  • Not very expensive and well worth it - a wide variety of medicinal herbs in a quiet garden with good views over Salerno. Not the easiest to find but there are signposts.

  • I know it was raining and at 3 euros per person,it didn’t break the bank. But to me the place needed some tlc. The plants looked half dead, the box hedge certainly don’t look like the picture here...

  • Could not recommend highly enough. Fantastic, beautiful, and simple. It wasn't overly crowded and the paths were stunning. There's a shop that sells tea made from the herbs grown there. It's a peaceful place with a good view of the city. I loved it so much I went twice, and would definitely make a point to go again if I ever return to Salerno.
  • Stunning garden with 5 terraces and lots of history. Beautiful views of the city. Great explanation of the way botany and medicine were linked and how doctors used to treat illnesses. Feels like a hidden gem as even in the height of summer so few people were there
