Travel in Spring: visit the blooming gardens of Florence!Min. reading
The Florentine Spring is getting closer to its highlight: to be in the city during this period means to be able to visit the beautiful blooming gardens of Florence and discover her green soul!
Going for a walk in the city centre and exploring the palaces and museums is a must, but also the visit to the blooming gardens is something extraordinary, between colours and scents giving a unique flair to your stay in Florence.
If you travel with the family, with your partner, with friends, or why not, alone, we want to suggest you some visits to enrich even more your Florentine trip.
GIARDINO DELLE ROSE
Starting from the Oltrarno area, the Rose Garden is a free green space offering the view off the Belgian sculptor Jean-Michel Folon and a marvellous Japanese Oasis, gift by the city of Kyoto. The garden is open all year long, but May is the best period to visit it!
Always in the Oltrarno area, the Garden of Iris, nearby Piazzale Michelangelo. It opens at the end of April and only for the blooming of the Iris, a real magic in the heart of one of the most vital and authentic quarters of Florence.
GIARDINO DI BOBOLI
In Florence everybody then knows the Garden of Boboli, considered the historic park of the city, perfect for a walk or a relaxing afternoon, surrounded by architectural and landscape artworks that make of it one of the most beautiful gardens in Italy!
If stopping at the Boboli is a must, the visit to the Bardini Garden is an underrated but incredible experience! The view over the city – at the end of a beautiful baroque staircase – and the presence of the Dragon Fountain and of two grottos with annexed temple, are a real dreamy scenery, suggestive and romantic, giving you the perfect frame for your pictures.
