This was a wonderful tour to take through the beautiful Boboli Gardens! Pam was our guide, and she gave a lovely tour with in depth descriptions/facts about the history of different parts of the Gardens. We went on this tour in the morning during the first part of September, and the weather was fantastic- would recommend to do it in the morning hours if you are traveling to Florence during the summer/early fall.
