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

Loved this place. It has some wonderful plants and plantings. Many surprises. It's very large with different areas, green houses, fountains, etc. What I liked best if that its pretty unkempt and very free. You could walk anywhere off the paths. Sit anywhere. This was...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

I was here in late May and thoroughly enjoyed my visit! The gardens were much larger than I expected and so peaceful and relaxing. My favorite section was the Japanese garden with its lovely pond and stream. When I stepped onto the bridge over the...More

Very nice to get shade and quiet. However, this is not a well maintained botanic garden. €8 per person is prob too expensive, but not much choice in Rome. We are spoilt in UK where most public parks are better than this.

It is a very well thought out and well maintained (whatever others might say) botanic garden, beautifully landscaped on a hill slope. It's not huge but when inside it seems larger than it actually is because it contains many different "sections" crammed with different trees...More

In England we are spoiled for beautiful parks and gardens, so my expectations were low; however, I enjoyed a couple of hours in this peaceful uncrowded oasis. Gravel paths gently wind up the side of Gianicolo hill, giving lovely (if distant) views of the city....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
