Guided tour

Boboli, the alchemical garden

firenze alchemica itinerari

The hermetic symbolism of the garden to rediscover the ancient alchemical path created by the Medici.

Boboli, the alchemical garden

The Boboli Gardens were conceived by Cosimo I and Cosimo II de ‘Medici as the intimate, secret place where only certain individuals were allowed to enter. Mysterious statues will introduce us to arcane spaces such as the forest, the labyrinth, the “pathway”, the “island of delights”: all of these together form a mystical-initiatory path that proceeds in “stages” and which is marked by symbols, myths and allegories still capable of speaking to their own interiority.

Please note that masks are mandatory!
