Here you can have an idea of the grandeur it must have been to possess a villa on the Italian Riviera. This is also a nice place to have a picknick, cool with beautifull view over Santa Margherita

It is a nice place to walk around and see all of the different sculptures and statues but can be a little slippery and treacherous if the ground is wet so make sure you wear good shoes

This historic house in the midst of beautiful surroundings perched on a hill offer great views, a place to sit in quiet contemplation away from the crowds. It has a bar for refreshments but wins every time for what it can do to recharge the batteries.

This is well with the climb and admission fee for the gorgeous views and gardens. The story of the villa is also very interesting.

We not only enjoyed the gardens and view but also attended a flute concert in the Villa which was just perfection largely due to the great acoustics. Worth the short easy climb!

Shady palms and lemon trees. Views across the gulf to Chiavari. Turtles in the fountains - need I say more?

I attended a wedding here and it was amazing. I spent half the time admiring the views and the garden. It has spectacular views of the harbor and the prettiest gardens. I definitely recommend as a must see attraction if u are in the area.

well worth a visit if you are in Santa Margherita, the steep but short lived steps up are very much worth the effort, cool gardens and ornate Italianate architecture .
