Great collection of plants, especially the greenhouse with the fantastic succulent collection. But follow the identifiers on the brochure to see everything, including the Pampanini Fountain in the back and the surprising remnants of Roman ruins. Well worth a visit!

Incredible variety of plants which are uniformly well labeled.

Impressive amount of buildings around the garden perimeter supporting the work....More

Although we were glad we did this it no Kew Gardens and were a little disappointed. Maybe it depends on what time of the year you visit.

Well laid out and with information to guide you on your walk, this was a lovely spot for anyone with an interest in nature. Next door to the Roman Amphitheatre, the botanic gardens also boasts a Punic cave and Roman cisterns.
