Giardino di Boboli, part of Palazzo Pitti, is a gorgeous and very expansive complex of manicured gardens.  It is a great way to spend a couple of hours, and can be paired with Giardino Bardini to have a great day outside…bring a picnic!

This is an interesting place…it started out as a park where people brought their birds so they could sing together & their owners could sit and chat or play cards.  While these bird owners still come to do this, unfortunately it has become a bit of a tourist trap.  I guess these places can’t be a well-kept secret forever.  But it is great to come here on a warm Sunday afternoon & listen to the birds; sounds beautiful!
