It may take some time to find this secluded spot, but you'll be happy when you do. Compared to the nearby Boboli gardens, this smaller location has a more intimate feel. Originally belonging to the Mozzi family in the 1500s, the property was purchased and renovated back to its old standards in 2000, and then opened for the public. The Baroque Staircase is the highlight of the park, but be sure to see the English garden and the Chinese Dragon Canal fountain as well, before taking in aerial views of the city. If the discovering the park (which has quite a steep climb) has left you winded, there is a small restaurant and cafe located on site.
