  • To see, describe this park is difficult, you have to live it and especially take the time to fully enjoy the discourse quality plants, flowers where with their wonderful scents warn you that spring has already begun, the birds singing and not to miss anything the amazing view both on the Lake as well as the mountains. For families with children there is a nice playground with swings, seesaw, etc., where they can play and run without any danger. From the park there are several trails for walkers with adjoining benches for different where the view opens on the tops and the Lake below. Given the altitude of 700 m to enjoy the flowering you should visit after the first half of April, this is the reccomendation from the restaurant manager.

  • A fantastic tour, very well maintained. Stones are attached with drawings and a story that is told on the tour. Right to relax. Also, plenty of parking spaces in a short distance, can be but too small in very good weather.

  • A huge park, full of different plants-from wild forest to cultivate flowers, possibility of barbecuing in addition to enjoy the wonderful view and air. Impossible to describe all the goodness of this place with a few words-need to see it! p.s. free parking, very good restaurant, a very nice place to spend time with family during all day

  • Has good food and is beautiful but it takes a very very long time to serve food
  • From here you can have a great view for surroundings.
  • Blended with MOTHER NATURE👌👌👌👌
  • A 60-year young Botanical Park (opened by Fr Luigi Giussani in 1957) on the Hill of Arbostora of Carona; It is famous for flowering between April and may of rhododendrons and azaleas. Half and departure for relaxing walks around the Arbostora towards Alpe Vicania.

  • Entrance is free of charge. 25 min on serpentine and you walk longer. the signs, there is a restaurant and children's playgrounds. There are almost no people, fantastic views and clean mountain air. Take a sweater, as the shadow of the cold.
