“Tourist trap”

Orto Botanico di Lucca
Ranked #21 of 123 things to do in Lucca
Attraction details
Reviewed 1 July 2018 via mobile

Paid 4 euros per person for seeing a horribly maintained garden. Greenhouses are used for storage. Bathroom “facilities” are a joke. Do not visit this place. Instead enjoy the fantastic views from the wall.

We also visited the Orto Botanico in Pisa and the Boboli in Florence and this one is the best by far - plenty to see, not dried up, and good labels on the specimen trees

The gardens are lovely, peaceful and tranquil setting. We took a picnic which we enjoyed while enjoying the surroundings. 3 Euro entry. Maybe a little restaurant or refreshment area would be an added advantage. Lovely would certainly recommend.

total waste of money. Overgrown and completely neglected. few herbs sprouting in pots but most everything else derelict. Even the grass at the front entrance hasn't beem mown in many many weeks. Spent your money and time elsewhere.

At least in mid October. A little color on the leaves, but mostly evergreens, dead fruits and vegetables and things past their prime.
