Park
“L’enorme parco, ospita numerosissimi alberi sotto cui ripararsi e rilassarsi durante le assolate giornate estive e due attrazioni principali: un’affascinante laghetto abitato da pesci e tartarughe (gioia per i più piccini) ed una collinetta panoramica (gioia per i visitatori giovani). Il parco ospita un’area per bambini divisa per fasce d'età, con giochi adatti dai 7 ai 14 anni d’età.”

Garden
“Planted in 1545 by Padua University’s medical faculty to study the medicinal properties of rare plants, Padua’s World Heritage–listed Orto Botanico served as a clandestine Resistance meeting headquarters in WWII. The oldest tree is nicknamed ‘Goethe’s palm’; planted in 1585, it was mentioned by the great German writer in his Italienische Reise (Italian Journey). A much more recent addition is the high-tech Garden of Biodiversity, five interconnected greenhouses that recreate different climate zones and explore botanical and environmental themes via multimedia displays.Be aware that even with a PadovaCard, you still have to pay €5 admission.”
