    Default Monasteries and gardens

    Would like recommendations on monasteries/abbeys to visit as well as formal gardens. My sister and I will be traveling throughout Tuscany in May by rental car and would like to visit the best ones, but don't want to pay a great deal in admission fees. In looking through some information online, it appears that a lot of these are not accessible to the public or charge a great deal to enter. Thank you for your help

    Default Gardens to visit in May


    Below I cam offering several links to articles about gardens that the DT team has visited over the years, with our impressions and suggestions:

    This is an overview of some of the special gardens within the city center of Florence:

    More details on the Boboli gardens - which is truly spectacular: https://www.visitflorence.com/floren...i-gardens.html

    The Bardini Gardens offer amazing views of the city - https://www.visitflorence.com/floren...i-gardens.html

    And of course one of the Medici gardens: https://www.visitflorence.com/what-t...-castello.html

    In Tuscany you should definitely look into this one with Pinocchio:


    These gardens come with a double treat - villas, and gardens:


    As for monasteries with gardens or parks, some of my favorites are in Casentino:


    Buon Viaggio,
