PARCO GIARDINO SIGURTA'
Close by to Verona lies the Sigurtà Garden Park, a 600,000-square-metre natural oasis surrounded by moraine hills and awarded in 2023 with the Garden Tourism Awardby the Garden Tourism Network as one of the most visit-worthy gardens in the world. An award that comes after the title of Most Beautiful Park in Italy in 2013 and Second Most Beautiful Park in Europe in 2015.
In 2024 season, Sigurtà Garden Park reopens on 8th March.
Woods that are home to centuries-old trees like the Great Oak, lawns that stretch into the distance, points of interest that catch the eye and move the soul: these and much more besides make up the treasury that the park has cared for for many centuries, with the original garden dating back to 1407. Things not to miss on a visit to the Park include: Tulipanomania, the extraordinary bursting into flower of over a million tulips in the months of March and April with the hyacinths, muscari and narcissus that emblazon with colour the lawns of the Park in one of the most world’s greatest flower displays; 40.000 woodland plants, 18 ornamental lakes, the famous Avenue of the Roses with its thousands flowering roses, an image that has always symbolised the Park, and the Maze created from 1500 yew trees. And there is more, with 50 varieties of annual plants that bring still more colour to the summer, and with the onset of autumn there is the Flowering Flowerbed Avenue, the hundreds of water lilies that take a leading role in the summer months, the Hermitage built in 1792 in the neo-Gothic style, and the Castelletto, housing historic memories of meetings of leading scientist and Nobel Prize winners. For the children the Farm is the perfect place for them to learn all about how the turkeys, donkeys and chickens live, as well as somewhere they can take part in all kinds of fun educational activities. A rich calendar of events designed to offer something for people of all ages and interests: including the Artist’s Saturday, the Children’s Day, the Magical World of Cosplay (for fans of the world of cartoons and fantasy), the Buskers Park day. The park is committed to promoting sustainable and environmentally friendly practices. For this reason, over the years, it has made choices that have revolutionised its world.
