Absolutely lovely rose gardens for free. A must see on the way to the view point. Beautiful views of Florence as well.

The park is located about halfway up the climb to Piazzale Michelangelo along Scalea dei Monte alle Croci, and offers a brief respite doing the climb. From this garden, you overlook the Arno and the historic district of Florence. There are numerous objets d’art placed...More

You can find this tranquil place just beneath Piazzale Michelangelo (where all the tourists gather) and enjoy the views, the colours and smells of the roses in the spring/summer, the fountains and monuments all for free. You'll need to look out for Folon e il...More

We walked along the river and up the hill and the Rose garden made it worthwhile. Not that many roses that we could see, but still pleasant.

As we returned back down from the Michelangelo we wound our way through the gardens. We did lost at the bottom trying to get out! But the roses and the sculptures were beautiful.
