Boboli GardensApprox. Time: 2 hours
Activity Level: Easy to Moderate

Florenceā€™s largest and most beautiful gardens are located directly behind the massive Pitti Palace, just south of the river Arno across the Ponte Vecchio. It is both easy and a delight for a tourist to pass a peaceful afternoon strolling through the immaculately groomed grounds. There is plenty of sun and shade, and the atmosphere is filled with the whispering of fountains, the singing of birds, and the rustling of leaves. Visitors often enjoy a light lunch or a drink at the outdoor cafe overlooking the river Arno and the city.
