Overview

Discover the wonder inside you in the spectacular esoteric park of Villa D. Pallavicini! The Pallavicini Park of Pegli was built between 1840 and 1846. Designed by architect Michele Canzio, at the behest of Marquis Ignazio Alessandro Pallavicini, it is an outstanding example of an Italian and European romantic historical garden. A unique aspect of this garden spread over 8 hectares of hills is its theatrical structure featuring esoteric and Masonic nuances and making every visit a historical, cultural and botanical experience steeped in meditation, philosophy and panoramic scenes. A walk through the park offers views abounding with lakes, streams, waterfalls, garden buildings and furnishings, rare plants, the most ancient collection of camellias, glimpses of views and ‘scenic tricks’ capable of seizing the external scenery and of almost endlessly stretching the borders of this “magical” place. Services: bistro, special guided visits, audio guides in 6 languages

We came to these famous gardens on a hot May day and were disappointed to find that a half mile of very uncomfortable walking over a very cobbly road is required before you even enter. The 'gardens' are more like a narrow strip of wood...More

This is a great experience and one not spoilt by the crowds of tourists at other places along the coast. It is easy to get to with the entrance close to Genova Pelgli station. The route through the garden takes you on a personal journey....More

People that enter this beautiful garden near Genova (very easy to get here by train) are invited to a particular and emotional journey. Like in italian opera, we are lead by nature into different moments, landscapes and feelings. The garden itself is nice and well...More

This garden is not just a garden: it is literally a poetic journey. You will go through the rough forest, through an avenue with classic inspired buildings and lovely fountains, that will suddenly change into a hut in the alps. You can imagine a medieval...More

We were staying in Pegli and were keen to visit this green and verdant oasis. Great disappointment. Granted it was very hot during our visit but we found it physically challenging. The park itself wasn't in good condition and many parts were closed to the...More

I imagine that this park, if it was properly maintained, would be absolutely stunning. Unfortunately it isn't- paths are covered with weeds, there are very few helpful sign posts so you can easily miss out large areas of the park, lots of routes are blocked...More

We decided ti visit Villa Durazzo one afternoon as the weather wasn't hot enough for the beach, we were excited to see all the beautiful gardens as described in the guide books. Unfortunately it didn't live up to expectations. There was a lot of maintenance...More
