Orto Botanico in Rome is now open every day.
Rome's Botanic Gardens, or Orto Botanico, is now open on Sundays meaning the public has access every day of the week.
The gardens, located in the Trastevere district, host over 3,500 species of plants and includes a rock garden, green-houses, bamboo grove, Japanese Gardens and a "Scent-and-Touch" garden for visually-impaired visitors.
Originally established in 1883 when the Corsini family donated its garden to the Italian government, the Orto Botanico is now run by the University of Rome La Sapienza.
The gardens have changed little in the last 250 years. The Fountain of the Tritons was built around 1750 by Ferdinando Fuga. The Monumental Staircase, also by Fuga, dates from 1732.
From 12-14 April the garden dedicates three days to the blossoming of the cherry trees in its Japanese Garden, to mark the Hanami Festival, in collaboration with Rome's Japanese Cultural Institute.
