This botanical garden is close to the city center, and provides a pleasant walk though a highly diverse set of plants from around the world. The environmental science building was not particularly special, but a nice bonus.

Great to see if you are interested in plants and history. Not a "pretty" garden but rather a scientific garden. Wifi for the bored regazzi. A pleasant walk among well labeled plants and trees.

This is the most ancient botanic garden in Europe. It was in disrepair until it was restored two years ago. Beautiful and clearly labelled plants. The modern tropical areas are well integrated. Will visit again
