  • Even if it's free to enter, I think Bologna has much better to offer than this botanical garden. Being winter time we were expecting anything special already but it still managed to disappoint us. The...  more »
  • We had considerable expectations even though we were aware that the month of January is not the best for plants and fiori....ma was a half hour thrown to the wind as the maintenance of the "Park" seemed to be missing (pond putrid, weeds everywhere, dead bodies of plants abundant in themselves). Then in my opinion it is more that a botanical garden. Good but not great!

  • Already at the entrance of the Botanical Garden (the visit is free) we noticed a can of autan is a sign indicating use it before entering and leaving a contribution, then inside after a few minutes of tour (the garden is truly filled with plants and with 2 greenhouses) we were prey to hungry mosquitoes that despite the autan forced us to expedite your visit losing the opportunity to enjoy a peaceful stroll in the garden. We visited in August, so I advise you to go with long pants and long sleeved shirts in addition to taking a bath in autan before you get close to visit.

  • A really sad neglected place. Entrance is free so you won't get angry for wasting a couple of euro's, but maybe you should. The place sorely needs investment. There is a couple of nice old trees, but apart from that and the greenhouses that are off limits there's only misery.
  • It's good but not that much big
  • Beautiful gardens. Out the back is like a wild paradise. So quiet and peaceful and makes a nice break from the bustle outside. Great place for kids to run around, climb hills, hide in trees. Loved it!
  • If you come to Bologna, definitely worth a visit local botanical garden of the University of Bologna. This is one of the oldest botanical gardens in Italy. It includes really wonderful exhibits and very cared greenhouses, where for more hot temperatures (particularly welcome during the winter months) are countless succulents and other heat-loving plants. Free entry.
  • Great "hidden" place. Very nice & relaxing.
