Rosella was fantastic. We learned a lot about the garden and the rise and fall of the Medici family. Visiting the gardens is a nice alternative to the usual city tours. Since you always have Florence in view from the garden, everything is easy to talk about.

Super experience !! Feeling of floating in the air surrounded by a breathtaking landscape !! I all followed by a toast in the company of the really kind and nice staff!

We had a very interesting tour with Rossella through the Boboli garden. The tips on what we can do with an admission ticket were also very informative!

A visit that has exceeded our expectations since we have learned a lot from our guide and recommended us great places to visit

A great experience. Beautiful. Done very professionally
