Please note this isn't open at weekends! We hiked all the way to the gardens in the midday sun (silly, I know), getting a bit lost enroute, only to discover it is only open on week days...

It was difficult to get there because Orto Botanico is closed on Saturdays and Sundays. and is open only until 6pm on weekdays. Keep in mind that the entrance is near Villa Tigelius and not the Amphiteatre.

I visited the garden in January. It was a nice discover. A huge selection of green things, panels reasonably well organized. Overall the place communicated a good care and organization. I think the place will give its best of Spring/Autumn

Like other Italian and foreign tourists standing puzzled at the closed gates on a Sat morning, we were disappointed to find the gardens were not open at the time and day advertised on the sign at the gate!

Botanical garden was a good place to rest after a long walk in hot ad sunny Cagliari. So we had fun watching all different kind of palms and other trees in there. Good place for family visit.

We had visited this Botanical garden some 3 years ago in February and were interested to see how it looked in Spring. Maybe its the economy but it was so disappointing with dried ot pots dying plants and unattended gardens, definitely not recommended
