The Boboli gardens represent much more than just the private gardens of one of the most influential European Renaissance family. Here it is where the first Opera play was ever sung, it is the second Italian garden in history, and today it is a fine example of different garden techniques (the Italian, the English and the French ones). It is also an alchemical pathway, and its rhythm is given by the hidden statues and paths that can lead you to philosophical enlightment.
Furthermore, the ticket is also valid for:
- the Bardini Gardens which hold part of an exclusive collection of statues from the Baroque period and a fine example of English gardens.
- the China museum perched on top of the hill, where a fine collection of china mostly from Southern Italy and France is displayed in what was the former Casino del Cavaliere, built as a retreat for intellectual conversations in the 18th century.
