Overview

Iris Garden ‘Peaceful garden and competitive spirit’ aren’t usually a harmonious pair, but Florence’s Iris Garden exists today thanks to the international gigli contest (the emblematic flower of Florence), founded in 1954 near Piazzale Michelangelo. Be sure not to miss this gem in April and May when it hosts the competition for the most beautiful iris hybrid of the year – you’ll be pleasantly surprised by a stunning panoramic view of Florence and a lush mosaic of colors.
