Giardino di Boboli
Giardino di Boboli, or The Boboli Garden is actually not a stand alone garden. It is the part of the Pitti Palace, but none the less, it is one of the biggest tourism attraction.

This garden was originally created by Cosimo I de’ Medici, in order to serve to his wife, Eleonora di Toledo, during the 16th century.
As the families grew to power, the garden became rich with sculptures and became open to public. The most famous one is the fountain of Neptune.

Giardino Bardini is very close to the Boboli Garden. The rich view of the baroque mansion is only amplified by the beauty of the surrounding gardens.

The very first owner who chose to place a garden there was Giulio Mozzi, in 1700. After his passing, the property went through many owners who further enriched the garden by adding paths, fountains, and other objects.
This beautiful location is only brought to an entirely new level, since you get a clear view over the city center.

Giardino delle Rose
Giardino delle Rose is one more of the precious gems Florence has to offer. The city entrusted the construction of this garden to Giuseppe Poggi during the year 1865.
It is said that the man drew inspiration from the French gardens, which gives these gardens somewhat of a French inspired look.

What is peculiar about this garden are the flowers. You will witness over 350 different sorts of roses. Most of them are native to Italy, but to commemorate the good relations between Japan and Italy, you will find Japanese sorts of roses, gifted to Florence by the town of Kyoto.
The garden is open to visitors from early in the morning, until the sunset. For a truly memorable sight to see, try visiting it just before the sunset.
