  • A garden that is easy to access, with information, pools and flower water. Visible layers. A museum visit so special occasions (Orchid titan) otherwise little of interest. €2

  • Very nice Park with signs, explanations on maintenance of the trees, a small stream, water, various gardens, a rose garden (certainly more very flowered in November but it looks normal!) Many benches, much to spend some quality time.

  • the Botanical Garden of Bordeaux is a bit far from the city centre, more you can get the train and stop very close and walking distance you reach the botanical gardens. Admission is free and separate some 2 hours to enjoy the beauty of the place.
