Spectacular Boboli Gardens, Italy
View over Florence from Inside the Boboli Gardens

Boboli Gardens - Florence

Gardens in Italy

The name 'Boboli', indicating wooded area has been associated with this part of Florence, since the middle ages, a farming family, the Borgholi, owning some of the land.  According to some of Italy's most famouse ghost stories a Borgholi farmer still wanders the hillsides of the Boboli and is suppose to hav been seen by many visitors to the garden.  

It was Cosimo Medici himself who created these gardens in 1539 who wanted to adorn Brunelleschi's unfinished Palazzo with 'gardens, groves, fountains, fishponds and other suchlike things.'

It is well-worth a visit when in Florence to visit the Boboli gardens and in some instances, this area offers some respite from all the concrete and stone which makes up Florence and it is one of the greenest areas in the city.  When you enter through the gates at the Pitti Palace, it's almost like venturing into another world.
