Is one of the most important examples of Italian garden in the world and is a real open air museum.

For the architectural landscape setting and for the collection of sculptures, ranging from Roman antiquities to the XX century.

Florence The Boboli Gardens

During the government of Cosimo II, the gardens underwent the most important enlargement.

Almost tripling its extension by Giulio Parigi and his son Alfonso, creators of the second axis towards Porta Romana ( the so-called Viottolone ).

Overall, the gardens have a vaguely elongated triangle configuration.

Steep slopes and two almost perpendicular axes that intersect near the Fountain of Neptune which stands out on the landscape.

Part of the garden is dedicated to the Camellia Collection, which began in the XVII century and which today, thanks to the work of the gardeners, has been partly recovered after a period of decline.

The center of the amphitheater was embellished in 1790 by the Egyptian obelisk, the only one in Tuscany and it comes from Heliopolis in Egypt.

In 1840 it was coupled with the large gray granite basin carved in a single block and perhaps coming from the Baths of Caracalla in Rome.
