Originally owned by the Mozzi family, Giardino Bardini was restored in 1913 by Stefano Bardini who also enlarged the villa and lived there with his family. Unfortunately, the garden was neglected and many years have passed before it was restored and opened to public. Today, guests can visit the garden and check out the flower beds of peonies and azaleas in bloom. Inside the villa, there is a collection of works by the Italian painter Pietro Annigoni.
The garden itself consist of marble statues, a beautiful terrace that offers amazing views of Florence, fountains, and a garden restaurant that is considered to be one of the most romantic places in the city. Many say that the best time to visit Giardino Bardini is in April and May.
