El Jardín de Bóboli (en italiano: Giardino di Boboli) es un famoso jardín situado en la ciudad de Florencia, en la región de Toscana, Italia. Se encuentran en la margen sur del río Arno, tras el Palacio Pitti, construido por los Pitti, rivales de los Médicis, la familia noble que controlaba Florencia.
Cannot believe the amount of people here confusing Stoldo Lorenzi's 'Fountain of the Fork' in the Boboli Gardens with Bartolomeo Ammannati's Fountain of Neptune at Piazza della Signoria. The latter is a collossal marble Neptune based upon Cosimo I de Medici and reflects the Florentine's 16th century naval prowess. It is completely free since it is in a public space, and is always open for the same reason. There are no ducks to feed, maybe the odd pigeon though, but the fountain keeps good comany in the beautiful piazza with the likes of Bandinelli's Hercules and Cellini's Perseus with the head of Medusa (also free). The reason people commenting earlier expected something bigger is because they were looking at a completely different fountain.
Cool, seating around this area is great, closed at 730pm EXACTLY, so make sure you have enough time to walk around and make a small picnic.
I thought I was going to see the same Statue of Neptune from the pictures but it's just a dirty pond with a very rough ugly statue different from the one in the square. Overgrown with grass. Not at all impressive. I really want my money back.
Nice quiet spot to watch the ducks and rest on a bench.
Was expecting something a bit more impressive, at least bigger :)
