BACK WHEN I WAS LIVING IN CINCINNATI, I lived about a ten minute walk from a big greenhouse and conservatory. On rainy days, if I was feeling antsy, I could go for a walk through a beautiful indoor garden while listening to the rain on the greenhouse roof. It’s about the most comforting feeling imaginable. Since then, I’ve tried to go to the botanical gardens of whatever city I’m visiting whenever there’s a rainy day.

Some are better than others, but Fairmont hotels have put together a list of the absolute best. These are the most beautiful gardens in the world.
