For €5 each it really wasn't worth it. Very dry, a bit dirty, not enough signs, just not really up to much. I've been to free botanic gardens before and they were fantastic, this was not.

We were amazed by the ancient trees with their twisted shapes. Like something out of a fantasy novel. Beautiful pond with turtles sliding.

Wonderful get-away from the Palermo.

We were lucky enough to see a wedding party doing photos.

This is not a great example of a botanical garden - dry, unkept, really ugly in parts. The best thing here were the turtles. Not worth paying to get in.

I bought my lunch from the supermarket one day and ate it here. Many newly married couples come here to take photos and videos, and I was asked by one photographer if I could remain on my bench while the bridge and groom sat next to me... While I'll never be sure, I'm pretty sure I 'photobombed' someone's wedding photos. It's honestly a beautiful place.

We had a full day to ourselves before our tour began in Sicily so we went to Orto Botanico. It turned out to be a lovely day. The flowers were so beautiful... We loved walking through the gardens and grounds. The lily pond and statues were really beautiful. It was a relaxing way to get over our jet lag and enjoy some beautiful surroundings.
