Very nicely laid out, although not really suitable for people with limited mobility or pushchairs. Good variety of plants and very well thought out. Liked the art work, not sure if it's a changing exhibition, added interest. It was a bit pricey but there isn't a great deal to do in Gardone so I would recommend a visit. Our 9 year old said it was her favorite place that we visited.

Excellent garden with different settings, e.g. jungle. Dolomites, interspersed with interesting sculptures

Worth visiting, if you like plant identification, a well labelled map to follow, also some interesting sculptures and modern mosaics. We all enjoyed it, quite steep paths, but with many seats, appeared small when we arrived, but a but much larger when you start exploring. Enjoyed the boat trip from Desenzano to get there, it took about 2 hours, and cost €9, but was like having a tour of the lake. We traveled down one side of the lake on the way there, and the other on the way back, but that was accidental. You need to leave by about 4 if you are returning by boat, as the do not run late into the evening.

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.

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.
