“Worth a visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

absolutely beautiful well kept gardens, with little extras hidden around the garden. Well cared for but would be difficult for wheelchairs, disabled or prams to visit.

“very interesting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

The design was very attractive and most unusual. I didn't like the monuments and art deco interspersed among the plants and water features. In my opinion they were not in keeping with the natural surroundings.

“Interesting Gardens”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

Nice place to while away an hour or so in the rain - a bit expensive, though. A bit more interesting than most botanical gardens.

“Cool off in this lovely garden”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

This is a beautiful, peaceful spot. Luckily we visited at the end of the day, an hour before closing and were the only people there. I thought the quirky artwork fitted in very well. There were unexpected items around every turn and the coloured mosaics reminded me of Gaudi’s Parc Guell in Barcelona. The two heads spouting water at each other were amazing. It is probably worth reading up about the art before a visit to fully appreciate it, as the garden contains work from a lot of famous artists.

The running water, little streams and ponds keep the garden very cool, it’s a handy place to stop off halfway up the hill on a hot walk to Il Vittoriale or the restaurants at the top piazza. There are seats and benches scattered in shady areas throughout.

It is well worth the 10 Euro charge, in fact I thought it was a bargain as it must take a lot of effort to maintain a garden on this scale.
