This park is a small oasis of cool and calm in a hot busy city. A real plus is the open air cinema that shows films each evening (starting at 9.30pm). The screen and sound are excellent and it even has a bar!

We stumbled over this by accident and stayed here for a while. A lot of students come here to enjoy the sun and spent time with friends. It looked to me as if there is gear to have a summer open air cinema. Try to find out more about it if you go there ein summer.

Beautiful public park, with playground, old walls and ruins, water fountains and large areas for family picnics. You would never know you were in Pisa!

Some of the gardens were cordoned off because of building work, but none was taking place when we were there. The old city walls are interesting, but we couldn't go up on to them, again because of the on-going work. There is a nice children's playground in one part.

When I went large sections of the park were taped off and you could only walk through it. There was no access to the upper sections - the walls etc. - which was very disappointing as it looked like they could have provided some great views.

A lovely little park which we enjoyed for its old 'bits' - ancient walls, gateways and towers and atmospheric aqueduct/viaduct. A very pleasant, quiet stroll.

Pleasant gardens aimed more at families with small children....nice place to sit and escape the heat of the city...there are some new shelters with seats that are covered in Jasmine and Honeysuckle....worth the walk!

Romantic, old-style garden, dim, many beautiful greenery, lovely flowers, ruined walls. One of the most beautiful place I've ever been. There is also a playground for children.
