This tiny botanical garden is a bit of hidden gem. It's not immediately accessible from the road; you have to go behind the Palazzo Brera. Once there, you'll find a secluded little green space created in 1774 by Abbot Fulgenzio Vitman. It's a cute corner of trimmed flowerbeds, oval ponds, a large Diospyros lotus and one of the oldest Ginkgo biloba trees in Europe. There is not much else to see here. It's romantic across the seasons.

Nice place. Maintained & with lots of explanations about herbs. You can have a refreshment nearby and have a rest. Everyone who likes nature will not regret visiting it. 👍☺️
Loved it! Very peaceful and calming. We went in August so almost all the flowers were gone but I'd say spring is beautiful there.
Probably one of the most disappointing botanical gardens I have visited so far. Besides being away from traffic it has no real advantage. I have seen similar private gardens inside some of the building complex around here. The access is also terrible. It is like they don't want you to visit it. From the plazza, where people have engraved signs that scream at you that this is not the botanical garden entrance, to private apartment buildings where the guards are prepared with a map and speech about how to get to the entrance, to the palace where a small plate says this is not the entrance either. Finally, after circling around like a madman, you find the puny garden at the end of a private street. No signs there either. Unless you are in love and obsessed by botanical gardens, like we are, I wouldn't bother making the trip here.
It's a good garden with fresh air and a really comfortable atmosphere. A lot of plans and some new ones for me. It is really hard to find the entry to it though.
A hidden gem! This is small, but very well maintained with a great variety, all of it labeled. Go here if you can!
