Although the Orto Botanico dell'Università di Siena is managed by the University of Siena, it is located at another street. Tracing its history back to the year 1588, this garden found patronage under the Duke of Siena who encouraged the growing of exotic herbs and unusual plants. Within some years, the collection surpassed over a 1000 species which were arranged in flowerbeds based on country of origin. This garden is open daily and entrance is free.
