Villa Taranto, Verbania

4.7
#1 of 13 in Parks in Lake Maggiore
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.

  • Well cared for in every detail, lush plants and trees, fountains flowing with water at River ... A sight to live and does not appear to be in Italy. Gorgeous!

  • Visited this villa with an organized group. The day by the Lake was great and ended even better with a visit to Villa Taranto. You get in a truly magical, full of colours and scents. The huge park of the residence welcomes a multitude of flowers and plants from all over the world. All kept in excellent order and cleanliness. Perfect to visit in early may, during the flowering of tulips! Truly an unforgettable day!

  • Beautiful garden with old trees, fountains, blooms in rotation to create different shades in every season, water lilies whose leaves can hold a person. Villa Taranto always amazes with its beauty.
