The reason I’ve only given this park 3 stars is that a lot of it is so untidy and unkempt! Ok I come from England where our gardens tend to be very tidy and loved, but so much of this park seems to be left...More

Yes - many many different species of trees but interesting for all that. Probably a good idea to have some deet in your pocket as there are certainly some pretty vicious (and invisible!) biting insects hiding in the bushes. Next door to the Villa Giulia,...More

Many University botanical gardens have free access, so we paid the 12 euros with high expectations. The garden is medium sized, plants are interesting. We did not enjoy due to mosquitos, each of us had 3-4 stings.

These Gardens are located near Foro Italico and bounded on two sides by Foro Italico Umberto 1 and Via Lincoln, it is also Stop 5 on the Red line of the Sightseeing Bus. After viewing the English Gardens and the seafront promenade we thought that...More

A great place to relax and unwind in the city. We spent several hours wandering through the various plants and enjoying the beautiful weather.

OK so you wouldn’t expect Kew Gardens but this was really disappointing - particularly for 6 euros a head. Overgrown, dirty, badly maintained - this could be such s lovely place as it has a lot of lovely specimens but goodness knows where the gate...More
