  • I spent two days in the gardens in May. This is because I worked as a pianist in the rich musical season the Walton Foundation takes care of every detail. Every Saturday and Sunday when weather is nice, you can attend piano or Chamber music concerts. In the summer also in a Festival of youth orchestras. The place is charming, to regenerate the soul. The garden in the Valley has the charm of the forest, the sunny look of the Mediterranean, with an unmissable view of Forio. Wonderful afternoon of calm, with sunsets, flying birds and frogs croaking. A pleasant bar with oriental atmosphere offers natural products and fantastic cocktail "La Mortella". Try it!

  • Loved the out door concert. Food selection at cafe limited and very busy at concert times. Well worth a look at the beautiful gardens.
  • Beautiful garden with stunning views. Cafe is good for lunch. Offers salads, panini and drinks.
  • Beautiful botanical garden. A little bit overpriced. Have in mind that it is not open everyday.
  • Small but beautiful garden - really work to visit it for a few hours.
  • Beautiful and peaceful gardens - a great way to escape the heat. The cafe is a must for the delicious tea and salads, as well as the feeling of being surrounded by jungle-like foliage.
