It must be hard to look after a Botanical Garden in Rome, especially in August where the temperatures are around 35-45 C. And it really doesn't work here. Most of the garden are extremely dry and there is not much to see. Waste of money.

€32 for a visit to the garden, poorly maintained, dying plants, no facilities. Don't bother going there are plenty of better things to do with your money. Also many more impressive parks and gardens in Rome. Asked for a refund, got shouted at by ticket...More

Whilst there are areas that are good ~ cactus & Japanese Acer area ~ found overall to be disappointing.... After the gardens in Florence we visited we had an expectation.. It is a quiet location in a busy city but the overall experience was lacking.

Although this is just on the edge of Trastevere it is quite easy to forget you are actually in a city once you get inside the gates. The ticket office provides a leaflet which gives you a map of the gardens and suggested routes. There...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
