The botanical garden of Florence is the third oldest in the world. It was founded in 1545 by Cosimo dei Medici, and eventhough it ain't the biggest or most beautiful garden, it sure is a wonderful place.
The garden is located just a few streets behind Piazza San Marco. Here you can walk around in green and calm surroundings, you can relax on a bench in the shadow and even watch a few lazy cats. In the botanical garden you also find several greenhouses filled with light and beautiful palms.
