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.

We left the car at San Giovanni and walked along the gardens of villa mezzi. Eventhough you have to pay it is worth it. Beautiful gardens, huge bamboo, very nice view on the lake. It is not huge, but the atmosphere is very relaxing. We...More

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!

A great place to spend a couple of hours exploring the gardens on the shoreline of Lake Como. Some absolutely amazing views and we were lucky enough to see the leaves starting to change colors which made a great show.

Nice little find if you like gardens and want an instragram pic or two. A short little walk and a reasonable entry fee allows and allow a couple of hours if the weather is good. Avoid early morning if you’re wanting full sun for the...More
