Giardino Giusti is a stunning 16th century Italian Renaissance garden part of the Manneristic palace of the “Giusti” family and designed by Agostino Giusti, Knight of the Republic of Venice and prominent figure of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany, in 1570 over a previously existing 14th century garden. Featuring a splendid park of terraces climbing upon the hill and overlooking the historical center of Verona, the garden is located 7 min walking far from the wonderful 1st century BC Roman Theater in the “Isolo” quartier of Verona, so named as it was an island whose external river branch (“canale dell’Acqua Morta”) has been buried after the 1882 flood. This idyllic and bucolic oasis of peace presents all the inspirational features of the renowned “Boboli Gardens”, Medici’s gardens at Palazzo Pitti in Florence, and is open every day from 9.00 a.m. to 7.00 p.m. (adults €10,00; 0-10 years old and disabled people free entry, students €5,00; Reduced price for Verona Card holders). Tip: Amongst the cypresses geometrically placed along the main track there is the so-called “Goethe’s Cypress”, a cypress older than 600 years and mentioned by the famous German writer in his book “Italian Journey” (1817) as he saw it during his visit in Verona in 1786.

Really lovely morning spent strolling in the gardens. The €10 entrance fee covers the large garden and the apartment. I’d recommend downloading the audio guide. Lots of short but interesting snippets using the QR codes dotted about brings the garden and apartment to life. Lots of photo opportunities and some places to sit and relax, although more benches at the top in the shade are needed! You can refill your water bottle and use the toilets too if you need to. It’s hard to spot on the street as the entrance is quite hidden but well worth a short walk from the old town of Verona.

The Giardino Giusti at ground level is literally uplifting as it draws one's eyes nearly vertically above the central arch between the perfect cypress lanes to the sculpture which once belched smoke and fire. Climb the steep paths and stone steps to the upper tier, rest occasionally in and around rooms recessed into the cliff. The park at the top provides a spectacular panorama of Verona and the mountains. Dog-friendly, but the upper elevations are not handicapped-friendly.

We expected a manicured Renaissance garden and were disappointed. This garden was certainly once very magnificent and well-kept, but now it certainly needs an army of gardeners to become what it once was again. If the entrance fee, which was simply too expensive for what was on offer, played its part, then that was fine. The only thing we liked were the rooms shown at the Pallazo, which showcased some of the grandeur long gone.

The gardens themselves are lovely, we visited in late April and feel this wasn't the best time to see the gardens - I can imagine there is a lot more colour in the summer.

We still enjoyed walking round and it is a nice relaxing start to the morning. Entrance to Giardino Giusti is 10 Euros.

I really wanted to see the maze, but at this time it's cut down pretty short to promote re-growth. We did see a little kid going through and we could see his baseball cap bopping up and down; pretty cute. The symmetry of the gardens is beautiful. There were some flowers blooming but not a lot because of the heat. It was nice to walk the paths and stairs up. I went up the spiral staircase in the tower -- the views up there are beautiful!

These gardens were part of the 16th century Grand Tour and can be found by walking over the Ponte Nueve. A mix of Versaille style garden and wilder woods at the top. There are good views of Verona from the top.

One of the best preserved Renaissance garden in Italy. It's a miracle: this garden survived to the modern barbarism!
The Giardino Giusti is a small garden "all'italiana", full of ancient pagan traces, with a labyrinth (if you need information about the Renaissance labyrinth preserved today, write me) and footpaths in a small wood. The garden ends up on a hill with romantic grottos and artificial stalactites: you have to climb a spiral staircase in a tower to reach the top of the garden.
              Great view of Verona City.
              A great lesson of tuning between nature and architecture.

This is a compact well maintained garden tucked away in a narrow street across the river. All garden lovers and photographers should not miss this peaceful renaissance garden. It's like walking back into the late 15th century. It has all that an Italian garden should have - statutes, maize, fountains, grottos, garden benches etc. etc.

It is a very peaceful place to visit and relax away from the noise of the city.

Take the time to visit on the next street (200 metres away) another little gem - The Church of Santa Maria in Organo.
