Regarded as one of the most picturesque Italian gardens, the design is from the early Renaissance period combined with the rich decoration of the baroque style.

The gardens of Villa Ganberaia are lovely to say the least. Located on Via del Rossellino, they are on a height that gives beautiful views of the city of Florence. The gardens are immaculate and peaceful. Recommended.

This is a wonderful garden, especially the box hedges and the ponds. The view over Florence is an extra plus. It also was very still and quiet the day we were there. Get there by bus 10 + a steep walk.

On the hills around Florence Villa Gamberaia boasts sweeping views over Florence and the Arno valley and sits amidst a spectacular Renaissance Garden. You can get there from Piazza San Marco with Bus nr.10 and then a short walk. www.villagamberaia.com
