Giardino Bardini

Giardino Bardini Review

Garden lovers, those who crave a view, and those who enjoy a nice hike should visit this lovely villa and garden, whose history spans centuries. The villa had a walled garden as early as the 14th century; the "Grand Stairs"—a zigzag ascent well worth scaling—has been around since the 16th. The garden is filled with irises, roses, and heirloom flowers, and includes a Japanese garden and statuary. A very pretty walk (all for the same admission ticket) takes you through the Giardino di Boboli and past the Forte Belvedere to the upper entrance to the giardino.

  • GPS in Tuscany

    Hello friends.
    I'm planning to drive a rental car in Southern Tuscany for a week.
    How reliable the GPS is in Tuscany? Do I really need a detailed local map or GPS will be good enough?
    Thanks for your help. Read more
