In between the thunder showers our knowledgeable guide showed us the extensive garden areas and glasshouses, telling us about the history and botanical highlights of the gardens. In early May the trees were in light leaf and rhododendrons were coming into flower. Our guide took...More

What a wonderful surprise!! The gardens are kept very clean and it is well organized. There is so much to see so make sure you give yourself enough time to browse throughout the entire garden! We would definitely recommend it and go back again!

Amazing bamboo forest was magical, the well maintained medicinal garden was lovely, and the Japanese garden hidden and peaceful. Also a huge rose garden alive in flowers in May. We spent 3 hours visiting this hillside and its gardens and greenhouses. Loved it! Discounted price...More

This is a delightful, small and peaceful garden behind the Palazzo Corsini in Trastevere. The garden stretches up the side of the Janiculum Hill and is divided by plantings ie pine, bamboo, palms and a rose garden which will be gorgeous in about six weeks...More

If you are interested in botanical gardens and visited some...don't try this one. Way to expensive for a badly maintained garden. The best experience were the views on the city and the friendly cat enjoying the sun.

After visiting Villa Farnesina across the street, we entered these gardens to spend some quiet time away from the crowds and we were not disappointed. This was a peaceful place with hundreds of species. Unfortunately, flowers were rare because of the time of year but...More

It must be hard to look after a Botanical Garden in Rome, especially in August where the temperatures are around 35-45 C. And it really doesn't work here. Most of the garden are extremely dry and there is not much to see. Waste of money.

The entrance fee could seem too much (8 euros) but the visit is worth every cents. The garden is beautiful, fresh and peaceful, ideal to make a couple of hours stop while visiting Rome. You can see more than 60 bamboos species and do not...More

Trastevere
Trastevere ("beyond the Tiber") is like a faded
postcard, a little worn around the edges but still
charming. With its wide-open piazzas, meandering
streets, weathered Renaissance buildings, and
overgrown personality, it's become an irresistible
mecca for visitors. Trastevere is an enclave of
entertainment - a rotating set of street performers
entertains almost every night, and unforgettable
