Bardini Gardens (Giardino Bardini)
In the Oltrarno neighborhood of Florence, behind the 17th-century Villa Bardini, is the Bardini Gardens (Giardino Bardini) an often-overlooked gem.

The Bardini Garden’s pretty terraces are closer to the Arno River than the more popular Boboli Gardens, but were only opened to the public in 2012 and remain largely undiscovered by visitors. It was a classic Italian Renaissance garden, with fountains and statues among the symmetrically-placed plants, though the property dates back to the 13th century.

One of the primary reasons to visit the Bardini Garden, in addition to its serene beauty, is to escape the crowds of the nearby Boboli Gardens. As the Bardini Garden is closer to the Arno River, it also offers arguably better views overlooking the city of Florence.

There are many walking tours that include the Boboli Gardens, but only a few also visit the Bardini Garden. Choose a group tour or a private tour for a more intimate experience.

Practical Info

The Bardini Garden is a popular stop for families with kids - there are numerous places to sit and relax with a picnic while little ones run around, and there’s even a small cafe on the property.

Entrance Ticket to Boboli Garden

Behind Palazzo Pitti extends the wonderful Boboli Gardens. The Medici first took care of the arrangement, creating the Italian garden model that became an example for many European courts. The vast green surface, subdivided in a regular way, constitutes a veritable open-air museum, populated by ancient and Renaissance statues, adorned with caves, first of all the famous one by Bernardo Buontalenti, and large fountains, such as that of Neptune and Ocean. The subsequent Lorena and Savoy dynasties further enriched the structure, extending the borders that border the ancient city walls up to Porta Romana.
