Beautifully kept. great for a picnic or just a quick break when walking around the crowded streets.more
Another place for which I neglected to write a review after we visited in 7/11. The gardens are a pleasant refuge - filled with some nice statuary - and not overly-crowded on a weekday. As others have mentioned, seating isn't very plentiful.more
