The gravel paths here—well-tread by strollers and their devoted pushers—wind through literally thousands of species of plants. “See palm trees, the Fontana del Tritone, and the Japanese garden,” Cecile Leroy Beaulieu says. She also recommends trekking to the pagoda at the top of the hill for a stunning view of the city. Guided tours are available, but be advised that a modest admission fee applies to all visitors, and that the garden is closed during August, and year-round on Sundays and Mondays.
