In this hillside oasis, you'll find myriad statuary, wild birds, and a coffeehouse with strong Italian coffee and views of the red-roofed city and hills beyond. Sit beside one of the tree-shaded fountains, then stroll through the wisteria-canopied walkways. There's also a museum next door where you can catch interesting exhibits and concerts.

  • Could have been better for the money you have to pay to enter - 5 euro per person. Although the grass was freshly cut, the garden itself looks a bit abandoned. It has a nice view on the steps, but you don't have direct access to them since it's entrance is locked.

  • A hidden treasure in busy Florence. You can roam through the garden easily (takes about 1 hour). There is a little restaurant at the summit as well as a Florentine mansion with great views of the city
