Directions to Orto Botanico di Palermo

The botanical garden in Palermo was created in 1789 next to the Villa Giulia and has around 10 hectares of green grounds. The main entrance is on Via Lincoln, from where you enter a park full of lush vegetation including huge palm trees, pineapple, banana and papaya trees, coffee plants, a rich variety of botanical species and other hundreds of tropical plants and trees as well as an extensive cactus collection.

You can also admire some beautiful neoclassical buildings. At the end of the main walkway there is an aquarium boasting a number of water plants and also a greenhouse full of plants that require special care and protection. Other interesting buildings are the calidarium and the tepidarium which were built during 1790-1797.

The Orto Botanico belongs to the University of Palermo and is still an interesting subject for many botanical studies.

Entrance fee (2013): € 5
