Enjoy a coffee and a stroll amongst some of the most beautiful gardens of Florence.

The Bardini garden has only been open to the public for about the last 10 years. Therefore this place, that offers one of the most extraordinary views of the historic center of Florence, has remained relatively little known by Italians and visitors alike.

At the Caffè Belvedere you can sip your coffee or aperitif or even have a bite to eat with sandwiches, mixed platters and desserts on offer. All of this under a beautiful loggia installed in the 1800s while you take in the panoramic view in the tranquil environment that the Bardini garden offers.

While you are required to pay the 7 Euro to enter the garden itself, doing so will grant access to both the Bardini and more famous Boboli garden as well as the Medici Treasury (Museo degli Argenti), the Costume Gallery (Galleria del Costume) and the Porcelain Museum (Museo delle Porcellane) of the Pitti Palace.

The Bardini garden has three different access points:
- Costa San Giorgio 2
- Via dei Bardi 2/red
- Access from the Boboli gardens
