Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We spent a few hours in this beautiful botanical garden. It was good sunny weather in February and we walked around the garden. There was almost without visitors, so it was a quiet, relaxing time for us. We saw lots of cacti, palm trees and other tropical plants. We enjoyed it.

Very affordable way to spend a couple of hours. Lots of interesting plants ; many sign posted in both Italian and English. Could use a bit of maintenance but worth a visit.

I was a bit wary as Cagliari looked quite a busy place but it was actually very quiet on a Saturday afternoon and we drove through and parked just outside the botanic gardens with no issues. And my parking is apparently decent compared to that of the average Italian driver!

The botanic gardens were founded just over 200 years ago and were really rather good. It was quite a large space on a hillside and there were several water features and loads of plants, surprisingly! There were some fabulous cactii and grasses and loads of things I couldn't identify but were awesomely beautiful. We saw more basking lizards and terrapins in a pool as well. Everything was well labelled and there were loads of shaded areas with benches and little book shelves for people to lend or borrow books to read while enjoying the serenity of the gardens, a fantastically simple idea.

We found this place on walk back down hill from the amphitheatre and was well worth a visit, few euros to enter and its a very peaceful place for a walk and cool off in shade.

Lots of cacti for you to see and a 'cave' at the other end, was nice to relax here after walk up the hills.

the gardens are filled with so many interesting plants and trees. I suggest wandering from one thing to the whatever next takes your fancy rather than trying to follow a suggested route. But make sure not to miss out on the roman caves- one in particular has a really large vault and the most incredible echo inside!

Beautiful place in a great part of town. Good for a nice walk and enjoying the shade. Small but well worth the time to visit

This is a very nice botanical garden, also with some Roman ruins, but watch out for the hot summer temperatures: better visit it in spring, fall and (the local) "winter".

Orto botanico is a lovely place to wile away a few hours in the shade from the sun.. Felt a little unloved and maybe needs a bit of tlc.
