“Italy's answer to Augusta, well almost...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2014

The beautiful gardens in full bloom, azaleas and rhododendrons in abundance, sequoia trees aplenty, on a sunny day by Lake Como, simply wonderful way to spend the afternoon.

“OK, but vastly prefer Villa Carlotta or Villa Balbianello”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

These gardens were nice, long and narrow hugging the lakeside. Definitely nice views across the lake. The plantings weren't that special and there was road noise from the road above the gardens.

“Worth the money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2014

Although the 8Euro for two days seems hefty at first the well maintained and peaceful gardens were worth both our visits. We took our time and spend a couple of hours on each occasion and it was certainly a highlight of our visit.
