Expert review of Jardim Botanico

Tropical flowers and manicured lawns are found in this verdant urban oasis.

Just off the city's busiest street, Avenida da Liberdade, this 10 acre green expanse is almost invisible from the outer streets. Brimming with sub-tropical vegetation, I like to escape from the hectic city and wander through the shade of the pomegranate trees, sequoias, cycads and stone sculptures.

Price advice: 

Entry is 1.50 euros, and free for children under six.

Expert tips: 
Come on a weekday to have the park all to yourself.
