  • We had a lovely day at the Botanical Gardens and despite the intermittent thunderstorm we have so many lovely photos from here. It is a reasonable price and you can spend anywhere from 3 to 5 hours...

  • This place is simply breath taking, most amazing Garden I've ever been in to, and this for a very fair entrance fee. The are is huge and stretches over several levels and garden types. I spent several hours there and had to leave very well knowing that I haven't seen everything. One could easily spend an entire day there and not see anything twice. There's a restaurant as well, which serves great dishes.
  • This place is a wonderful botanical garden, clean and tidy, everything is taken care of. there is a Labyrinth of Tulips, several beautiful fountains, small places to relax in the form of gazebos and benches. There are trees that are many years old and planted by prominent people. There is a convenient path through the entire park for people with disabilities.
  • September is a good month to visit the garden as the climate is very comfortable and there are still many flowers to see. Maybe next time I should bring some music or a book to enjoy the garden longer. It is simply such a beautiful place that you want to stay.
  • Absolutely fabulous gardens. Lots of walking but along shaded cobbled paths with plenty of places to sit and eat a picnic or enjoy the views. The plantings of magnificent trees are fabulous and the little cafe at the top of the hill beside the Lily pools is divine. Fill your water bottle up near the bike racks as you go in and avoid the cafe near the ticket kiosk - service very grudging and prices for lukewarm coffee not good. Toilets also available here. Try to get here early to avoid the many visitors but the space allows you to keep your distance readly. I love gardens and this is probably my favourite.
  • A wonderful botanical garden. Rich variety of vegetation colors and shapes. Great architecture that you do not get bored of even after 4 hours of walking. Beyond the variety of plants you can find ponds and lawns to rest. Some parts overlook the view of Lake Maggiore. The place is convenient for walking. Despite the height differences. the trails are moderate and also suitable for those who have difficulty walking. The signs are clear and easy to get around. Tour time about 3-4 hours. We were in April with a wonderful bloom mostly of a wide variety of colors. The rash can be seen in the pictures.
