Tourists from all over the world visit Florence every year for the works of art in its museums and its many churches with their characteristic façades. Especially in fine weather, however, the city on the Arno offers the opportunity to enjoy its views and also many artistic masterpieces in the open air in its many gardens: the Boboli Garden is certainly the most famous, to which are added the Rose Garden, with sculptures by Jean Michel Folon, and the Iris Garden, both near Piazzale Michelangelo. Botany enthusiasts will find the Giardino dei Semplici and the Orti Dipinti community garden, while cinema lovers at the Giardino dell’Orticoltura will retrace the steps of some scenes from ‘Amici miei – II atto’ by Mario Monicelli (1982) and ‘Sotto una buona stella’ by Carlo Verdone (2014).
