Overview
More
Founded in 1842, the Botanical Garden is located on the hill of Chiadino, a green island inside the city. The Garden is enriched with a collection of important and typical plants, in particular with the main “plants of man” (with an economic, medicinal or industrial use) and with a path of ornamental plants from all over the world (with the fragrant collections of hellebore, sage, iris, hydrangea, rose, peony). Furthermore, it is characterized by a geopaleontological route, to recognize rocks and fossils of the Trieste territories and a reconstruction of the local Dinosaur "Antonio" (original fossil exhibited at Museo Civico di Storia Naturale).

This garden is small, shady and free. However it's up a very steep hill. It's probably at its best in the spring. Worth a look if you are in the vicinity but not worth a long detour.

We went because we know a bit about plants, and it has a link with the University so we thought it would be, as it says, a botanic garden, i.e. things set out in groups of similar genus and lots of labels. Far from it....More

Small but very interesting. Hundreds of varieties of flowers, trees and various plants. Especially plants "used" by man (cooking, herbal medicine, perfumes, colors, poisons). Even a small geological trail with the reconstruction of the famous Dinosaur "Antonio" of the Museo Civico di Storia Naturale. A...More
