The Boboli Gardens is a park that has been modeled in the Renaissance Style, home to a wide variety of plants, as well as a vast collection of sculptures dating from the 16th to the 18th centuries. The gardens are directly behind the Medici’s Pitti Palace, the main seat of power of the Medici Grand Dukes, and they spread out over 111 acres of rolling greens. Formally styled and wonderfully arranged, the gardens are a delight for the senses with their heady mix of nature, architecture, and sculpture. With these tickets, you gain entry to the Boboli Gardens. Stroll on the geometrical paths through the luxuriant greens, and see the many different expressions of Renaissance ideals in and around the park in the form of the formally ordered and beautifully adorned architecture, natural beauty, and ancient structures. You can admire the magnificent sculptures and artworks strewn all over the park, such as the 34-century old Obelisk from Egypt, Stoldo Lorenzi’s Neptune’s Fountain, the Fountain of the Ocean by Giambologna, and Giorgio Vasari's Large Grotto. The grottoes at the garden are of particular note, as they are a prime example of outdoor sculpture, and represent different and defining aspects of Mannerist architecture. You also gain access to the Bardini gardens (only recently opened to the public) and the Museum of Porcelain with these tickets. These attractions are located near the Boboli Gardens, and they will give you a further glimpse into Renaissance art and architecture, thus nicely rounding out your visit. Ideal for art and nature lovers, this visit will let you peek into the heart of Renaissance beauty.
