A green oasis ten minutes from the Arena where you can see collections of flowers, Roman remains and a majestic avenue of cypress trees, fountains, acoustic caves and a maze of hedges among the oldest in Europe. An itinerary of nature, art and history that can be visited in a couple of hours and that culminates in a belvedere with a splendid view of the city.
