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

After to crowds at the tower this was a welcome relief for us and the kids. Cost €2:50 per adult kids under 6 free. It is a university research garden. Not lots of plants and a bit run down but the kids enjoyed exploring the (very tall) bamboo plants and looking at the different lillies and running in the sprinklers(No... More

This botanical garden is very poor, small and being rehabilitated. We stayed 20 minutes only... Good points: it is cheap and the staff is nice.

I am not a botanist. If the botanical gardens in Pisa have any particularly rare or interesting plants in them, then it might be worth a visit if you are sufficiently well informed to be able to appreciate it. However, for the amateur this garden holds little attraction. Poorly maintained in many areas - clearly budgets are stretched - and... More

This was on our list of must see's and was well worth the 5 euros for us both. Lots of plants to see with some really old trees and a great spot to rest in the shade by the pond. Builders doing up the walls and renovating the well and wall fountain I would imagine.

Unfortunately this garden was very disappointing. My wife and I were excited to explore a garden after not being able to have access to Florence's private gardens. This one was run down and not well maintained. Many empty flower beds and weeds with broken water fountains in the back pond. Would not recommend this to anyone, much attention must go... More

as keen gardeners we were excited to see this garden with so much history and science involved - but while interesting and cheap to enter, it is very run down and unkempt in most places - needs TLC - but easy to see so have a peep inside if you are interested in medicinal plants

The entrance price of 2.5 euros is well worth it. The gardens and greenhouses are well- maintained and plants and trees are clearly labelled, and the collection has been assembled over many years. There isn't a great deal of shade so if the weather is hot I'd advise going late afternoon.
