Il Giardino della Valle, Cernobbio
(4.3/5 based on 65+ reviews on the web)
Over 30 years ago, nonna Pupa single handedly cleaned up an illegal garbage dump on Lake Como and turned into a beautiful botanical garden for her community. Every spring Pupa organizes free concerts and art exhibits in the garden.

Today, at 88 years old, she still works in the garden but she is concerned about the future.

What will happen to the plants and flowers when Pupa will no longer be able to care for them?

This Facebook page aims to build a community of garden lovers across the world to exchange ideas and to help Pupa continues to care for the garden.

  • It is located next to the Villa d'Este garden botanical garden. Flowing Cascades and streams in the Park, the unique sculptures and benches were placed here and there. For the first time unique trees and flowers and plants, is interesting. In contrast with the gardens of the Villa d'Este, Italy, excellent nature through the rich, rustic garden here.
