Villa Taranto Botanic gardens

Villa Taranto Botanic gardens

Situated in Verbania, between Intra and Pallanza, the Botanic gardens of Villa Taranto are famous worldwide for their beauty and for the wealth of floral species that grow there.

Designed and created by the Scottish Captain Mc Eacharn in 1931, the Villa Taranto gardens are basically in English style, even if there are some elements of Italian inspiration in the statues, fountains, sheets of water, terraces and cascades.

Covering about 16 hectares and crossed by 7 kms of avenues, the garden hosts thousands of varieties of plants and flowers from all over the world: eucalyptus, azaleas, rhododendrons, magnolia, michelias, acers, camellias, dahlias, tulips, lotus flowers, heathers, dwarf asters, hydrangeas, numerous tropical plants and rare species like Dicksonia Antartica (Australian tree-ferns) and Davidia Involucrata (the dove or handkerchief tree).

Villa Taranto is open from the end of March to the first of November.
