Travelling all over the world to find beautiful places and rediscover contact with nature, being wondered by the smells and the colors of flowers and plants, admiring the architecture and the geometry of the gardens: garden tourism is a kind of tourism based on travels and trips to locations with the possibility of visiting gardens which are considered important in the history of gardening.

This type of tourism is very requested from British travellers but it’s developing all over the world: “garden tourists” like travelling to locations with significant gardens and they often decide to join organized garden travels and tours.

Tuscany is a land rich of gardens and parks that tourists can visit every time of the year: there are about 150 venues people can visit, having a “time travel” starting from Renaissance to the present, passing through Romanticism. medici villa garden In Florence, there are lots of site to visit, like Boboli Garden, Bardini Garden, Iris Garden (this flower is the icon of Florence – this visit is feasible in May, during the Iris flowering period), the Garden of Orti Oricellari, Torrigiani’s Garden, Giardino dei Semplici and many more.

Not only Florence: as mentioned, the whole Tuscany is rich of gardens, botanical gardens and parks that visitors can enjoy. Moving to Pisa (the town of the leaning tower) visitors can admire the Garden of Scotto, the natural park of San Rossore and the botanical Gardens.

In Lucca, moving to West, tourists can go to the Lucca’s Botanical Garden and several wide and coloured gardens that are part of famous beautiful villas located in the suburbs of Lucca.

In Collodi, very closed to the village of Pinocchio (at few hundred meters from Pescia, the town of the flowers), there’s the splendid Garden of Villa Garzoni. In Livorno visitors can have a walk in Pertini’s Park.

For those who search for ideas for their garden or villa furnitures, we suggest a trip to the numerous vivariums of Pistoia, that is universally known in Italy as the “town of plants”.
