Orto Botanico di Firenze – is the botanical gardens in Florence and an oasis of calmness in a buzzing city. I have never ever visited a city as loud as Florence. It is actually very, very exhausting. To escape the noises I went into the botanical gardens, what was a good plan for proximately 15 minutes and then some groups arrived. The botanical garden looks more like the garden the Monte Christo or another mysterious Earl who left his huge Villa behind and the beautiful garden is left in the wilderness.
The doors from the Orangerie were open and the smell of the blossoms was beguiling. That is how the perfume laboratory of luxury brand Hermes must smell, it reminded me a lot of Marrakech.
The Botanical gardens may be disappointing if you are looking for a huge Museum-like garden, but it is a beautiful place to unwind.
