Great value
Jun 2019 • Couples
4 and not 5 because nothing looks like anything is being done to improve the gardens. Back after three years and still only 1Euro entrance fee! Brilliant but would quite easily pay twice that if they invested in improving the site. There is an old very interesting building in the middle with bridge access that is now completely surrounded by boarding and scaffolding. Not enough plant signage, no site map or handout. Make this place more entertaining/interesting and increase the fee to 3 euros if you have to.

Villa Rocca
Jun 2018 • Friends
I spent a month in Chiavari and fell in love with Villa Rocca. It is a very relaxing park/garden with a nice view of the plaza/town.
The park is very scenic and a great place to have a picnic!

Amazing views and wonderful find
May 2018 • Family
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 well.

Nice park to have a wander in
Apr 2017 • Family
We came here to have a wander and let our two young sons explore and let off some steam. It was lovely for that - nice paths that meander around, a pond with fish and turtles, some ok views from the top and plenty of shade from the sun.

The place could do with some more upkeep, but it is not disastrous. The paths are all decent, the plants are healthy but not overgrown, and the toilets are fine. There isn't a lot of signage to tell you about it, but it is still a pleasant place for a walk.

Peaceful walks

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€

Garden Needing TLC
Jun 2016 • Friends
The overriding impression is that this needs an extensive well-planned reinvigoration with lots of TLC to make it special as it probably once was. Worth a visit but don't have too high expectations. The entrance was not easy to find entry for 1 Euro means you get a bargain. Perhaps it should charge more to fund improvements and the right plan.

Cool Location
May 2016 • Couples
The entrance is a little away from the sign, you need to walk up the winding path from the left. Entrance was a 1 Euro there are variety of paths around the site. It was nice and cool walking around, good shoes and be a reasonable fitness required.

In desperate need of TLC
Oct 2015 • Couples
Bit of a route march to get there although there is a lift that takes you part of the way. Wish we hadn't bothered. Obviously been very nice at some time but has been allowed to fade. Needs some serious work doing on it to make it worthwhile. Some nice plants but not really worth the effort.
