  • Stunning gardens, even late in the year. Watch the video in the museum - entertaining and informative, providing the context for the design of the gardens. 
  • Visit this garden is an unforgettable experience. I learned that the property belonged to a pair of English nobles and sincerely you see a refined taste and an endless knowledge of the flora. There are plants and flowers from all over the world. Come on Ischia and not visit this garden is a mortal sin.
