The Giardino Giusti contains all the features of a typical Renaissance garden: geometrical layout of flowerbeds and hedgerows, fountains, grottos, mask, mythological statues, avenues of cypresses and a maze. Mozart, Goethe, kings and emperors have all visited this garden, which, for four centuries has been one of the most beautiful and well-visited in the whole of the Veneto. The garden, designed by Agostino Giusti as a setting for the villa which bears his name, is made up of three sections: a lawn, a wooded hill with a ravine and cliff and landscaped terraces with a belvedere.
It was a lovely way to spend a morning on a sunny day in Verona. The gardens are large and I recommend climbing to the top to view the city from the balcony at the top. A pity it didn't have a gift shop as my photos didn't do it justice. Recommend going.
For whatever reason, this seems to be an overlooked gem in Verona. I first visited the garden in late January in the early 90's, and was entirely alone. The beautiful, symmetrical ground plantings, the fountains, half frozen but still operating and the magnificent cypress trees all made a most harmonious whole. One or two years later, my wife and I visited in springtime; again almost alone, and entirely tranquil. Just lovely.
One of the must-go places in Verona! When we were there in March, there was nobody visiting and we had the whole garden by ourselves. It was stunningly well kept, very interesting layout. Would love to visit again in other seasons.
There can be few gardens in the world, as lovely as this. When you enter the garden - it looks at first like a formal garden - with a small maze - but as you explore deeper and deeper into the garden, you become more and more enchanted. At the back of the garden is a small shady wood, within which you will find a steep cliff face. Delve further back into the garden and you will find a pathway that climbs up a ravine - and later disappears into a tunnel that conceals a spiral staircase that leads to the upper garden. What a gorgeous discovery - take you lover here and enjoy a very happy hour in Italy.
This is probably one of the most photographed bridges in Verona, but unfortunately it is not authentic. The original one
was blown up by the Germans during the last World War, and it was reconstructed in the 1950s. It ...
Among the early medieval arches, the most elaborate is the Cansignorio arch. It was built by Bonino da Campione, who
opted for a complex and fastidiously ornamented architecture: the gates that encircle it are enriched by shrines with the ...
