The view of Florence from the Bardini garden

The Bardini garden will be hosting a treasure hunt for all ages on Monday, April 10. This treasure hunt, primarily designed for families with children ages 4 – 10, will encourage and allow guests to to roam and discover the grounds of the beautiful Bardini garden. Not only will there be a treasure hunt, but book readings will be held throughout the green space.

The park features orchards, rose bushes, irises, hydrangeas and runs alongside part of Florence’s medieval wall. It also overlooks the city and offers wonderful views of the Duomo, Palazzo Vecchio, and the Arno.

For €7 a person (free for ages three and under), guests will be able to see all that the grounds have to offer while participating in a fun activity. The book readings are included in the admission, and no reservation is required.

Upon entry, visitors will receive a detailed map of the garden and have to interpret the stages and spots that the treasure hunt leads them to. There will be 12 spots of interest, leading visitors to complete a full tour of the garden. The itinerary will start at the main entrance at Costa San Giorgio, downhill to the lower part of the garden and then up the Baroque style staircase.

The readings of picture books for families listen to will take place in some of the most iconic spots of the garden.

The treasure hunt will be held at the following times:

10 – 11:30 am

12 noon – 1:30 pm

2:30 – 4 pm

4:30 – 6 pm.

These events are a great way to discover the Bardini garden and have some family fun in a nature setting. (Abby Capra)
