Torrigiani Garden - Serra Grande
The Torrigiani garden with nearly seventeen acres hidden in the heart of Florence, is the largest privately owned garden in Europe situated within city boundaries.
It is very well known for the extraordinary wealth of its tree and plant species from all parts of the globe; the old and new greenhouses, and the covered lemon houses bear witness to this. In these perfect surroundings various courses are held, on the art of gardening and painting. Renowned in the sixteenth century as a botanical garden it had a revival in the early nineteenth century when the Marquis Pietro Torrigiani inherited the property and started acquiring the surrounding land.
The Torrigiani family will be pleased to welcome Eurelectric guests inside the charming Serra Grande & Serra del’800, two incredible glasshouses of 500sqmt and 200sqmt, dipped in the green garden.
