There is a hill in the Boboli Gardens, which offers a spectacular panorama of the city.
The Boboli Gardens have a hill, offering unparalleled views of the surrounding hills, the Palazzo Pitti and the entire Florence. To get to the Garden of the Knights, the highest point of the park is difficult, but the view of the city is worth it, is not it? :)
Here, on a hill, is the Porcelain Museum (entrance to the museum is included in the ticket price in the Boboli Garden).
From here you can walk down to Viatollone and to get to Izolotto - pond with a copy of the fountain by Giambologna "Ocean", and from there to reach the south-eastern part of the park in Porto Romano.
