The gardens included a section housing medicinal plants as well as a greenhouse housing many varieties of cactus. Every gardener who visits Pisa should also visit here.

For a site which has so much importance, and is the pride of Pisa, it needs a lot of work doing on it. Dandelions and weeds predominate, and despite seeing quite a few gardeners parts of the gardens are very neglected. It is a peaceful...More

A lovely cacti house, formally set out gardens and an interesting natural history display in the house. Not a lot to see I April but I imagine would be stunning in the summer months.

We followed the tourist map from our hotel and the initial impression of this building was a poor one . However later on the route we found the lovely frontage on a different street which was worthy of a longer stop

This old garden is a nice escape from the crowds. Large trees provide much needed shade in summer. Clearly less than its grand splendor of yore, but still nice "bones" to treasure. It is walled and can be maddening to find - keeping walking around...More

We had a great walk around even though the gardens need a huge amount of tlc. The beds showcasing the medicinal plants were neglected but there are still some unusual tree and shrubs specimens. It was free for senior citizens
