If you are interested in botanical gardens and visited some...don't try this one. Way to expensive for a badly maintained garden. The best experience were the views on the city and the friendly cat enjoying the sun.

After visiting Villa Farnesina across the street, we entered these gardens to spend some quiet time away from the crowds and we were not disappointed. This was a peaceful place with hundreds of species. Unfortunately, flowers were rare because of the time of year but...More

Having visited Rome on several occasions this time we thought we would give a miss to the usual attractions and so we decided to try Trastevere and its attractions among which the Orto Botanico. Being garden lovers and having the fortune to visit so many...More

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.

The entrance fee could seem too much (8 euros) but the visit is worth every cents. The garden is beautiful, fresh and peaceful, ideal to make a couple of hours stop while visiting Rome. You can see more than 60 bamboos species and do not...More

€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.

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
