    The botanical gardens, managed by the University, it is not always open, which is a shame because inside it contains some treasures including a beautiful rose garden and a tropical greenhouse, apart from some medicinal plants and to magnificent orchids. It is worth to follow the events calendar to see the (few) Sundays of operation, such as the spring festivals, and take us maybe children who are usually dedicated activities to introduce them to rich plant life. Admission is free. The garden is unfortunately not very often in conditions of total neglect, which is a shame because I consider it a huge asset for our city and this is demonstrated by the number of people who also comes from the province when you visit it. Would maybe keep a little better side areas Via Scopoli where there are often no water fountains.

    In recent years the gardens are increasingly neglected and that's a shame. The gravel paths are overgrown with weeds, numerous fountains are empty vessels without water .... I'm really sorry because I'm particularly fond of this place and I see his rose garden every day bringing my children to school ...

    Botanical Garden owned by the University of Pavia in 1773 by botanists Brusati and Borsieri. The architect Piermarini built greenhouses (in wood then replaced by those of iron and glass). Thanks to Scopoli l'orto became the center of advanced study and experimentation in Europe. To visit on opening weekend; free entry, you could keep with more care.

  • Its free entry. If you are boaring explore this place ;)
  • Not big or particulary intresting but a nice place to have a walk in.
  • Green Island in the city with a number of deciduous and coniferous trees, tropical greenhouses. Possibility of guided tours. Ancient and historical part of the University of Pavia.

  • Beautiful House of epoch and in front of a nice garden of rare roses and azaleas ... Nice little enclosure inside but really disappointing the Park and greenhouses. Very little manicured plant, erba everywhere even where you should find the plants reported by specific tags, the greenhouse where they are kept the Succulents like visually a sense of disarray because the plants are not catalogued or by region and nor by type, good collection of antique and/or particular botanical books ...
