The Audio Guides of the Botanical Garden of Bergamo

18 audio guided tours for vising the Botanical Garden of Bergamo in an innovative and personal way (in Italian)

The audio guides are an easy and convenient way for a self-guided tour. This improves the visitors’ experience in a way that they can get closer to the history of the Lorenzo Rota Botanical Garden of Bergamo, to the themes and areas of botanical collections, get curiosity of individual species and more.

The files are in mp3 format and can be downloaded freely from this web page, or (only on) Saturdays and public holidays, the audio players are available free to the keeper. After a trial, an English version will be also prepared.

This audio guide is a result of the laboratory “for urban habitat enhancement: the Botanical Garden of Bergamo as a tourist resource” of the University of Bergamo – Master of Science in Planning and Management of Tourism Systems (2009), coordinated by Rossana Bonadei and Roberto Peretta, and the following trainees at the Botanical Garden of Bergamo Lorenzo Rota: Roberta Arnoldi and Valentina Bonetti. The narrative voice is that of Chiara Magri, Vento Theatre.
