How to visit the Bardini Garden? The Bardini Garden, since the Middle Ages, has belonged to rich families that have followed one another. Its first destination was agricultural, and then over the years it became one of the most beautiful Italian gardens to visit.
In the early years of the twentieth century, it passed into the property of the collector Stefano Bardini (from which it took its current name), called the “prince of antique dealers”, and was used by the owner as a privileged and spectacular place in which to welcome his customers.
Currently in the Bardini Garden it is possible to admire three different gardens that differ in styles and times of creation:
- the Italian garden, with the magnificent Baroque staircase;
- the English wood which, with its exotic elements, represents a rare example of an Anglo-Chinese garden;
- the agricultural park where a new orchard has found its place and the splendid pergola of wisteria which every spring gives a wonderful show of scents and colors.
