My husband and I were the only ones who had signed up for the tour, so we had the wonderful and knowledgeable guide all to ourselves. She shared wonderful tales with us, and we wondered why we had not discovered this magical place on our first trip to Italy. And, since we had no thou group to keep up with, she tailored the visit to the pace of two old souls on a hot day, stopping often to sit in the shade. Brava!

Not your ordinary garden. If your looking for flowers, this is not the place. If your looking for great landscaping, art built into the various grottos on the property, views from the othersode of the river looking down on Florence, then this is a place you don't want to miss. Be prepared to walk in this huge place and to see the wonder our sculptures and buildings on the property. Another must see while in Florence, all guided by a wonderful tour guide with the love of the work they do.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of the Gardens. We had never been before and we were delighted to be able to see them. The Gardens are very large and it was extremely helpful to have a guide with us. Our guide, Samuele, was terrific. Very knowledgeable and extremely pleasant. He was also appreciative of the many hills in the Gardens and how best to avoid the steepest ones! I would definitely suggest a half day here. The views are fantastic as well!

Francesco was fantastic: great knowledge and enthusiasm. Views from on high are amazing and a hidden treasures. My husband and I are still debating the grotto but I absolutely loved it. Great combo tour with the Pitti Palance. And Francesco recommended a great restaurant for lunch as well!
