  • Beautiful as a child, remembered them and the kids are having fun taking pictures of each flower. Just keep them a little more cared for.

  • I managed to take my teens and everyone loved this ride. Charming small paths (sometimes steep, deprecated with strollers) and stairs to the shade of different species of trees.

  • Superb selection of tropical and Mediterranean plants in a breathtakingly beautiful location. Note however that this place is difficult to reach on public transport and any disabled access needs to be booked in advance, otherwise wholly unsuitable for less abled visitors due to the steep gradients and steps.
  • Large gardens with plants from all over the world. Seemed a bit run down and not cared for. Stagnant water in water features and in need of repair.
  • A great sprawling Mediterranean garden with many examples of agaves, succulents, cacti and a large collection of brugsmansias
  • 'Biutifully' wild. One of the last authentic Ligurian places on this of the coast.
  • Very nice garden with a lot of different plants.
