One of my favorite places to go in Florence is Pitti Palace and its Boboli Gardens. The palace had begun being built in the FIFTEENTH CENTURY, and many affluent Florentine families have lived in it, each leaving behind a little bit more history and wealth. It’s now a museum with tons of famous paintings and artworks. Behind it is the gardens, designed by the same guy who designed the Gardens of Versailles. The gardens are overwhelmingly beautiful and there is so much space to see. Everywhere you go is a little treasure, like a Renaissance sculpture or a mesmerizing fountain.
For us FIT/Polimoda students, it’s free entrance, so there’s nothing better than taking advantage of this place. Here are some photos from my visits:
