  • Those who ask for 'improvements' are misguided, I think - this is not supposed to be a manicured garden but a botanical resource laid out for Romans to enjoy. I loved the way the plants and trees are allowed to reflect the seasons, produce their own mulch, fall into their natural form and sit surrounded by wildflowers and grasses - best modern practice, with very little watering. The positioning of the trees is immensely skillful, the hard landscaping is beautifully integrated, and the labelling discreet and informative. The Simples Garden is a delight. I imagine that it's at its 'best' in April and May - this is the Mediterranean, after all - but I loved it in high summer, too.
  • What a wonderful botanical garden this was! It climbs up the hill, with lots of lovely terraces, little waterfalls and benches to sit to take in the amazing view of Rome on the opposite side of the Tiber. There's a lot to see in Trastevere, but don't miss out on this. Beware that there is an entrance fee, though. But it's well worth it. One of the highlights of our stay in Rome.
  • The staff here kindly organised a tour for us (min 10 people, €12p.p. for groups of less than 20 and €6 a head for larger groups) which lasted 1.5hrs and was extremely interesting. Giulia, our guide, was a student from the university that manages the gardens, and she gave us just the right amount of information. The only negative point was that it was hard for everyone to hear so headsets would have been good. We didn't cover everything and I'll definitely go back to see the parts we missed.
  • Lovely, relaxing garden with beautiful plants and squawking parrots. I went in February and imagine it's better in the spring. We had hoped to climb up to the top of Giancolo Hill through the park but the upper gate was closed, so if that's your plan, ask at the ticket desk in advance!
  • It's suitable for a casual walk. Nice view of Rome
