Giardino Giusti, Verona

Giardino Giusti, Verona (must see)

Located near a palace with the same name, the Giusti Garden is an exquisite collection of cypress trees, fountains, moss and water lilies. It is considered to be one of the most beautiful gardens in Italy. The grounds were constructed in the 16th century and were converted into the design that we see today in the 19th century.

You must view the estate in person to truly appreciate its beauty. Italians are known for creating some of the most attractive Renaissance gardens in Europe and the Guisti lives up to that reputation. Mozart, Goethe, and royalty all visited the oasis and walked past the eye-catching maze of flowerbeds and through the cypress-lined paths. Visitors will enjoy the marvelously landscaped lawns and sculptured hedgerows, gorgeous terraces and staircases, marble statues, and fountains.

It is difficult to imagine that such a beautiful space could not only experience extensive damage during the Second World War but recover from it so effortlessly. From the summit of the hill, one can enjoy a beautiful of the surrounding city.

Why You Should Visit:
Beautifully maintained, calm, and interesting place that is kept historically accurate.
The upper levels give good views over the town; the palace rooms can also be toured.

Tip:
Don't miss the secret passage behind the Pavillion (red building at the top left) as the views from the left-hand side across the garden are particularly nice.
There's nowhere to get a drink inside the garden, but hidden just around the corner in the Via Carducci is a very reasonably priced café.

Opening Hours:
Daily: 9am-7pm
