Having in mind what I saw, I really wonder why this is not a much more popular botanical garden. Most of them are huge and not so easy to navigate. Here at the ticket office you are given a map of the garden, with a...More
Its long vistas, flower borders and cool tree-lined walks were fabulous in the hot July weather. The gardens are extensive, starting right at the entrance, where there is a nice café for lunch, and continuing through the main section extending back to the villa with...More
These gardens are stunning - whilst staying in Stresa we visited other gardens, but this was the largest and proper botanical garden so is worthy of a full day visit. There is a restaurant at the entrance, but nice places to sit and eat a...More
We decided on the day of our Ruby Anniversary to take the boat across the lake to Villa Taranto as we had been told the gardens were exceptional
We were not disappointed they were very well laid out with a mobile app that gives you...More
We arrived by car, following the signs, and still managed to drive right past the enormous entrance, finding ourselves in a long one-way loop to come around again! The entrance faces the lake, on the RH side of the access road, and is opposite a...More
Beautiful gardens, so well set out with something new round each corner. Even if you are not into flora it is a lovely place to spend an afternoon. There is also a lovely restaurant which has snacks and meals

They are well laid out with an easy sequence to follow round them. There is a free app you can download which gives more...More
If you are a gardener this place is worth a detour. Good free parking in front of the entrance. The gardens are very extensive with a superb collection of Dahlias hydrangeas and rhododendrons. There are a great range of other plants and very mature trees...More

Hi Jenny, this garden is vast and a lot of it involves steps and sloping paths ascending and descending well over 50m in hight across two thirds of the garden, there is a wheelchair route around the level section ( comprising the treefern valley, Italian garden, herbaceous border, maple boulevard, and the magnolia wood), although attempting more than that may be a struggle for anyone with mobility problems or pushing a wheelchair. We didn't see anything about wheelchair hire I am sorry to say.
Hope this helps
