Discover the Crystal Garden of Parco d'Europa in Padua

There is only to be careful to not get stung. Apart from that, the visit to the Crystal Garden is definitely the right destination for a botanical and cultural break in Padua. It is built inside a large greenhouse in the Parco Europa right in front of the Best Western Plus Hotel Galileo.

The collection of succulent plants protected in the Garden is composed of considerable size and beauty specimens from all around the world: aloes, agaves, euphorbias and other, typical flora that inhabit the desert regions of the earth.

The glass and steel structure of the Garden (with a diameter of 32 meters) reminds of a flower corolla, with two circles one inside the other and it has a varying height from 4.5 to 9 meters to accommodate plants of different heights.
