Sheltered by the South Eastern part of Le Mura, the Garden is a peaceful place to spend an hour away from the bustle. A few more benches would be appreciated. The highlight is the pond, which you can cross by a narrow wooden bridge. Make sure you stop to read the Legend of 17th Century Lucchese beauty Lucida Mansi and... More

A fairly hidden spot, which however is a true pearl. It might be very small as a botanical garden, but it is proportioned to the size of the town. Perfect for a 1 hour visit to get out of the summer heat, protected by the shade of the trees.

This is a quite modest Botanical Garden as such gardens go. However it was a very pretty and peaceful oasis for a sheltered walk and sit down. Charges were €2 for Seniors - €3 other adults. Lovely place to bring some lunch and relax

Tucked away just inside the city walls, the garden is not large and is mainly informal with some magnificent specimen trees. The edible plants section was a bit haphazard and not worth spending time on. For a quiet change from the hustle and bustle of the main sites, it is good. I rushed it as thunder was rumbling around and... More

The Lucca Orto Botanico is worth visiting if you are looking for a peaceful hour walking through a varied landscape of trees and plants. The entrance fee is modest. One can also view the gardens from the Mura walk above the town. Within the gardens (which are actually quite small) there are a lot of mature trees and shrubs, a... More

While not large in area, the botanical garden in Lucca is a quiet and pretty place to visit. It is located in Via del Giardino Botanico just under the City's wall in the south east area.

Lucca Botanical Garden is an oasis calm within the charming city of Lucca. It nestles against the old city walls and is accessed from the Via del Giardino Botanico. The entry charge is only 3 euros and for that price its worth a visit. It's not large, it takes about half an hour to wander round, but has quite a... More

This is a very pleasant place to visit. I don't think September is the best time but it was still lovely and there are some intriguing plants, including an ancient giant cedar tree. After seeing the gardens from within, walk up on the city wall and look over them from above for an overview.

The gardens were certainly worth a visit but could do with a cafe! The turtles in the pond at the far end of the gardens were very entertaining!

Got this with a combined ticket with the 2 towers! Liked the medicine garden, succulent houses & the pond with the terrapins! Only problem was that we followed the signs to the toilet but never found it!
