The garden has a central location, making it a good escape place if you are tired of the heat and touristy streets in the center. At first, the place made me quite depressed, since so many plants were dry or completely dead. I understand it is very hot in mid July, but I would still like to see better care... More

In mid July it was pretty hot, as and a result there wasn't terribly much in the Orto Botanico besides some massive trees, a wide variety of cactus, and a lot of dead looking stumps. However, it was nice and shady and peaceful and we spent a relaxed hour wondering around it. It was 2,50 euros for adults and 1,50... More

My wife and I spent a pleasant afternoon here enjoying the tranquility and reading our books on the benches. It was lovely and a good alternative to sitting on the grass with the crowds near the tower. As for the garden itself, it was nice if perhaps not in its heyday any more. There were a few weeds here and... More

Not a large garden but some interesting plants and very interesting.Wonderful bamboo and some beautiful flowers in glasshouse.A little bit more attention is required in certain areas.we have now visited this twice in 2010 and again in 2014.A pleasant way to spend a couple of hours away from all the tourists.

Visited in March on a dull day. Defiantly not the best kept or best example of a garden you have to pay to enter. Sure there are some lovely plants if you look hard enough but the boarders are not well kept and on the whole extremely disappointing. If you've been to Wisley or Kew in England this is no... More

It was a nice garden but still quite bare. Well it was in March so a lot still wasn't in bloom. The enterance fee was 2,5 € per person. Still nice to visit the oldest botanical garden in Europe. They were building a new greenhouse.

Unloved and work-in-progress would be the kindest description. It was a wet day so probably not seen at its best but even sunshine would be hard pushed to improve what is at best a random collection of trees and plants in terminal decline. The entrance shop did sell an impressive range of printed t-shirts and hoodies so I guess they... More

So this beautiful park is tucked away in a side street. But it is totally worth it! It has plants from all over the world. It's very interesting to see. This park is not for those in a hurry. I recommend you take at least 1 hour to walk around and enjoy the fresh air. You can actually see the... More

pros: nice change in your citytrip, since it slows your pace almost no visitors at the time we went there cons: place seems a bit neglected, yet, this gives the whole thing some extra atmosphere pretty close to the piazza dei miracoli, but you might miss it, since it is a bit hidden ----------------------- if you want to take a...

Maybe these gardens are better to visit in the spring or summer, for in the early autumn this just was boring. There wasn't much to see, the place felt neglected and outdated. I've seen far better and bigger botanical gardens and this just was a dissappointment mostly. Still, it was nice to be out of the crowds for a while... More
