The Orto Botanico di Bergamo "Lorenzo Rota" (1,357 m²) is a botanical garden located at the top of a long stairway from Scaletta di Colle Aperto, Bergamo, Lombardy, Italy. It is open daily during the warmer months.

The garden was established in 1972, and named in honor of physician and botanist Lorenzo Rota.

Although smaller than a soccer field, the garden now contains more than 900 species arranged into 23 collections, including:
