Ideal place for an evening stroll right on the bank of Lake Como. Has some beautiful marble statues and huge trees of various varieties. Lawns are well-kept. Can have a peaceful evening there.

Pretty park but the restaurant on the far side is the real gem! Alle Darsene is the name of the restaurant. You can see my review on that as well. Here are some pictures I took, pretty place!

This is a lovely place to wander through. Easy walk from the centre of town. The gardens are extensive and easy to walk through in an hour or so. Many photo opportunities. Quiet place to relax and take in beautiful views of Lake Como.

We loved our wander through this beautiful garden. While the villa is not open (at lease when we were there), the gardens and the spectacular lake setting make this a very worthwhile visit. The statuary is also beautiful!

Hi Jubran5, the gardens are closed until March. You can visit Bellagio and Varenna that are very romantic in winter.
