A pleasant stroll through nice gardens, well labelled plants, a good succulent collection and a pond legend.

We really enjoyed our walk around the botanic gardens. A couple of gardeners were working there, tidying the gardens. The border of rhododendrons must be beautiful in late spring. Even so, it is a well tended garden and the sculpture exhibition worked in well. The...More

Did the gardens as part of the combined ticket with the two towers so felt like we were getting a good deal on entrance fee. Gardens are small but I loved the large collection of orchids (I haven't see so many since I visited Hawaii)...More

Lucca's walls give great access all around the city. Nothing is ever far off and this charming small garden is no exception. Created when every Renaissance city had such a garden this retains charm and beauty with plants labelled for those wishing to know identities.

Very interesting to see, it's not big but very nice to walk in. The art collection was very well integrated and the flowers were lovely! Funny pond with a nice story ;)

More a botanical garden than a flower garden it is still a lovely way to spend an hour away from shops and tourists.

Lovely garden to visit. Extremely peaceful. Interesting plants and shady places to sit and contemplate.

A bit disappointing as nothing of great interest. You pass on your way to the wall which runs around the town so worth a visit but 3 euros is a bit costly for what there is. Somewhere for a drink would have been good.
