We spent hours in these gardens as they were so quiet and relaxing. After admiring the plants we sat on one of the (many) benches reading and watching other people

Must be seen !! plants from over the world, small but tidy and natty garden. If you like nature you have to go there alone or with friends/ Family. If you go alone there, you find yourself, if you go there together with someone your relation with them goes deeper...some corner are really unique. Some roman period time area deserve... More

I very much enjoyed this Garden, on a warm autumn day, and during a break from visiting the historical attractions in the area. It has a good collection of various plants with some really good thematic sections. Lots of locals were there during that time so it seems to be a popular and relaxing place for many others as well.

A great botanical park for a reasonable price. Entry is €4 per adult. Amazing diversity of plants. If it is a really hot day then you can enjoy the coolness of certain areas within the park, or just the shade from the amazing trees.

This is one of Italy's best/most diverse botanical gardens. There are also some small Roman ruins within the garden. It has the widest cactus and succulents I have ever seen. This is a great place to cool down on a hot day and to get out of the touristy areas.

A calming oasis in the middle of the city and with fine views of the Roman Ampitheatre. Main exhibits clearly labelled and helpful and welcoming staff at the kiosk - interesting walkway with plants mentioned in the bible with references!

A lovely place to sit and enjoy the shade, the greenery, the trickling fountain and also fascinating to see some of the interesting plants. Wear some insect repellent though, we got bitten on our legs after going there.

I'd envisaged a couple of hours greenery, possibly sitting with a book. After paying €4 and collecting plan and plant list I made my way into a rather grey garden. But there were interesting plants to see. However halfway through I was attacked by voracious mosquitoes biting through my clothing. I moved away from the water and into the sun... More

The Botanical Garden is about 5 Euros entrance and takes about 1 hour to walk around. There are public toilets but no where to eat or drink as far as we could see. There is plenty of shade so if its a hot day its not too bad. There are lots of unusual plants and trees, a pond with water... More
