Walking through Villa Bardini gardens is like taking a journey through 7 centuries of Florentine art and history, as they embody a mix of styles from different times due to the various changes they have experienced over time. In fact, these Florence gardens have medieval and Renaissance origins, first belonging from the thirteenth to the nineteenth century to the Mozzi family and then purchased by the antiquarian Stefano Bardini in 1913, who transformed and enriched them with many architectural elements and decorations collected from all over the world.
The Bardini Gardens look like an English style garden but are embellished with a wonderful Baroque staircase, a Renaissance loggia, a Kaffeehaus, many sculptures and also delightful corners with groves and water channels; but what makes them truly unique are wisteria and hydrangeas pergolas which, during spring flowering, will make you feel like in a tunnel full of colors and scents.
