After the hustle and bustle of Lucca it is well worth finding the Botanical Gardens and enjoying the tranquility of them. Just to wander around in the coolness after the heat of the day if wonderful. Evening concerts are held in the Botanical Gardens where the paths are lit with tea lights. A magical experience.

The botanic gardens were quiet, elegant and simply stated. The plant material is impressive especially the age of some of the trees. Most of the specimens are clearly labeled and some of the larger trees show size comparisons. Get there early as it opens and you have the whole place to yourself!

I spent a blissful 2 hours or so wandering through these pretty gardens and admiring the plant life; resting on a well placed bench and soaking up the sun for a while. There is lovely pond with wooden bridge which is of course a great attraction for children, and of course the children are also fascinated by the inhabitants of... More

To visit a botanical garden, especially one that is not very big, but we spent a pleasant hour or so wandering about and sitting by the pond reading our books, watching a brave mother watching her children walk across the 'bridge' over the pond, being a plank with one handrail! Cannot say much about the plants as they were mainly... More

A pleasant way to while away an hour, strolling around these small but attractively laid out gardens. Some huge trees and a pretty little pond.

With 200 year old Sequoias and a beautifully maintained lilly pond, the Orto is a pleasant natural respite form the stone and masonry of Lucca. Having said that, if you're in town for anything less then two days, there are more dramatic ways to mark your time in Lucca. 3 euros buy your entrance but you can buy a combined... More

We took a train from Florence to Lucca especially to walk round the ramparts of the town. Beautiful weather, warm with lovely refreshing breeze after the humidity of Florence. Came off the wall several times to look at a church or two and then found the Botanical Gardens by chance.Lovely peaceful place and very well looked after and only 3... More
