THE IRIS GARDEN

A Floral Oasis in the City

Florence is turning on a wonderful show for Spring and the Iris Garden, known as the Giardino dell’Iris is no exception.  Open for one month each year, the garden will be open until the 20th May and we would suggest a visit if you are in town.
Enter from Piazzale Michelangelo and you will feel instantly like you are in the country.  Narrow paths will take you on a floral excursion where you can admire the vibrant colours and miraculous displays of nature that these flowers exhibit.  There are over 150 varieties on show and as you wander amongst the olive trees, you will be pleased that you escaped the city-rush to visit this important landmark.  A lovely place also for children but not ideal if you have a stroller as there are also many steps to navigate.

OPEN UNTIL THE 20TH MAY – Piazzale Michelangelo
Monday – Friday : 10.00 – 13.00  | 15.00 – 19.30
Saturday – Sunday : 10.00 – 19.30
Last entrance half an hour before closing.
ENTRANCE to the GARDEN is FREE
