Overview
More
Based on the East side of the Hotel Botanico San Lazzaro, the exclusive exotic garden "Beniamino Cimini" is split in levels, making the most of the typical terraces on the Amalfi Coast commonly engaged by scented lemon groves. With further 3500 square metres extension, the garden offers its visitors the delights of a botanic oasis, formed by cactaceae and succulente, with approximately 2000 different plants and a rare collection of cristate that stands out among them. A green corner with an exotic touch, therefore, set on a natural scenery of sublimed beauty dedicated to Beniamino Cimini who committed his life to the intensive farming and growing of this collection of exemplary nature. A passion materialized in a botanic garden near the sea, the ideal place for pleasant walks and relaxing ways to spend your time, sipping a cocktail or a glass of wine, flipping through the pages of a magazine or a good book.

Well worth the five euros, - including free drink at the bar. Beautiful views and good planting, but do try not to touch any of the plant or you may have spines to remove!

It was quiet hard to find the elevator, but very nice Italian showed us how to get there. It's good to go there in the evening, because earlier it's a little bit hot. Nice place, worth of watching.More
