Lovely garden. We went in December so it was very quiet. We had a wonderful autumn scene, really enjoyed ourselves. A must see if you visit Verona!
Not far from the Centre of the city (short cab ride), these wonderful gardens were evidently "planted in 1580 and are regarded as some of the most beautiful Renaissance gardens in Europe". We thoroughly enjoyed walking through them, navigating the mazes, admiring the parterres, then climbing the hill (no real stress) to enjoy the extensive views of the city from... More
Magnificant gardens with a formal design with cypress trees and box hedges, statues and shaded paths in a very quiet setting with magnificent views of this beautiful historic city. There is also a labrynth/ maze which the kids loved . This garden is a must it is one of the oldest in the western world and influenced garden design in... More
Beautiful gardens but not sure it was worth the 7 Euro admission fee. Some areas not well kept and at this time of year not many flowers in bloom. There was also an art exhibition going on and the large canvases scattered throughout the gardens detracted from the beauty. This was especially noticed when trying to take pictures from up... More
This is a beautiful garden with a history. It was definitely worth the 8 euros. It is a magical place, and a lovely relief from the busy streets of Verona. You can visit this garden at the same time as visiting S. Maria in Organo, the roman theatre, and the Castel San Pietro so it is not the only thing... More
After reading all the rave reviews I was looking forward to what I hoped would be a nice long walk in a beautiful garden with great views. The garden is nice but tiny. Verona is not very interesting in terms of a city view. Nothing like a view of venice or Florence or even bolzano. I was disappointed. I can... More
A magical place: a perfect escape from the frenzy of tourist crowds. We visited in August when it was very hot and it was the end of a long day, but still we found the place absolutely enchanting. It's a little bit hard to find, since it's across the river from downtown and a bit of a walk, but it... More
This is an historical garden and indeed on green oasis very near the center of the city. But for me the best part of the garden is the upper part - you have to climb the steep stairs at the back of the garder - that offers some spectacular panoramic views of the historic hart of the city.
First there is the formal Italian garden structured by Agostino Giusti in 1580 to take an early morning or late afternoon stroll in. Here is a keen study of nature and artifice juxtaposed: finely clipped box hedges, rimmed gravel walks, marble statutes, potted limone plants and yes, the famous Cypress avenue, climbing up to a stalactite grotto underneath a gigantic...

The day of our visit it was 32C and 60% humidity. However this did not spoil what was one of the two highlights of our visit to Verona. (the other being the Opera). The gardens are just over the bridge from the old town and close to the Teatro Romano. The Garden is laid out in a semi formal setting... More
