When we went to Pisa to see the Leaning Tower we also wandered through town and popped into this University Garden. Said to be the first botanical garden attached to a ‘University’ and formed in 1544 although not on this current site.
It was worth visiting but did seem a little run down. The specimen beds seen in the photo below didn’t have many specimens in them and there were overgrown neglected paths and areas.
But like I say worth the visit anyway.
And we came across this very interesting screen…..
Looked like it was protecting this pine tree from the sun!
And there was a small area with annuals and a sweet wildlife ‘hotel’.
Loved that brick gateway.
Not the best we have seen but another added to my total!
