I thought it a little overpriced. It is sold as a botanical garden: sure there are some interesting plants but I would say its main feature are an eclectic selection of sculptures, etc that are nestled in among the plants. The garden is quite small....More

I'm sure it's prettier in the sun (like most things) but this garden is very small and not worth the money. The plants or pretty but nothing very special. Really not worth €12 entrance fee - in my view that amount should be halved.

I really enjoyed my visit here, but I like modern art and gardens so for me it was a perfect combo. My advise would be to stroll around Gardone and get an early lunch in the town first as there isn't a café in the...More

Hello, My opinion would be that the gardens are not really accessible for wheelchairs. I cannot remember there being any steps, however very little of the gardens are flat since it is on a hillside. Also some of the paths... More
