Iris, the flower symbol of Florence.

Grand Hotel Minerva - Florence

If you are in Florence during the flowering period of the Iris, you can visit this unique garden of its kind (it’s the only botanical garden dedicated to the iris in the whole Europe). The Iris Garden is located in Piazzale Michelangelo, enjoys a unique view of the city and is dedicated to the flower that is found in the ancient banner of Florence. Every year dozens of enthusiasts compete in the International Contest to make the most beautiful iris of which you can buy the precious tubers.
