We really enjoyed this garden. It's a tiny bit expensive for what it is (I think EUR 12) but it's a nice spot and has some very atmospheric elements. It's incredibly photogenic.

Worth a visit. You get a map with all the names of the plants/flowers/trees etc. There are also artworks in the garden!

A stunning garden with a huge array of different plants and various pieces of artwork. The paths are quite steep in places. There is a small coffee bar at the top of the garden.

Well designed gardens and sculptures on a lovely hillside. Plants of all sizes and varieties- a treat for plant lovers!

The garden is pleasant but takes very little time to walk round. It is expensive to get in and even teenagers have to pay the full adult price. Beware they do not take credit card so four adult tickets will empty your wallet of cash....More

Beautiful garden worth a visit. Plenty of exotic plants and flowers hiding works of art by Miro or Haring. Fun to do with children as they can discover little hidden paths. Unfortunately, the price is a little high. Other negative point: the toilets were absolutely...More

The ferry harbour is next to the Grand Hotel Gardone and the entrance to the Heller Garden is just a 5 minute walk from there. The mini tourist road train can take you there but unless you have mobility issues and would... More

Hello, My opinion would be that the gardens are not really accessible for wheelchairs. I cannot remember there being any steps, however very little of the gardens are flat since it is on a hillside. Also some of the paths... More
