The gardens are open only on Saturdays and Sundays, and not every weekend, so check opening times before you travel. The guide said she liked the gardens best in spring (as early as March) - they were lush, green and pleasant enough in high summer,...More

Beautiful gardens. I had read about the beauty of these gardens but couldn't believe they were so nice until I actually visited them. Worth visiting but check opening times because they are not so frequent.
