Such a pretty name.
I was browsing through the pictured I took in Venice and Padova in October, hoping to find something I missed when going through the folders first time. I didn't find anything new, but colors on pictures from Padova botanic gardens called for attention, and here is one of them.
The garden is small and mostly geometrically laid out and walled, with some space outside the wall dedicated to more natural layout. Apparently, it is the world's oldest academic botanical garden that is still in its original location (which I didn't really know up till five minutes ago, just knew it's old). Far as I remember, it's not cheap, considering the size - 4 euro, and our kids paid full price. It was worth it, though.
