precious objects once belonged to the Grand Dukes of Tuscany, with later additions coming from the ancient Gems' Cabinet of the Uffizi, from the collection of jewels belonged to Anna Maria Luisa de’ Medici, from the Treasure of the prince-bishops of Salzburg and from the Treasure of San Lorenzo in Florence.
The core of the collection is a group of sixteen vases in semi-precious stones once belonged to Lorenzo the Magnificent, products of classical, Byzantine, Venetian and even Persian workshops, with gilded silver frames made by Florentine goldsmiths of the 15th entury.
The rooms on the ground floor house pieces of furniture in semi-precious stones, reliquaries, vases in semi-precious stones and rock crystal, ambers and ivories. The mezzanine rooms display silverware, cameos and above all jewels, as well as curious objects such as ostrich eggs, shells and coconuts.

This is a huge garden/park so bring your comfy shoes. It's not as manicured as you might be led to believe, but the age and magnitude of it is amazing. Bring a snack and a couple of beers to picnic overlooking the city. It has a wonderful view!

I imagined the gardens to be large but flat, wrong!!!! These gardens are built on the edge of a hill and a big one at that. From the entrance steps you just keep going up. There are different levels with beautiful views of the Pritti Palace, the city and surrounding areas. Sculptures fill most areas, surrounded by lush green lawns....

Our hotel room opened to a courtyard and we could see Boboli Gardens over the rooftop on the opposite side, so almost from the moment we arrived in Florence, I knew it would be a beautiful place. I like arboretums, parks, etc..., so when I had a little free time before we left, I ventured the block or two over...

Peaceful after the bustle. Mainly trees with one garden area. This is not a flower garden and in the main consists of walks among trees. Lovely views after a steep climb. Quite costly for what it us at € 10.

These gardens were lovely. They aren't flower garden (nor are they marketed as that) but I would imagine you'd be disappointed if you were looking for bright colours as you won't find it here. However, they are still gorgeous. The path is steep and we had to follow the map to make sure we were going the right way, but...

We visited the gardens twice in our stay in Florence, once from the Fort Belvedere entrance at the top of the hill and once from the Porta Romana entrance. As my partner is a wheelchair user, we both were able to enter for free, which is great! The slopes are a bit of a problem for wheelchair users, but there...

We were a little surprised at the price of the tickets to enter the Boboli gardens - 10 euros per adult. But it was well worth it! A beautiful garden with statues, fountains and ponds. We combined it with a picnic and spent 2-3 hours walking around the garden and admiring all the magnificent views.

I came here because of Dan Browns' Inferno which references these gardens quite a lot. They are indeed very beautiful! The views are spectacular and the fee is tiny. I only wondered around the gardens as had little interest in the 3 museums included in the ticket. At this time, the fountains are not functional which is a shame. Also,...

It is a bit of a hidden gem and worth the fee. Spend a couple of hours or more wandering through gardens and see the costume exhibition in the house\palace. Exceptional period rooms to boot. For a bit of fun, Strike a pose besides the many garden statues

The ticket to the gardens also gives access to other museums and gardens. It does take time to see it all. The gardens are reasonably well kept, but do not expect flowers. It's a nice walk around in good weather. Keep in mind that the gardens are open 7/7, but the Pitti palace next to them is closed on Mondays.
