Il Giardino della Valle, Cernobbio

4.4
Garden · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Over 30 years ago, nonna Pupa single handedly cleaned up an illegal garbage dump on Lake Como and turned into a beautiful botanical garden for her community. Every spring Pupa organizes free concerts and art exhibits in the garden.

Today, at 88 years old, she still works in the garden but she is concerned about the future.

What will happen to the plants and flowers when Pupa will no longer be able to care for them?

This Facebook page aims to build a community of garden lovers across the world to exchange ideas and to help Pupa continues to care for the garden.

  • The most magical place in Cernobbio, if you're a fan of nature. It's quite small but the tiny roads through the lucious greenery are fun and it's a good place to see new plants if you live far from the equator. This was the most memorable place from my trip to Italy overall.
  • Nice but full of small insects (mosquitos or something else). We had to leave as we were covered in small itchy bites all over our bodies!
