The Boboli Gardens, Florence

The Boboli Gardens, Florence

These beautiful gardens set behind Pitti Palace comprise one the largest parks in Florence, spanning 11 acres (about the size of eight football fields). They’re a giant maze, and perfect place to take the little ones for a wander among flowerbeds, tree-shrouded paths, and 16th- to 18th-century statues. (There are also benches in case they get tired.)
