Visited here in September 2018, while paying €8.00 each for tickets I overheard a couple complaining about the "fountain". While walking around the gardens we found the remains of what were the previously respected series of interconnected fountains,called "Fountains of the eleven Spouts" In the...More

These must be the worst gardens in Italy if not Europe. An entry of 8 Euro is daylight robbery. In the previous month we have been to the gardens of Athens ,Catania, Taormina all of which were free and better kept and maintained than this...More

If I have a criticism it is that it isn’t making enough of its strengths. And they are many. The garden is an important part of a world wide program for protecting species I would love to know more. The French greenhouse is magnificent but...More

The park is one of our favourite places in Rome, a gem hidden in the Trastevere neighbourhood. Beautiful landscapes and arrangements. Really don't miss it. We visited in summer so unfortunately there were less flowers and less water in the fountains, but the various environments...More

To think we were charged to visit these gardens made our disappointment even greater as you’d expect the revenue to be used to maintain the gardens. The grass (weeds more like) was harsh and unkempt. The flower beds were messy and overall it was awful....More

So close to major attractions like the Pantheon and Campo de'Fiori but it feels like a world apart. Great place to spend a couple of hours to take a break from the jostling tourist crowds and just relax. Price is €8 adults. Both the herb...More

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

The map is pretty self explanatory. But, perhaps if you want more detailed, historical information via a guide, I would call to inquire. Enjoy!
