  • Amazing garden, almost a paradise, plenty of exotic trees and plants, flowers and stunning view over the bay of Forio. We loved every minute, and we spent half a day in the garden. Beautiful...  more »
  • These gardens are beautiful although I wish I had come a month earlier when they were in full bloom. Steep climb but plenty of seating on route as well as toilet facilities all around.  more »
  • A wonderful garden filled with a large variety of beautiful plants. With several different sections with their own theme. When you walk around take your time and enjoy the garden. Let its atmosphere sink inn. I highly recommend the garden to anyone remotely interested in a garden or a beautiful place. Also their tea house is good with a good selection of food and drinks.
  • This is simple and awesome place to walk and enjoy the sights. There are also great sights over the nearby city. The plant diversity is great, and the place is thoughtfully constructed. Several of the places in this garden are memorials, and you. An follow their story for several generations. There is a great place to get a small snack too, and plenty of restrooms. At the exit a few taxies were available.
