Smaller than we expected. Give yourself time to walk the 300 stairs to the monument at the top of the Botanical gardens. We were there in December and it was beautiful, must be incredible in the spring and summer.

Se street has a lot of places to eat and shop. They have a running shuttle to help you navigate. Very good for tourists. Nice walk on a sunny day!
