  • We visited the botanical garden on the penultimate day of the trip as we had a lot of free time and we had visited in the past days everything we had in its predecessor. Yes they are beautiful and pleasant but not something special measured on the fingers of the hands the particular plants. Entrance 8 Euro per person. I wouldn't recommend it for relaxation.. If you want green visit Villa Borghese

  • Rome's botanical garden is less well known than others, such as other botanicalgardens. Palermo or Padua, but it's wonderful. A green lung to pierce under the Janiculum. Many varieties of plants with suggestive corners : the area of palm trees, bamboo, Japanese garden, medicinal herbs, happy etc. A lovely place at La Sapienza University in Rome. It's a must-see. A paradise in the centre of Rome

  • Every year since we learned about the unfolding of the market exhibition "The Snow Conservation", my partner and I participate (from visitors and customers) with great enthusiasm! This time the contentment has skyrocketed as it took place in the Botanical Garden of Rome, a place that I adore to madness and where, if possible, I would live!!! We spent a beautiful and pleasant half-day on a Saturday in mid-September, complete with home made sandwich for lunch, made by my partner and enjoyed on a bench in the shade of the tall trees. Wandering around the Botanical Garden is an experience that I recommend to everyone, especially those who have children, it is necessary to teach him from an early age the importance of respect and care that must be had towards the green, Nature represents life and oxygen for our planet and we just have to be grateful to him for all the splendor of plants, fruits, vegetables and beautiful places he gives us. It is wonderful to see and admire plant specimens, flowers, succulents, carnivores, the workshop to which an entire outdoor section is dedicated and the various greenhouses each with different species. The place in its entirety we found really improved compared to our last visit (also accompanied by my review), changes were made that made it look more complete, welcoming, interesting and attractive. The aforementioned market exhibition was a success in fact we arrived late in the morning and there were already many people who in the afternoon when we left, increased and continued to flow copiously. The total cost between visit and exhibition was 10 euros, or 4 euros for the visit to the Botanical Garden and 6 euros for The Snow Preserve, honest price I would say. The Japanese Garden is very nice and noteworthy, and it is reached by a beautiful ascent, complete with brook, fish and very tender ducks, with even a gazebo and from this very high point you can admire the Roman panorama all around. What about it? The Botanical Garden is a call that we can't resist and we can't help but go there at least once a year! It is easily reached then by means of transport so there is no excuse to postpone your visit further!

  • Absolutely the most beautiful Park I have ever been to. The Plants are so beautiful and well cared for. There's tropical birds flying through the trees( I guess Parrots of some kind). The park is perfect for Tourist interested in Biology but it is also perfect for relaxing/ learning or reading a book. The view from the top of the Hill is also breathtaking. Theres also a statue of a guy that looks awesome. It's my favorite park I have ever been to. I would recommend this park to anyone who's looking for a spot to relax and let the mind wonder. Or to anyone who likes to learn about plant life typically for Roman climate.
  • It’s a lovely spot. They could be superb botanical gardens but they’re not well kept and maintained. Still, they’re worth a wander as Therese some nice things and if only to escape the hectic built environment for a while. The trees, shrubs and infrastructure are all struggling a bit here. Many are not properly kept or marked. Clearly they’re short of funds here as is the city itself which is also batting a bit with broken roads, paving and other infrastructure issues. It’s a great city. Let’s hope they direct some more funds to help improve these vital public facilities.
  • Tranquil park which is worth a look around. Tropical birds flying overhead was the highlight. Note there is a gate at the top which gives access to the hill above but was locked when we were there and looked like it had been for some time. Google maps doesn't know it is locked!
  • It's OK... Don't be fooled by the first part near the entrance. Should be maintained better. Nice view from the top of the garden from the Japanese section.
  • It has good and some better paths, but it is always enjoyable. Especially if you are interested in palmtrees, since their collection is vast and a wander beneath them is breathtaking. You should also take a look at the Japanese garden, it is beautiful with koi and pavilion! And a panorama of Rome.
