This place is a real treat to wonder round. Wonderful plant and tree specimens. Uphill walk so not for the faint hearted. I think they have a wheelchair trail. Some statues hidden an old buildings. Looks like they're starting to restore some of them as...More

Beautiful park which is very peaceful with stunning views over Chiavari. In some parts it needs some TLC, but nothing major. Worth a visit for only 1€

The gardens are stunning and so peaceful to walk around where you can see all the different plants, most of which have the country of origin, listen to the waterfall and just escape from all your troubles

There is even a lift available (hiding, right at the back of the courtyard at ground level, in a passageway on the back right hand side) to get you halfway or more up to the entrance. Wonderful views from the terrace when you get out...More
