Garden

The Garden, which stretches on the Boboli hill from Pitti Palace to Forte Belvedere, is one of the largest and most refined gardens in Italy, first example and model for the royal gardens of European courts.

History

It was planned in 1550 by Niccolò Tribolo, at the wishes of Eleonora di Toledo (wife of Cosimo I de’Medici), and enlarged in successive stages over the centuries. Here worked also Davide Fortini and Giorgio Vasari, and Ammannati designed the courtyard that has his name. The present garden is the product of the 19th century renovations, that highlight a division into two parts: the “Italian-style” geometrical garden and a vast romantic “English-style” landscape-garden

Masterpieces

The garden is an extraordinary open air museum, where architectures and sculptures from the classic era to contemporary art merge into a great harmony.
The most important works are:

  • the Amphitheatre
  • the Neptune Basin with the Neptune Fountain
  • the Statue of the Abundance by Pietro Tacca
  • the Knight Garden
  • the Ocean Fountain by Giambologna
  • the “Mostaccini” Fountain by Romolo del Tadda
  • the Island Basin
  • the Madama Grotto
  • the Buontalenti Grotto
  • the Statue of Morgante Dwarf

"It was an incredible experience! For 10€ you can stay in this beautiful garden (it's a oasis in a big and touristic city) and visit three museums.My favorite was the Silvermuseum in rooms of the Pitti Palace with beautiful frescos. I hadn't enough time to see all of the garden, but I will return to visit florence again! "
