  • If you have ideas that this garden might be similar to the gardens in the villas of Ravello, this is not the case. It is a very small garden and made famous by its plants which have medicinal qualitie...  read more »
  • It is said that the most unexpected things are the most beautiful. Well, my visit to the Minerva garden is a confirmation. Having a cutout of an hour or so to spend in Salerno where I was in transit, having nothing better to do I wanted to trust the Trip suggestions in the maze of Ipanema and I climbed all the narrow streets of the old town of Salerno to this place which I immediately found it delicious. The Botanical Garden is spread on terraces with a myriad of medicinal plants-many of them-and it's especially well cared for. While walking along the small paths of terraces, you can enjoy the beauty and you become intoxicated by the scent of medicinal plants, uncovering some plants that you know just the flowers. A place rich in history if you think of the great legacy of the medical school of Salerno, place that has at its core a mini herb shop that also serves herbal tea you can drink on the spot, sitting on tables in the first terracing, perhaps with a good book. A wonderful surprise which I recommend to everyone!

  • Salerno is located at the bottom of the medieval ortobotanico steeped in history, divided into five terraces, from the top you can enjoy a beautiful panorama. Has such a wealth of water, sewers, ponds and fountains. The climate, exposure were allowed to cultivate different botanical species from which to extract the active ingredients for medicines, so that this is connected with the school of medicine. There is also a bar and a terrace with tables where you can enjoy tea and biscuits, as well as being able to do that too.

  • afraid of heights but worth the visit so peaceful and serene😊
  • The garden has so much potential because of its strategic location from which you can admire a beautiful view of the city. Could be kept better in the management of the attractions and the treatment of plants. Ideal to spend some time away from the hectic city life.

  • The "magic" of Salerno. In addition to the historical value, linked to the school of medicine, offers the opportunity to enjoy a fantastic view of the historic center, immersed in greenery and with the noise of running water in irrigation canals. You can enjoy some great herbal tea, chatting with friends, reading a book ... or just lounging and enjoying the beauty of this place.
