If you like to be able to stop and smell the roses, you'll want to check out the Boboli Gardens near the Pitti Palace. Not only can you have a lovely picnic inside when you buy a ticket, but you can also visit the fascinating silver and costume galleries, as well. It's the ideal place to spend a spring or summer day when the plants are full in bloom. The extensive grounds makes it easy to take an entire day to wander around and enjoy history. You can also purchase a ticket that allows you into the Pitti Palace and throughout the gardens and other galleries for a discounted price.
