Visiting the world’s most original botanical gardens
Written by Valentina Romano
Since we touched the subject of the Chicago’s Botanical Garden, I figured it might have been interesting to know which other beautiful gardens are worth visiting.
If you like the peace and tranquillity of nature, and you are looking for a place where you can relax and let yourself go to the beauty of flowers and plants, then you should have a read at the following list, and check which is the garden that is closest to you.
All these incredible places, displaying some of the most fascinating and rarest plants, will allow you to experience something that you wouldn’t experience anywhere else: you will be totally plunged in nature, surrounded by flowers and protected by herbs. Not to mention the fauna that lives in those parks; all the animals feeding, playing and running around, will make you feel as relaxed as in peace.
If you want to feel the harmony of nature, go visit one of these Botanical Gardens (if not all of them) and let the tranquillity of the surroundings transport you into an alternate reality.
