This small botanic garden had some exotic plants, but the highlight was probably the live turtles who were basking and lazily swimming around in a pool

When you are stunned by the medieval town of Ferrara with all the fabulous buildings, cobble stoned streets, squares with that typical Italian unhurried atmosphere, bars, cafes and restaurants, a less then 10 minutes walk from Castello d'Este to the north brings you to the Botanical Garden of the Ferrara University. Admission is free and in this area peace and quiet reigns. It something completely different, but this "Orto Botanico" is someting completely different from the bustling streets and squares of Ferrara. Worth a visit. See the pictures attached to this review.

Not a large garden and positioned alongside a main road. We did visit in September so not a lot of flowering plants going on. At least it was free.

This is a small garden with the most beautiful lotuses I've ever seen! It's the ideal place to have a cool rest after a visit to the Palazzo dei Diamanti!

A lovely little garden, carefully laid out with walkways leading to greenhouses containing interesting species such as carnivorous plants. The pond contains terrapins that laze around in the sunshine before splashing into the water. Only when we were leaving did we see the sign stating the opening hours (weekdays, before 1:00 pm). We felt embarrassed that we had been wandering around an hour after the time that it was closed to the public, but the few students who were sitting around in the grounds did not seem to mind (though that’s no excuse, of course). The garden is opposite the Palazzo Dei Diamanti, on the other side of the road, so it’s worth making a combined visit; a five minutes walk from Castello Estense.

Small but nice, there is a greenhouse with exotic plants & an outdoors part, which is divided in sections: protected plants useful plants etc.
The entrance is free, the problem is that most of the time it's closed.
The opening hours are: Mon.- Fri. 09:00- 13:00
Sat., Sun. & holidays closed.
So if you feel that you must see it, plan your trip in accordance with the above hours.

This very central spot in Ferrara is very inviting for a short stop and break on a day trip trough Ferrara. Smaller than most other botanical gardens that I visited, but a good experience as well.

Small, shady and free. A welcome break from too much culture, noise etc. Enjoyed the challenge of translating from Italian to English to identify some of the plants. The gardens/plants did look a little sparse.
