What to Expect
Immerse yourself in the unexpected nature of Padua on a half-day tour of the historic Botanical Gardens and a newly designed private Butterfly Paradise.

Meet your guide in front of the Botanical Gardens to discover a scientific garden created in the 16th century by the Venetian Republic to collect and cultivate medicinal plants. Continue with a stroll through the historical center of Padua, and see some of its landmark monuments.

Next, take a 20-minute drive to the tour’s highlight; the hidden Paradise of Butterflies, a romantic private garden designed by a young Franco-Italian family. The owners will welcome you into their garden to see beautiful flowers and shrubs, as well as small animals.
