Botanical Garden

Local nameOrto Botanico
LocationRome, Italy

The Orto Botanico dell'Università di Roma "La Sapienza", also known as the Orto Botanico di Roma, is a botanical garden operated by the Sapienza University of Rome and located at Largo Cristina di Svezia 24, Rome, Italy. It is open Monday through Saturday, but closed entirely in August; an admission fee is charged.

The garden was established on this site in 1883, although it is the successor to the Papal Botanical Gardens going back to the Renaissance. It is sited on the slopes of the Janiculum overlooking the 17th-century Palazzo Corsini, which was from 1659-1689 the residence of Queen Christina of Sweden, now the headquarters of the Accademia dei Lincei. Part of the current Botanical Garden used to be the private garden of the Palazzo Corsini.
