Botanical Garden of Rome

The Botanical Garden of Rome is one of the Museums of the Department of Environmental Biology of the Sapienza University of Rome. It covers an area of about 30 acres in the very heart of the city, between Via della Lungara and Colle del Gianicolo, occupying part of the archaeological area called Horti Getae, which in ancient times contained the thermal baths of Septimius Severus. Since 1883, the Botanical Garden of Rome has been situated next to Palazzo Riario-Corsini, with whom it shares a historic garden layout. The area contains numerous specimens of palm trees in the main path. The same area contains samples of Cedrus deodara (Roxb. ex D. Don) G. Don, which is native to the Himalayas, of the Dasylirion group (including Dasylirion glaucophyllum Hook., Dasylirion acrotrichum (Schied) Zucc., both native to Mexico), of Erythrina crista-galli L., which is native to Brazil, and a specimen of Liquidambar orientalis Mill. from China.
