  • I visited during my last step in Salerno and found it really beautiful. The garden is composed of 5 different terraces, all scenic spots and treated with different botanical species, I found a magical place especially for the location and atmosphere. Could be held better but worth seeing it.

  • It is a spectacular place to visit, even just for the view. The herbs and plants in this place are telling you the story of Salerno and its world wide known "Scuola Medica". The entrance should be free, it should be improved the Tea room/Cafe/Shop, in order to increase the takings.
  • Known as the first Botanical University for medicine - this little garden is very beautiful and must-see for botanists and gardeners. It's small, not expensive and only takes 20-30 minutes to visit. Enjoy some herbal teas in the tea room.
  • Worth discovering this beautiful terraced garden within the old town of Salerno
  • you can’t leave salerno without visiting minerva’s garden. it’s an old amazing botanic garden on the top of the city. there are a lot of plants and vegetable, it’s cheap and not packed.
  • Nice view of Salerno. Costs 3 euro for entrance fee. Cafe is nice there but on the pricey side.
