This museum/garden is a very well looked after, small, botanical collection right in the centre of Florence, and worth a visit if you're interested in plants, and in need of a peaceful interlude. We spent a very happy hour there on a recent visit to...More
We had met the director of this small, but well tended Botanical garden in the States. The plants are mostly identified and the gardens range from medicinal plants (Tuscan, oriental and European) , to many types of citrus, carnivorous plants, cacti, food plants, poisonous plants,...More
Walking around Florence can take a lot of energy to today my friend and I decided we wanted to relax somewhere and escape the hustle and bustle of the city and all the crowds. We walked around the garden and saw some lovely trees and...More
I decided to go to Florence spontaneously and didn’t have the money/reservations to see any of the popular museums or gardens and cans across this place. It’s only 3€ so it’s not a waste of money and the plants and few flowers that are there...More
If you want to do something different in Florence and need to rest your brain a little after gazing at the wonderful art, this is the place to visit. It is a real break from all the hustle and bustle of the busy city and...More
I have to say that I have been to this garden 4 times in 15 years and every time the staff have been extremely rude. Today I went and offered my identity card, with a cheery smile and a 'buon giorno!' as I am now...More

I actually visited in late May 2016 (the page gave me no choice to write that in), and obviously it matters , with growing plants, when to visit a botanical garden. I found everything well tended , vibrant and colorful, both indoor displays and outdoor....More
The pleasant atmosphere of this residential area, a stone’s throw away from the Duomo of Florence, surprises everyone. A continuous flow of backpacking students provides the tranquil surroundings for the elderly residents who sit in Piazza San Marco to read the daily newspaper. Home to several universities, including the Academy of Fine Arts, San Marco is one of the most vibrant cultural centers in the city. A
bridge connecting the modern cultural activity of Florence to its classic art, represented by the everlasting magnificence of the original David, resonates as a symbol of Florence and of Italy as a whole. Get lost in a Neoclassic world, a journey back in time through historic buildings like Spedale degli Innocenti (Hospital of the Innocents), San Marco church, Basilica della Santissima Annunziata, and natural jewels like the Botanical Gardens.
