We are always surprised to learn the Boboli gardens often do not make people´s must-visit-when-in-Florence list! Considered one of the most elegant gardens in the world, this extension of the Pitti Palace is not only pure beauty in itself, but also houses an impressive collection of marble statues, fountains, a cypress lane, porcelain museum (on the hilltop) and the stunning grotto (not to be missed). The hilltop views of Florence are simply marvelous, but be prepared to walk if you want to experience it all. Perhaps skip the porcelain museum, which is the farthest attraction. We suggest you explore Pitti and Boboli following a stroll over nearby Ponte Vecchio.
