The Medici created gardens in Florence and the surrounding hills with grottoes, statues, boschetti and waterworks. Later perspective gardens were designed in conjunction with the villa, often with terraces, and the early twentieth century marked the revival of the Italian formal garden. This rich heritage offers a fascinating programme of visits in the spring flowering season. The gardens chosen are mostly private, and the vibrant city of Florence with its art treasures, churches and markets is an additional attraction.
Our comfortable, welcoming hotel in the heart of Florence is a perfect base. Originating as a palazzo in the sixteenth century, and now well restored, it retains its frescoed ceilings and architectural features.
A comfortable minibus will be used for gardens outside the town and those inside will be reached on foot.
