Gardens Not to Miss in Florence: Iris Garden
Summer is closer. You can feel it, literally. The heat is here, the tourism is accelerating, Florence just looks increasingly beautiful. In this case, it may be a little convenient for you to know some of the most beautiful places in Florence: the gardens. For this episode of ‘gardens not to miss’, we’re talking about the Iris Garden.
When the flowers are blooming in Spring, the Iris Gardens open for the public. Known to the Florentine locals as ‘giglio’, due to its size the garden almost allows you to forget that you’re in a city. The nature simply surrounds you.
Take yourself down Piazzale Michelangelo, you’ll see a sign designating the Iris Garden on a steep hill. A panorama of Florence is there for all to see, free entry, 2.5 hectares of land for you to explore, a wonderful pond, olive trees, hundreds of different kinds of flowers, and the permanent exhibition of the ‘Tall and Border Bearded Irises’.
Garden days are between the 25th of April and the 20th of May, from Monday to Friday: 10am to 1pm and 3pm to 7.30pm. Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 7pm.
