After the ruins we went to the Gardens. Talk about incredible statues and hedges. It was so green beautiful. The cost for the gardens was 6 euro each for me and Brandon so 12 euro together. I liked the Gardens better then the ruins only because I knew the kids weren't going to get hurt running all over the place.
Cypres Trees grew all over in the Garden area. This is the largest one and they had it tied down in several spots. It was huge! Makes a great shade tree for sitting and reading or relaxing! A lot of people will pay the money to get into the Gardens just to sit there and enjoy the peace and quiet. There were several people there with school books and mp3 players. Couples were also sitting around on the benches or laying together. It is so beautiful!
The kids' favorite part was towards the end. We went to the maze they had built out of hedges. It was fun watching them run around and try to make it to the end. Trinity and Ben made it along with Brandon and I but Bella didn't want it to end so she kept running the wrong ways! Benjamin thought it was a blast until he couldn't see anyone then he started to panic a little. After he realized that we weren't too far away he started running again. Out of all the things we have seen so far, this would have to be my favorite!
