So much to see here, and right in the middle of Pisa just 5 minutes from the tower. Really cheap entrance (2.5€).

We visited the gardens next to the leaning tower of Pisa. A small entrance fee is required, over 65's free. August was very hot and the place is a mosquito nightmare!, there are some ponds that were still, no moving water so the mosquitoes were there in abundance, we sat near a pond and they were at us straight away...

If you've arrived with a trillion other people in Pisa, why not shake them off and head to the University's botanical gardens. A range of plants in a walled garden setting. Shows what can be done in a hot climate - and makes for good shade. We loved spotting the lizards and turtles (but less keen on the Mosquitos -... More

Not perfectly kept, but still the oldest botanical garden in Europe, founded by a member of the Medici family. Biloba and magnolia trees of 300 years old. Nice resting point in Pisa.

It was nice to be away from the toerists for a while. The didn't have much flowers But it was nice to walk around in the garden. They even have a pond with turtles. We tied our big scarves (which we use for in churches) around are waist because in some parts are a lot of musquitos. Still the garden... More

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
