The garden is nice and I have to say I ran in to it. The price is very low it's not expensive but you don't have much to see there. It's a place to sit and enjoy nature and take a break.

Had a welcome break here from the crowds for an hour or so . Some beautiful old trees from all over the world, pretty well labelled. We visited in October so not so many flowers but greenhouses with cacti and tropical plants. Couple of euros to get in, to help support the upkeep. Take a sandwich and have a peaceful... More

This small garden is within the town confines. The overall impression was one of lack of care and attention and we had the feeling that perhaps the gardens were just left without regular maintenance. Not worth visiting, possibly one of the poorest examples f botanical gardens we have visited.

We visited The Botanic Gardens in September, so it all felt rather Autumnal as many plants had finished flowering. Autumn bulbs were in flower & it was interesting to wander round different areas in welcome shade & utilise the seating to rest away from the crowds. It only cost €2.5 & was worth every cent.

Did'nt enjoy the "Botanical Gardens" - looked very dowdy and unkempt - our own garden at home was prettier. Also got badly bit by something!! (mosquito we think) from lots of stagnant water

This quiet area of peace and calm sits very close to the crowds around the Tower and Duomo but offers an escape from that bustle. As a garden there is work to do, but the tree specimens are superb and worth the entry fee alone. The bamboo is likewise astonishing. I have never seen bamboo so big in the UK.... More

This is part of the University of Pisa, but open for plant fans to wander round in return for a couple of euros. You can buy your Universitá da Pisa sweatshirt in the gift shop here, a less tacky souvenir than the universal leaning tower stuff. It's pleasant to get away from the crowds of tourists. Not many find their... More

The plants looked tired and dry, but the layout was nice. A pond with cute turtles and some nice greenhouses. A good location on the way between the central station and the tower.

Found this place by chance and decided to wander round. Not exactly the best kept gardens, but interesting enough.
