Boboli Gardens - Florence

A rather long overdue tour from my trip to Italy in October, of the glorious Boboli Gardens located behind the  Pilazzo Pitti. To get the lay of the land, click here for a v cool virtual tour or here for a general map

 Got your walking shoes on? Lets go!

 Palazzo Pitti

Check out the Grotto inside the Palazzo


The Amphitheatre


walk up the hill

to the Garden of the Cavalier and the Porcelain Museum




great views from the Cavalier Garden


The coffee house (sadly closed, sorry)

Not bad views of Florence from the Garden


Isolotto Fountain with loads of potted citrus trees!


The Orangery

Buontalenti Grotto



Bacchus Fountain

since you've walked so far and done so well I think you deserve a nice glass of wine :)

Salute!

Really pleased to have discovered a kiwi blog, lovely pictures. Love the contrast in the light over Florence and over London. Both beautiful yet different.

Hi Vanya. The most intoxicating photos...don't need the wine! The skies cooperated with you to dramatic effect. Love the allee and the reflecting potted orange trees. All so beautiful, thank you! Trish
