Best time to visit the Boboli Gardens

Weekday vs Weekend

  • Weekdays: You'll see fewer visitors than weekends, allowing you to enjoy a more peaceful and intimate experience with nature. Enjoy more space to appreciate the beauty of the gardens, take photographs without interruptions, and soak up the historical ambiance.
  • Weekends: These days are more suitable for families or groups of friends who have limited weekday availability. A lively atmosphere with more people might also be preferable for those who enjoy a vibrant and social atmosphere.








Very Crowded

Peak season vs Low season

  • Peak Season (April - September): Florence sees pleasant temperatures, blooming flowers, and lush greenery creating a picturesque setting. Expect more tourists during these months. At this time, the gardens are at their most vibrant, offering a delightful experience for nature and art enthusiasts.
  • Low Season (November to March): The low season sees cooler temperatures, occasional rain, and possible snow in winter. Fewer tourists visit during the winter months, providing a more peaceful and serene experience. The gardens may not be as lush, but you can enjoy a quieter visit and explore at a relaxed pace.

How long should I spend at Boboli Gardens?

The ideal duration at Boboli Gardens is entirely up to you and what you want to experience! On average, visitors usually spend about 1.5 to 2 hours exploring. However, if you're an art aficionado or simply enjoy basking in lush greenery, why rush? You could easily lose track of time wandering through the majestic gardens and discovering hidden corners. So, prepare to dedicate an easy half-day for a complete experience of both the palace and the gardens.
