...but it is still a nice place to visit and introduce children to the bounty of the planet and the joys that can be reaped from cultivation. Medicinal plants have been grown here for over 200 years. Two of the oldest Gingko Trees in Europe, a male and female to keep each other company. Come and visit or study under the wisteria in full bloom...when it is in full bloom.

We had been walking around Milan all morning in a heatwave. We were brave and walked through the cool university building and out to this little gem. Small but perfectly-formed little garden, with fountain and separate areas containing plants from various areas of the world. Lots of labels telling you what the plants were. Plenty of benches on which to sit and admire the view, including the old wall of the building. Cafe and toilets. And what’s more, it’s free!

I usually stop in to the Brera to look at paintings each visit to Milan. It was closed, but I discovered their Botanical Gardens. You walk down hallways of the art school and into this civilized place. Since the middle ages this has been a place of study. Just the right amount of fuss and wildness. People walking around enjoying springtime leafing and budding.

Save a visit to this garden for when you're feeling overwhelmed by the pace of Milan. While it is not a very lush garden, it is an exceedingly tranquil place to simply relax; it's clear that a lot of care has gone into its planning and upkeep. Garden-lovers will be happy, but it's not a tourist attraction in the sense of museums or cathedrals -- anyone visiting and expecting entertainment will of course be disappointed. And of course it's free, so no one has a right to complain about a lack of engaging attractions or interpretive signs, here. It is hard to find the entrance, but on the bright side, that keeps it from being busy.
