When visiting Florence people often stop at the Accademia and the Uffizi. Yet, Florence has several other stunning sites and museums that often get overlooked by visitors. The best example are no doubt the Boboli Gardens and Palazzo Pitti.

The Boboli Gardens where first developed in the 16th-century for the Wife of Cosimo de’ Medici. Today, they include an array of stunning views, romantic walks, sculptures, grottos, and elegant courtyards. Discover the history of Florence and of the gardens with your expert English-speaking guide, moving at a pace that suits you.

Next head on to visit the Pitti Palace, which was the favourite residence of the Medici and it was so beautiful that it was later chosen to house Italy’s Royal Family. The Pitti Palace includes lavishly decorated rooms with stunning pictures by some of the greatest European artists. You can choose to see an array of beautiful costumes, elegant statues, an extravagant collection of jewerly pieces, and ancient artworks from the classical and medieval period. Above all, you simply cannot miss the wonderful illusionistic frescoes which enliven many rooms of the complex.
