Italy . Florence. The Boboli Gardens.

The Boboli Gardens (Giardino di Boboli) is a huge park behind the Palazzo Pitti in Florence, Italy. I visited the park in the afternoon while looking for a place where I could escape the sun for a while. The great lawn of the park was a perfect spot to rest in the shade and enjoy the beautiful view over the city of Florence.

The gardens, that date back to the 16th century, cover an area of 45,000 meters² uphill from the palace. Many sculptures, including Roman antiquities, are exhibited throughout the park, joining fountains and a grotto and making the park an open air museum.

The admission of about 10€ -which is too high for a park in my opinion- includes a few special exhibits, such as the Costume Gallery and the Porcelain Museum.
