Villa Bardini in Florence is located at the highest point of the city, near the Boboli Gardens .
Villa Bardini was built in the first half of the seventeenth century thanks to the architectural project by Gherardo Silvani . The Villa is embellished by an English garden with sculptures and fountains with water games .
The Kaffeehaus with the cave, which still exists today and can be visited, dates back to the eighteenth century. The garden is divided into three sections: Italian, English and the agricultural park. The garden is also very important for the variety of wisteria from far away. It is thought that it was brought from China by Marco Polo.
Villa Bardini has sixty rooms and lounges on four levels and houses the offices of the Bardini and Peyron Monumental Parks Foundation . The Villa today is an exhibition space that hosts temporary exhibitions.
In addition, the Roberto Capucci Museum and the Annigoni Museum and a space for contemporary art exhibitions were also opened in 2007 and 2008.
