ORTO BOTANICO 1545

The Orto Botanico di Padova is a botanical garden in Padua, in the northeastern part of Italy. Founded in 1545 by the Venetian Republic, it is the world’s oldest academic botanical garden that is still in its original location. The garden, affiliated with the University of Padua, currently covers roughly 22,000 square meters and is known for its special collections and historical design. Since September 2014, following the acquisition of a new area in the south of the ancient Botanical Garden, a tourist destination
of great attraction, the new greenhouses of the Biodiversity Garden are open to the public: a symbolic microcosm that allows the visitor to experience the different climatic conditions and vegetation present on the Earth.
