Description

Explore Boboli Gardens on a walking tour with a local guide. Discover a green oasis in the center of Florence, designed by Niccolò Tribolo and later featured by Giorgio Vasari, Bartolomeo Ammannati, and Bernardo Buontalenti in the 16th century. Add a guided wine tasting to enrich your tour. The tour starts from the central Gate of Palazzo Pitti, where your guide will unveil the history of the Boboli Gardens and how it was designed while walking you towards the gardens. Take a scenic stroll through the open-air museum, full of fountains, temples, beautiful caves, sculptures (Michelangelo, Giambologna), and many more. Walk with your guide and admire its masterpieces like the Grotta Grande, the Amphitheater, the Viottolone and the Isolotto, the Knights Garden, and the Kaffehaus, and enjoy a spectacular view of Florence. Before the tour ends, don't forget to ask your guide for any additional questions you may have, and at the end of the tour, you can stay some time in the garden at your leisure. Optional Wine Tasting If you have a special love for all that is Italian, choose to add an optional Tuscan wine tasting guided by a wine expert. Following your tour, taste different Tuscany wines paired with a platter of Tuscan appetizers.
