If you want to rest after you visited the university then the botanical gardens are perfect. The quiet benches in the shade between all the trees and flowers are the perfect spot to have a little rest.

The perfect place to escape from the summer heat. Shady, well layed out, with easy walking paths. Lots of interesting plants.

There were a few very old and very large trees here, and a rather varied group of plantings, and vey nice landscape architecture. It was quite pleasant outdoors walking around even at midday.
