beauties exactely in the city center of Florence and, please,

The Bardini Garden is the most ancient of these two Gardens, it has a special nice story that follows the life of the families that bought it.
The Garden was redefined with its actual look at the beginning of the last century by Stefano Bardini. In 2008, after many years of restoration, it has been opened to the public. An unforgettable and “NOT TO BE MISSED” view of Florence.
