The gardens extend over a vast area forming an open-air museum with antique and Renaissance statues, grottoes, and large fountains. Exploring its numerous and varied walks one is able to evoke the spirit of life at court. The Grotta del Buontalenti is an artificial cave filled with false stalactites and stalagmites, with statues of sheep, shepherds, and Romans goddesses. The cave is located close to the entrance of the Boboli Garden and at the end of the Vasari Corridor.
Good, you need to still queue up with people buying tickets to exchange them (may as well just queue for a ticket?). All in all, good experience, lovely to walk around but just gardens, not colourful

Very nice experience! The Guide Konstantino and the nice bus driver did a very good job to keep us entertained and joyful. Every winery we visited was very beautiful and the wine was top notch! In both tastings we got a plate with cheese and some other things to enjoy our wine with ! The people there were very friendly and also told us everything we needed to know about how their wine was made. I would recommend this tour to everyone who enjoys the beautiful Tuscany scenery als well as a good glass of wine and very nice company.
The gardens are magnificent and full od hidden messages. I am very sorry that the grottoes were closed due to covid restrictions. Very much Worth visiting - the Origin od "Italijan renesančne gardens"... and more (od one Is interested in esotheric conspiracies). Some more benches along the paths would be welcomed by elderly visitors.
I really like nature so I enjoyed my stay in garden. It is huge and you get some astonishing landscapes from there.
