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 There wasn't much to see, the place felt neglected and outdated.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

To me, this garden looks like a hobby gardener tried to do something but failed. Most of the area is deserted, pots fell over, dead plants blocking the way, nothing interesting to see except Venus fly traps of which also some were already dead for a very very long time. They put no effort in it, the entrance was hard... More

Hmm not much to add to what has been written. We were also bitten by mosquitoes, lots of plants were dead or overrun with weeds, a shame as it could be really nice. My guide book (rough guide) seemed to recommend it, not sure when they last visited it. It didn't cost much to get in to be honest, so... More

As lots of other people said there isn't really much to look at. Better save your time and do something else. And if you go, watch out for mosquitoes! They will literally eat you!
