“Beautiful gardens.”
Reviewed 7 May 2014

Loved the gardens. You get a map of the gardens at the entrance and there are signs indicating which way to go round the gardens.The tulip displays were magnificent and our dog loved it too. There is a small restaurant where an unwelcoming waitress will take your orders. We just had snacks but they were fine.

“Visit at Villa Taranto”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

Wondeful flowers in a sunny spring day. Big damages of tornado are now partially recovered, the overall scenic is fantastic. A "must" in Verbania

“a mountain of colour”
Reviewed 17 April 2014

Must be the best kept garden, they even have classical music playing in the trees!
Beautiful to walk around, and kids love the flower maze.

“Beautiful, peaceful, special”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

We visited in mid April just as the tulips were in full bloom and the daffodils on the wane. Car parking opposite is free and easy, and a guided numbering system is as easy as it can be. Calming Vivaldi was playing from speakers hidden away, giving the impression there might be a music ensemble around the next corner. A gentle slope takes you up the house and fountain and spectacular views of the lake and mountains at various points. In spring sunshine this has to be one of the most calming places on earth. We ambled the marked path, taking photos all the way, and the walk probably took us a little over an hour - though it would be easy and pleasant to do three times that.
