The Giardino Bardini is an Italian Renaissance garden of the Villa Bardini in the hilly part of Oltrarno, offering fine views of Florence, Italy. Opened only recently to the public, it is one of Florence's well kept secrets.
The garden is composed of three separate areas, each created in a different time period, which adds to the architectural and agricultural diversity. The park's center contains the grand staircase that was constructed in the 17th century. On one side of the staircase you can find the Anglo-Chinese garden created in the 19th century. The other side of the staircase hosts the garden's agricultural park. The garden boasts many statues and panoramic views over the city. Wildlife in the garden includes rock pigeons, blackbirds and woodpigeons.

Lovely gardens with a great view of the city! Much better than the neighbouring Boboli gardens, both since they are more compact but mostly because they are in a much better condition. You can enjoy flowers, trees, fountains, statues and much more. The only downside side was that some small portions are currently closed for renovations.

Lovely gardens but lots of areas closed off and not enough seating as you walk around. Great cafe and a toilet too...

Beautiful gardens and amazing views. You need to pay the entrance and make sure you have cash (5€) they do not accept card, I had to go down to get cash from an ATM, and damn it was hot that day.

Huge garden with a lot of great views over the city and many things to see. Bring some protection from the sun (sunscreen, hat or even an umbrella) and lots of water! It can get unbearable during hot days as there aren't many place to get water
