After exploring the meticulous, man-made structures in Miracoli Square, how about a contrast? If you’d like to see great big green trees with hanging vines framed by fountains of viridian, then walk on to the Orto Botanico di Pisa. This 16th century styled botanical garden would be the perfect place to chill out after all that walking. While you relax, you can take in the giant magnolias and the cane groves, amongst a bevy of other beautiful plants. If you’re in Pisa during summer, this is a good place to find shade as well as peace of mind.

The OrtoBotanico di Pisa was set up in 1544 by the University of Pisa Medici. Entrusted to Luca Ghini, after whom the street is named, the garden is the first botanical garden to be established under a university in Europe. The garden was moved twice, from its original riverside location and then from a river near Santa Manta, to its current location in Luca Ghini. The garden has had many intriguing features during its time, such as a library, a collection of natural objects and vivid portraits of its past directors. Over time, it has divided into sections containing an arboretum, an herb garden, a historical, shell encrusted botanical school, greenhouses and various other buildings.

Luckily, the garden is a short walk away from the Piazza deiMiracoli so it makes an ideal place to rest your feet. The old houses and lush vegetation are typical of Pisa, and this is reflected in the garden, with a building dating back to 1595. You can sit on a park bench and admire the view or roam around the different collections of cactus and bamboo forests or just take a quick walk through it just to settle your thoughts. A bonus is that, unlike most attractions in Pisa, there won’t be swarms of people in the gardens, which guarantees serenity. You can replace the noise of honking cars with the trilling of birds and the soft gushing sounds of the fountain at center.

You can even take a guided tour around the gardens, if you call the university in advance. After spending an hour there, you can buy a souvenir from the gift shop. The gift shop only sells University of Pisa merchandise, since they’re the keeper of the gardens. Botanists and avid gardeners will have a ton of fun trying to identify the different trees and shrubs and casual nature lovers will feel right at home.

  • You can get some nice views of the Leaning Tower of Pisa from the gardens as it isn't that far away.
  • Try to visit during spring, when the garden will be in full bloom.
  • This isn’t a commercial money making set-up, it's a work in constant progress as part of the university so it’s a little messy.

  • Reduced ticket : € 1.50 (children between 6 and 12 years old and college students)
  • Family ticket Euro : 6.00, Groups (admission and guided tour to be booked in advance)
  • Free for children under 6 years and adults over 65 years.

  • Bus numbers 21 and 4
  • The train station is also nearby

  • Trattoria La Buca (Italian, Seafood/Moderate)
  • Trattoria da Stelio (Seafood, Italian/Moderate)
  • Ristorante Antonietta (Seafood, Italian, Vegetarian/Moderate)

  • Really great botanical garden and interesting museum (especially for someone who studied botany)! It's very close to the city center and yet very quiet. The building itself is extraordinary, made out of shells. If you're a student the entry is very inexpensive, 4 euros!

  • Quiet place to relax after visiting the hectic area around the tower. The hothouses contain some interesting plants you see normally only in books. To the non-expert like me the garden was not so exiting though.

  • This garden is good for those who like plants rather than parks. (The northern half is also somewhat park-like.) This garden is the oldest research botanical garden in the world (!) and it also has some rare imported species, such as a medium size California coastal redwood tree. Entrance was 8 Euro for a family in 2018. Some plants seemed in desperate need of water, though. Overall, we liked it!

  • A nice rest from a hot day in Pisa. The botanic garden is very varied and presents some really cool plants. The museum is short and easy to watch. Even though is not a must in Pisa, for its price it's a great option during a hot day.

  • For students of University of Pisa it's free which is good for them to rest of study. For other students it is 2€. Very nice walk in the middle of the city.
