Villa Taranto, Verbania

(4.7/5 based on 1,200+ reviews on the web)
Designed and established by Scotsman Neil McEacharn, Villa Taranto is home to more than 3,000 plant species. You'll see 300 different types of dahlias, plus azaleas, and Victorian Amazonian greenhouses. The garden's villa has been renovated into government offices that are closed to the public, but you can still admire the outer facade's Victorian artifice. The manicured lawn and fountains outside the villa are free to roam, as are the rest of the 16 hectares (40 acres) of elegant gardens. Put Villa Taranto on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Verbania family vacation planner.

  • Beautiful garden is on a Lake full of fantastic blooms all year round. We visited in the middle of summer and it was beautiful. In spring takes your breath away from how many colors and fragrances can be tasted in this corner of paradise. Truly a special place to spend half a day
