The Boboli Gardens

Florence, Italy

One of the world’s most enchanting open-air museums, the Boboli Gardens in Florence, Italy, have long been admired as a natural escape in this bustling city. Dating back nearly 600 years, the gardens are filled with centuries-old oak trees, murmuring fountains and beautiful sculptures. Among the highlights are the Viottolone, a large avenue flanked by historical statues and towering cypresses, and the Giardino del Cavaliere (Garden of the Knight), whose walls were built by Michelangelo in 1529.
