We visited several gardens on Lakes Maggiore and Como and this was our favourite, partly because of the magnificent display of acers and hostas by the koi pond, but also because of its longer vistas and magnificent trees. Very well kept and well worth the entry fee.

Nice to walk around the garden away from the traffic. It was a lovely day when we walked here. I felt for what it was it was overpriced.

What a relaxing day! Bring water because it gets hot out there in June, and the gardens are quite large. Take your time and stroll through the many things to look at, like the pond with the beautiful Koi fish.

Everything in this garden is stupendous. The view of the lake is breathtaking specially on a clear day. The garden itself is very well maintained and at this time of the year has great gazebos of blue rain. The palace is gorgeous.

I do not remember how much I paid to get in, but what I remember is how astonishingly beautiful I found the place. The colours of the flowers and trees, with the water of the lake and the mountains in the background. I really was a magical place. I highly recommand it.

The gardens in Como are really special, and this one is no exception. Leave yourself time to explore, and if like me you have boys, the garden is full of steep slopes that are perfect for rolling down (a time-honored tradition for all kids!). Well worth a visit.

We really bought these tickets because it was on the route from town to our house. It was a much prettier walk than up the road. Definitely lots of photo ops of the gorgeous lake and lots of pretty flowers and a pond. Very expensive for what it is.
