    The Boboli & Bardini Gardens

    November 17, 2017 in Italy ⋅ 🌙 10 °C

    Had thought to do a day trip to Siena but woke up feeling off so decided against it. Hopefully we didn't miss too much (or we'll just have to come back and go another time 😁).

    Instead made it out for a late lunch of souvlaki - nice if a little salty. Then to Boboli and Bardini gardens (a few streets apart and one ticket will get you into both). Not super impressive as gardens go but was still nice just walking around in the sun (much warmer today - at times was tshirt weather). Great views from the top out over Florence. Cool statues but then we're not experts. Fort Belvedere was closed but would've been nice to see.

    Skipped the porcelain museum but did see the Buonalenti grotto - pretty cool if quite random with all the effort put in to make it look like a real cave.

    Got a Thai massage which we both needed and then grabbed some fresh  bread and biscotti for tomorrow's  breakfast and dinner for tonight (pasta, meatballs and eggplant - yum). Home to rest for our last full day in Florence.

    Italy is playing Argentina (rugby) at the stadium here tomorrow but think we'll give it a miss - a shame the ABs don't happen to be playing here. Will see how we go!

    Boboli Park & Museen im Palazzo Pitti

    September 21, 2016 in Italy ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Nach 3 km Fußweg durch die Innenstadt von Florenz und am innenstädtischen Fluß Arno entlang, erreichen wir den Boboli Park. Die 10 Euro Eintritt kamen uns für einen Park am Anfang etwas happig vor, selbst wenn man hier einen schönen Blick auf Florenz hat. Nach unserer Parktour haben wir festgestellt, dass zwei Museen inbegriffen sind. Eins für moderne Kunst und Mode (hier fanden auch Modenschauen statt) und ein Museum für alte Schätze / Goldarbeiten. Letzteres war interessant, Fotos leider verboten. Dabei hätten sich selbst die bemalten Decken der Ausstellungsräume als Motiv angeboten. Wenn man die Kunst wirklich genießen will, sollte man allein für die Museen ein paar Stunden einplanen. Wir haben nicht so lange gebraucht 😉Read more
