This three-hour long tour takes you away from the hustle and bustle of the busy streets of Florence, from the scalding rays of Tuscan sun, into the magic world of gardens.
After only a short walk across the Arno river, you will enter the realm of tranquillity, beauty, and freshness.
Essential to Italian lifestyle as a morning coffee or Chianti wine,
Florentine gardens are full of artistic treasures. We will admire the splendours of the Medici gardens, connected to the Uffizi by a secret passage; see the statues of the favourite Medici dwarfs; look at the works of the rapacious sculptor Baccio Bandinelli, a rival of the great Michelangelo, and enjoy a magnificent late nineteenth-century garden created by the famous art dealer (and occasionally art forgerer) Stefano Bardini.
Do not miss this opportunity to see Florence at its very best!
