Gardens in Rome and Florence, including Vatican Gardens

Jump to last reply

I am a gardener and love visiting public and private gardens where ever I travel.

We were in Italy in 2011 and didn't get a chance to see the Vatican Gardens. We will be in Rome for 6 nights in October this year and I really want to see the gardens this time around.

I see on the Vatican site that tickets are not available for October yet. I'm guessing these open up 90 days or so before the dates. Does this sound right?

Does anyone have any idea if these tickets book up quickly when they are released?

Also, does anyone know of any other gardens that I could visit while in Rome? We will spend time in the Borghese gardens of course.

We have 5 nights in Florence before we will be in Rome. Last time around we wanted to see the Boboli Gardens but it rained the day we had planned to go and decided to bump them for other activities. Are there any other gardens near Florence anyone can recommend?

This trip we have fewer "must sees" on our list and more time for strolling and sitting and just Being in Italy.

We will not have a car so anything we see has to be accessible by foot or public transportation.

Thank you all.

Cindy P.
