This is a small garden with the most beautiful lotuses I've ever seen! It's the ideal place to have a cool rest after a visit to the Palazzo dei Diamanti!

Small, shady and free. A welcome break from too much culture, noise etc. Enjoyed the challenge of translating from Italian to English to identify some of the plants. The gardens/plants did look a little sparse.
