Botanical gardens | Florence

One of my favorite places in Florence is the "Orto botanico" - the botanical gardens. I love to come here for a walk and, not least, to take photos.

The botanical garden of Florence is the third oldest in the world. It was founded in 1545 by Cosimo dei Medici, and although it ain't the biggest or most beautiful botanical garden I have seen, it sure is a wonderful place.

For more info visit the website of the Orto Botanico.
