Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Smaller version of famous garden, won’t take you long to walk around the gardens. Lovely view of Florence.
    The View at the top is worth the walk up!

    Villa was absolutely stunning. So much history there... Medici, Vittorio Emanuele... Beautiful garden. We followed timeline on their website and it was accurate. Just the guide didn't speak English, but there are explanations in every room and additional materials we could that thay gave us, so we could follow the visit. Also some audio guide trough QR code. And surprisingly, visit was free.

    The views of the city are worth the climb. Wear comfortable hiking boots and take water with you. Don't expect many flowers. The garden is about sculptures and views. I enjoyed seeing the many locals sketching the sculptures and relaxing in the meadows.

    Very nice view of the city as you go up to Piazzale Michelangelo. Ideal place for a relaxing walk during spring or summer.

    This is a major river that passes through Tuscany emptying its waters into the Ligurian Sea while passing through regional cities like Florence. You can get a good look at the Arno while crossing one of the city bridges like the famous Ponte Vecchio. If you want to capture the Arno and Ponte Vecchio in the same photo, these can be taken from the roadsides that flank both sides of the river or from sister bridges like Ponte Santa Trinta (northwest) or Ponte alle Grazie (southeast)

    Only open few weeks a year - this not very wellknown little garden is definitely worth a visit for its fabulous display of Iris (it's for free - but please consider a little donation!).

    Villa Gamberai was beautiful - an exception to our visit to Florence. Unfortunately Florence, like Venice, has become unbearable. Crowds everywhere made it impossible to get into most museums and galleries, and when we did get in, it was impossible to see anything because of the number of visitors. Restaurants were full and there were long queues outside many of them. The general impression of the town was that of a machine designed for making money from tourists rather than a city famous for its beauty. Gamberaai gets you away from this, at least.

    You can definitely see the history and beauty of what the gardens used to be, and are working towards being again. There is no admission fee which is nice. We came to see the famous citrus collection and unfortunately they are kept in a locked conservatory until April 15.

    I saw Ennio Morricone at this venue, very well organised and lots of staff to help. I was amazed at how close I was to the stage, I was at the back in the stalls. The atmosphere was amazing the acoustics and lighting just added to the whole experience. Got a bus from St Marco's square number 17, 21 and walked the rest 10 minute walk. There were no buses after the event so booking a taxi would be advisable if staying in Central Florence

    No exotic plants to see when I went but the park was lovely and quiet and had a lovely chilled afternoon relaxing there away from all the noise of the centre. Great little hideaway green space to take a moment to switch off in between exploring the city. Lots of nice shady areas to keep cool as well. Would have been 5/5 if there had been plants in the greenhouse part

    The public is allowed in once an hour on the half hour i. e. 10.30 11.30 etc.
    The interior is stunning. It is one of the most beautiful villas I have ever seen. The gardens are laid out beautifully but not much in bloom this time of year.

    If you are a runner and will be touring Florence stay near this park. It has a 6.8 kilometer loop jogging path -- no traffic, only crossing a handful of not busy streets. I ran very early in the morning -- like 6 to 7 am -- and there were a handful of other joggers so felt safe but not crowded. Plus it is only about 1 mile from the Ponte Vecchio which can be reached by a running path along the Arno river.

    This must have been quite a place when it was built. It's run as a venue for weddings etc now and could do with a little TLC in the garden. But that said, it is magnificent. Take care when driving up the hill to get to the Villa, the road is a nightmare with few passing places. Tip: pay a little extra to access the Villa for even better views and photo opportunities.

    We stayed here for one night to be close to Pisa airport. Quite basic but very clean. Receptionist spoke no English but friendly. Breakfast very basic but think we could have asked for more if we spoke better Italian. Good location. Great town for eating and drinking in lovely beach resort. Bar at end of pier great of an evening to look back at lights of the coast line.
