I was a nice walk up to the rose garden and the view is very nice. The park itself is nice however most roses were either dead or not blooming when we went there end of June.

Absolutely gorgeous! Worth the trip for sure. Taking a cab ride up provides gorgeous views as you leave the city. We loved the variety of roses and the view of both the country and city areas of Tuscany. Don't miss this FREE gem!

Just stumbled upon these gardens. Beautiful spot for a walk amongst florals and chirping birds. Good photo op of the city.

When you go (and you must) to Florence and to Piazza Michelangelo to see the most beautiful sunset over the city, take some minutes to visit this public garden and take pictures of the stunning views.

Overload and fatigue can be the byproduct of 'doing' Florence. This modest sanctuary is a delight. Even a rose garden in January can offer peace, calm and tranquil beauty without a bloom in sight. A lasting living legacy. Very special.
