This ticket wasn't necessary because when we came there weren't a lot of people lining up to buy tickets! I loved Boboli Gardens but we went at the wrong time of day - 2pm and it was 33 degrees! There's was no water fountain available which made it difficult to walk in the scorching heat. However, the view and the garden itself was beautiful. I would be visiting again.

Although there was no queue to buy tickets, as we visited midweek in June, I can imagine the queues. The gardens themselves are beautiful and the views well worth the visit.

Easy reservations and all the details well explained ... really easy to use ... it was a precious help to not waste time on site ... concrete contribution for a good holiday

Bring water, a lot of water. And come in the spring

Incredibly easy to pick up tickets and enter, 10/10
