Boboli Gardens, Florence

Boboli Gardens are situated directly behind the Pitti Palace,
the main seat of the Medici grand dukes of Tuscany at Florence. They are some of the first
and most familiar formal 16th-century Italian gardens.  The gardens were laid out for
Eleonora di Toledo, the wife of Cosimo I de’ Medici. Read more HERE.
It was early, so the photos are a bit dark.

On my first day I went to see first the Pitti Palace - very golden & rich inside! - and from there 
to the Boboli Gardens. It looked really fantastic but the stairs without a reiling where hard to climb.

There were also some modern sculptures, here an example.

Italian stone pines - Pinus pinea - were growing everywhere. They were really fantastic,
the trunks so high & their umbrellas or parasols impressive.

I went to listen three tenors at Auditorium al Ponte Vecchio and they sang also Torna a Surriento.
