Head to the Pitti Palace in Florence to meet your guide and start your tour of the Boboli Gardens. Designed for Cosimo I de’ Medici in the 16th century, the Italian gardens became a model for royal estates all around Europe.

Use your skip-the-line ticket to bypass any entrance lines, and step straight inside. Stroll along avenues, flanked with fountains, statues, and grottoes, and admire terraces bedecked with greenery. As you walk, you’ll learn how the garden’s works of art are believed to have hidden meanings and symbolic significance.

Hear about the Roman gods and mythical heroes who are represented by artists from ancient days to contemporary times. The Artichoke Fountain, a bronze statue of Neptune, and a secret garden are just a few of the highlights. 

Before your tour ends, head to the highest point of the gardens for a panoramic view of Florence. Your tour finishes after 1.5 hours.
