Things to do

Botanical Garden

The Civic Botanical Garden (Civico Orto Botanico) is divided into different sections and is connected with a natural reserve composed of the Biasoletto and Farneto woods (90 hectares total).
Orto Botanico
Over the years, the Botanical Garden has played an increasingly important role as a centre for education and recreation, and is also a natural cornerstone in the relationship between scientific research and environmental conservation, reflecting its ability to offer cultural activities to a growing portion of the population.

The Trieste Botanical Garden is a man-made "island" of plant diversity, where the activities of conservation, cultivation and reproduction allow visitors to admire medicinal, textile and food plants, local horticultural varieties, wild flora endemic to the region and adjacent areas, aquatic and marsh plants, and succulents.
One of the main activities is education. It holds experimental programmes for the disabled, for schools and visitors, provides Braille versions of the information sheets for the garden's different sections and also offers gardening courses.

Interesting fact: Each year, the Trieste Botanical Garden publishes the Index Seminum, which lists the species that are available as seeds with full seed collection data. The list is sent to many other botanical gardens around the world, for free exchange among scientific institutes.
