A nice mix of historical elements (e.g. the end of the Roman viaducts, the Roman Cistern/cave) plants and supporting elements like the nursery and greenhouses. Impressive amount of buildings around the garden perimeter supporting the work....More

Well laid out and with information to guide you on your walk, this was a lovely spot for anyone with an interest in nature. Next door to the Roman Amphitheatre, the botanic gardens also boasts a Punic cave and Roman cisterns.
